Rudy Gay retweeted a picture of himself in a group of basketball players including Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, D'Angelo Russell, Aaron Gordon, Devin Booker, Julius Randle, Eric Bledsoe, Jordan Clarkson, Isaiah Thomas, and Jahlil Okafor.

The event was held July 25-27 in Los Angeles according to the Vertical. One takeaway from this picture is the youngsters on other teams are working just as hard to elevate their own game for next season.

"First up was the Nike Basketball Academy, which was held at a private airport hangar. It’s a beautifully constructed facility that was essentially built from scratch for this event. Twenty collegiate and 60 high school prospects conducted drills in the afternoon and played five-on-five games in the evening, often with NBA players (and Nike endorsers) such as Aaron Gordon, Stanley Johnson, Devin Booker, Isaiah Thomas, Julius Randle, Tyler Ulis, Jordan Clarkson and Jordan McRae."

"In addition to the on-court action, the players were invited to participate in cross-fit-style and yoga workouts on the beach in the morning, take part in film studies and Q&A sessions with LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and receive on-court instruction from former NBA players such as Rasheed Wallace, Brian Shaw and Gary Payton. Chris Bosh, Jahlil Okafor, Rudy Gay, Eric Bledsoe, Tristan Thompson and D’Angelo Russell were also roaming around the star-studded event."

Spotting Chris in a gym, even if only as a mentor for youngsters, is an welcome sight for Miami Heat fans. That Rudy Gay, who has recently expressed interest in the Heat, was there also paints an intriguing picture that Miami's roster situation may still be in flux.
