Miami Heat revealed their 2019 Summer League roster with the first scrimmage only days away.

“Practice sessions will begin Friday, June 28 and will continue through Sunday, June 30 in Sacramento. The HEAT begins summer league play on Monday, July 1 in Sacramento, and will play three games over the three-day event before heading to the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with their first game scheduled for Friday, July 5. The team will play four games in Las Vegas before entering a tournament style schedule, with a champion being crowned on Monday, July 15.”

Players with the Heat last season and its first-round draft pick include (by age):

Tyler Herro – 2/20/00 (19)
Yante Maten – 8/14/96 (23)
Kendrick Nunn – 8/3/95 (24)
Charles Cooke – 7/1/94 (25)
Duncan Robinson – 4/22/94 (25)

Free agents looking to secure a training camp invite are:

Nick Mayo – F – 08/18/97 (22) – Eastern Kentucky
Ibrahima Faye – C – 1/10/97 (22) - Senegal
Kyle Alexander – F – 10/21/96 (23) – Tennessee/Canada
Chris Silva – F – 9/19/96 (23) – South Carolina
Trey Mourning – F – 8/21/96 (23) – Georgetown
Jeremiah Martin – G – 6/19/96 (23) – Memphis
Nick Weiler-Babb – G – 12/12/95 (24) – Iowa State

“Development Coach Eric Glass will serve as the Head Coach during summer league play.”

Summer League always brings unexpected results, and this one promises to be no different.

The roster is subject to change with the expected addition of KZ Okpala later on and possible shuffling among participating teams during the exhibitions.

Among the free agents, Kyle Alexander stands 6’11” with an incredible 7’6” wingspan and hands that comfortably palm the ball.

Alexander has a way to go before he can palm the ball like Connie Hawkins, who was known as “The Hawk” for the young ones out there.
