Miami Heat shooting guard Kendrick Nunn found his offensive rhythm during Tuesdays Summer League victory over the Sacramento Kings, dropping 27 points, with 20 coming in the second half. Nunn was on the floor for 36 minutes, and shot 9-for-20 from the floor overall, including 4-for-8 from three. While he did commit six fouls, he piled up five rebounds, three assists and two steals, attempting to play his way onto a Miami roster that could have some openings heading into 2019-20. Nunns most notable action last season came as a member of the Warriors G League affiliate.
Miami Heat small forward Duncan Robinson is going to attempt to shoot his way onto an NBA roster in 2019-20. Unfortunately for Robinson, his shot wasnt falling during Tuesdays Summer League win over the Sacramento Kings, as he finished 2-for-11 from behind the arc. But he did finish with 10 points, six rebounds and six assists, as the Heat appear confident in deploying the sharpshooter a significant minutes total. Robinson appeared in 15 games (one start) with Miami last season, although he shot an uncharacteristic 28.6 percent (10-for-35) from long range. He looks to earn more regular-season looks through his summer performance.
Miami Heat power forward Yante Maten put together a strong showing during Tuesdays Summer League win over the Sacramento Kings, collecting 21 points and nine rebounds. Maten took advantage of his trips to the free-throw stripe, where he finished 11-for-13. The 22-year-old got his first taste of NBA action last season in a brief two-game stint with Miami, but is looking to crack the rotation on a more consistent basis heading into the upcoming season in the wake of the deal that sent big men Kelly Olynyk and Derrick Jones Jr. to Dallas.
Miami Heat forward Duncan Robinson showed off his sharpshooting in their Summer League opener Monday night. Robinson scored 17 points on 5-for-8 shooting, while adding five rebounds, four assists and three three-pointers in just 20 minutes. With a year already under his belt, Robinson looked extremely comfortable in a featured role and had little trouble hitting open looks on a consistent basis. Robinson will be fighting for a spot on the Miami roster and so far so good. With the committee of combo guards and forwards in Miami, Robinson is likely on his way to another two-way contract.
The Trail Blazers acquired center Hassan Whiteside from Miami on Monday. The 30-year-old, who signed a four-year, $98 million deal with the team in 2016, averaged 12.3 points and 11.3 rebounds to go along with 1.9 blocks per contest last season despite playing just over 23.3 minutes per game. With this move, the Heat will clear much needed cap space for guard Jimmy Butler, who will head south in addition to the Blazers having a formidable presence in the middle with questions surrounding the health of center Jusuf Nurkic, who went down at the end of the season with a leg injury. Even with some years under his belt, Whiteside still has plenty of gas left in the tank and would make a welcome addition to fantasy rosters this upcoming year, especially if Nurkic misses an extended amount of time.
