Miami Heat release Summer League info and roster

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The defending champs are getting ready for a whole different league this offseason...

NBA Champion Jarvis Varnado and new NBA draftee James Ennis headline this year's Miami Heat Summer League squad and begin practice at the end of the week, as announced today by the team.

This team will be representing the Heat during Summer League play in Orlando, FL which begins on Sunday, July 7 and wraps up July 12 with five games scheduled in between (including a "Championship Day" on the final day of the tournament). Just one day later, the team will fly out to Las Vegas for their first game out west. The team will play at least five games during a tournament-style schedule, where a champion will be crowned on Monday, July 22.

As expected, 2012 NBA draftee Justin Hamilton will not be participating due to injury. Ricky Sanchez, whose rights were acquired in the Dexter Pittman trade with the Memphis Grizzlies, will be on the team.

The following list is the complete Miami Heat Summer League roster (with name, position, age, weight, birthdate, prior team, birthplace and years pro listed):
