The Heat have added forward Micah Potter and guards Javonte Smart and Dru Smith to their training camp roster, according to a team press release.
Potter appeared in six Summer League games with Miami and averaged 7.3 PPG and 3.5 RPG. He went undrafted out of Wisconsin.
Smart averaged 5.5 PPG, 2.8 RPG and 2.2 APG with Miami’s summer league squad. Smart played three seasons at LSU, becoming just the seventh player in school history to record at least 1,200 points, 300 assists and 111 steals.
Smith, who attended Missouri, also appeared in six Summer League games with the Heat and averaged 8.0 PPG, 2.5 APG and 1.17 SPG.
All three were signed to Exhibit 10 deals, bringing Miami’s camp roster to 19, one below the limit, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets.
Exhibit 10 contracts give NBA teams a chance to bring players to training camp and get a look at them without guaranteeing them a regular season roster spot or any real salary. All three could potentially earn a $50K bonus if they remain on the Sioux Falls Skyforce roster for at least 60 days. The Skyforce are the Heat’s G League affiliate.
The trio could also be competing for Miami’s open two-way slot.
One thought on “Heat Add Potter, Smart, Smith To Camp Roster”
Smith and Potter are the type of guys they like to have with the Skyforce. Smart has the edge for that 2nd 2 way, after losing both Jarreau and Nembhard. Tyson Carter could make sense, but he still needs to get stronger and has international ties, so not sure of his situation. I would assume the last camp spot would go to someone from someone else’s summer league roster, although I cant really suggest anyone off the top of my head b/c my list somehow got deleted, and I’ve been lazy about redoing if, mostly out of being deflated about it
