Heat Links:

  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald believes James Ennis could see his last days in a Miami Heat uniform if he doesn't show improvement in training camp:

    "Ennis appears the only incumbent Heat player at risk of being cut, with his $845,059 salary becoming fully guaranteed on Oct. 28. Ennis, who disappointed the Heat in summer league, is fortunate that the Heat hasn’t used its roster spots on an established veteran who wants to be here (such as Rasual Butler, who expressed interest). The Heat players who have been signed to spots 16 through 19 are viewed as D-League players, though forward Greg Whittington could challenge Ennis. If Ennis struggles in camp, the Heat will consider keeping the 15th roster spot open until something intriguing comes along. Former Georgetown center Joshua Smith, who has lost 20 pounds to get below 345, will audition for Miami this week."
