1 Min Read

Although the Miami Heat didn’t have any picks in the 2021 NBA Draft on Thursday, they found a way to still add talent by the end of the night.

The team agreed to sign a handful of undrafted players following the draft.

One of the players, DeJon Jarreau of the University of Houston, seemed to confirm his own signing.

All of these players will likely be part of the Heat’s Summer League roster as they all look to solidify their spots in the league.

The Heat also added guard D.J. Stewart to their Summer League squad.

The 22-year-old Stewart averaged 16.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists for the Mississippi State Bulldogs last season.

Although the Heat didn’t make any picks on Thursday night, they will maximize their undrafted haul. After all, the Heat have an unparalleled developmental program.

The organization is well-known for turning undrafted guys into solid NBA players. The Heat have done it recently with Duncan Robinson, Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Johnson.

The Heat concluded the 2020-21 campaign with a 40-32 record.
