Report: Charlie Westbrook takes 20th and final Miami Heat training camp roster

USA TODAY Sports

The South Dakota guard grabs a ticket for the Bahamas next week...

Hot on the heels of the Miami Heat signing veteran journeyman Roger Mason Jr. comes a report from Sportando.net that the 20th and final training camp roster spot will be going to South Dakota guard Charlie Westbrook.

Hoopsrumors.com has a bit of insight into Westbrook:

The guard was in summer league with the Trail Blazers earlier this summer but did not advance further with the team.

The 6'4'' guard out of the University of South Dakota spent last season in Verona, Italy and appeared to be on his way back there this season. The 24-year-old turned down a pair of training camp invites in August to go back to Europe, but he may try and make things happen in the states this season. Westbrook isn't likely to hook on in Miami for this season, but he could make an impression and continue to build on his game in the D-League if he stays in the U.S.

Sounds like Westbrook could potentially be a future project for the Heat D-League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce, if he doesn't return to Europe. With their new control over the Skyforce basketball operations and infusion of Heat talent into their infrastructure, we could see more of these types of signings rather than just letting go of a player like Patrick Beverly develop elsewhere.

No official word from the Heat just yet on this signing but we'll update once we hear anything...
