    The Heat have officially signed first-round pick Tyler Herro.

    Herro has been balling in Summer League, and there was some thought that the Heat's delay in signing him to a deal had to do with the trade restrictions that come with the formal transaction. The Heat now have to wait 30 days before they can trade Herro, which takes him off the table in any deal that needs to happen soon. Miami is a popular name in the Russell Westbrook hunt, but unless the Thunder want to wait it looks like Herro won't be part of the package.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Heat would like to keep Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro out of any potential deals for Russell Westbrook.

    That's far from surprising, as teams tend to want to keep their good, affordable players. The Heat are also hard-capped by the sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler and would need to send out more money than they absorb in any deal. That means that the Thunder, who have gotten themselves closer to the tax with their other offseason moves, may not feel as much pressure to take on Miami's bad deals without something good in return. It's worth noting that the Heat have yet to sign Herro, as doing so would mean he can't be traded for 30 days. We're hoping that Adebayo remains in Miami because he's looking at a great setup with early-middle round potential.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    Coach Eric Glass doesn't expect KZ Okpala to play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    It looks like Okpala won't be making a Summer League appearance. We'll get our first looks at him in the fall.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn finished with 19 points, eight assists, five rebounds, two threes and a steal in 33 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.

    Nunn is doing all he can to land a contract with the Heat after yet another productive Summer League game. Nunn is unlikely to see any minutes on the Heat this season, but he'll be a fun player to watch in the G-League should he get a two-way contract.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro continued to dominate the Summer League with 25 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and five treys in 33 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.

    Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra were in attendance for this game as Herro once again showed off his skills against Summer League competition. Herro is looking like a rotation piece for the Heat next season and will make for an interesting pickup if he falls into more minutes as the season wears on.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    KZ Okpala will not suit up against the Magic for Tuesday's Summer League game as the team wants him to get up to speed before inserting him into game action.

    Okpala officially became a member of the Heat on Sunday, so it's understandable to see him play catch up for a few days. Okpala will get another opportunity at a Summer League game on Wednesday.

  • Charles Cooke
    G, Miami Heat

    Heat G Charles Cooke (concussion) is set to return to Summer League action against the Magic on Tuesday.

    Cooke will come off the bench against the Magic. After Cooke failed to appear in any games for the Heat last season, he will look to make an impression in today's Summer League game.

  • Dwyane Wade
    SG, Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade was named the winner of the Players Association's "2019’s Most Respected Award" on Tuesday.

    Wade takes home another award in his retirement season. The three-time NBA Champion and future HOFer will be missed.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    The Heat are not sure if rookie KZ Okpala will suit up in Summer League.

    Okpala looks like an athletic wing with a solid jumper, which lines up with the sort of players that the Heat have been hoping to mold in recent seasons. He officially became a member of the Heat yesterday and the team wants him to get up to speed before putting him on the court.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro did it all on Sunday in a 93-81 win over the Jazz with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

    He shot 7-of-18 from the field and 1-of-8 from beyond the arc, but he was able to contribute in other ways. Herro is showing that he is more than just a shooter as the Heat have forced him to play some point guard in these games. Herro will likely be a nice fit in the Heat rotation for the 2019-20 season.

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn led the Heat in scoring for the third time in five games with 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a win over the Jazz on Sunday.

    He added three rebounds and eight assists to the box score. Nunn has played extremely well in the five Summer League games for the Heat and he is a huge reason that they are undefeated. Nunn has not yet played a game in the NBA, but he has a chance to land a two-way contract with a team if he stays hot.

  • Duncan Robinson
    PG, Miami Heat

    Duncan Robinson played well on Sunday in a win over the Jazz as he put up 20 points and 10 rebounds on 8-of-13 shooting.

    He shot 2-of-7 from 3-point territory and 6-of-6 from inside the arc. Robinson is proving that he has a year of NBA experience under his belt with his stellar play thus far. He has a roster spot locked down for next season. However, expect him to have a limited role like he did last season.

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    KZ Okpala will be missing the Heat's Summer League game vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

    Okpala is joining the Heat via a draft day trade which was just completed yesterday, so this comes as no surprise. Hopefully, we can catch a glimpse of what he can do in their next game,

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Per Sam Amick and Brett Dawson of The Athletic, the Thunder and Russell Westbrook will meet to discuss his future with the organization and the Heat, Pistons and Rockets are all potential suitors should the Thunder test the trade market.

    Oklahoma City is positioning itself for a rebuild and likely don't want Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to be playing off the ball or off the bench, and Westbrook is unlikely to want to waste the final elite seasons of his career shepherding a young team. The Heat and Pistons seem like the easier landing spots here considering their obvious needs at point guard, while any transaction with the Rockets would be a complex multi-team deal. Any team acquiring the 30-year-old Westbrook must be prepared to deal with four more seasons at an average annual value north of $40 million.
