With Labor Day behind us, the NBA season is gearing up. The Miami Heat will begin training camp Sept. 28. And that means some rookies will compete for a two-way roster spot.

The Miami Heat’s official Twitter account announced that the team has signed undrafted rookies Micah Potter, Javonte Smart and Dru Smith, who all played with Miami’s summer league team.

The three players signed Exhibit 10 contracts, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Exhibit 10 contracts include training camp invitations and allow the Heat to send those players to their G League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Potter, Smart and Smith will all compete for the Heat’s second two-way roster spot. Marcus Garrett already has Miami’s other two-way roster spot.

Smart and Smith are both guards, while Potter is a 6-foot-10 center. Garrett is a 6-foot-5 guard, but that shouldn’t lead anyone to think Miami won’t go with another guard for their second two-way roster spot. After all, Miami’s two-way players last year — Max Strus and Gabe Vincent — are both guards.
