The Miami Heat Summer League preview is a promising showcase of young talent. The Heat are playing “the Long game,” in developing players. Look at my article here regarding their moves this free agency period. After Summer League, players will head to the main training camp or to the G-League Sioux Falls Skyforce team. Sioux Falls had a great season and made the playoffs, so the “next man up,” and “we have enough,” mantras mean something.

Look at this blurb here on the Chase Center website announcing the event. The event was expanded to include the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets in 2023. The new Heaters will play in the California Classic until July 10 and then will play in the Las Vegas Summer League starting July 13.

The Las Vegas Summer League setup is like the NBA play-in tournament, but better. Look at this article here on ESPN explaining the setup. Once a place to avoid for sports events, Las Vegas is now a “no-brainer location.” Look at this article here on Bleacher Report on how Wayne Legarie and Albert Hall brought the NBA to Las Vegas.

The roster is as follows: Keshad Johnson, Gabe Brown, Kel’el Ware, JC Butler, Pelle Larsson, Josh Christopher, Zy Pullin, Caleb Daniels, Neal Sako and Isaiah Stevens. Look at this article here on on the player roster. Cole Swider and Alondes Williams, both G-League standouts, will use the tournament to display their value to the Heat.

Kel’el Ware, Neal Sako and Warren Washington are all over 6’10.” The Heat are balancing out “small ball” with “bully ball.” Swider and Williams should play in the first half only, leaving the draftees able to show their talents.
