Kelly Olynyk visited the Miami Heat’s youth camp at Miami-Dade College Wednesday. He’s already liking his possibilities after signing a four-year deal with the Heat earlier this summer.

Speaking to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ira Winderman, the Heat newcomer said that he is looking forward to playing in Erik Spoelstra’s dynamic offensive style. The Heat’s offense skyrocketed during the second half of last season; Miami shot 39 percent from 3-point range over their last 41 games.

Olynyk also mentioned to Winderman that he has worked out with several of his teammates. The 7-footer also had high praise for Hassan Whiteside, with the two apparently having put Whiteside’s flagrant foul against Olynyk behind them.

It’s great to see Olynyk excited to play for the Miami Heat. Check out this article by my colleague Matt Pineda for a look at whether Olynyk or James Johnson should start at power forward for the Heat.
