Miami invited three undrafted players to try out for a two way contract

The Miami Heat invited three undrafted rookies to training camp, giving each an opportunity to

compete for the second of a pair of two-way contracts for the team.

Former LSU guard Javonte Smart, former Wisconsin center Micah Potter and ex-Missouri guard Dru Smith all signed Exhibit 10 contracts, which includes a training camp invitation. All three players were members of the Heat’s summer league team that competed in Sacramento and Las Vegas in July.

The addition of these three players leaves the Heat with 19 players under contract. One below

the maximum amount that a team can carry during training camp.Of the 19, 14 are signed to standard contracts. Another player, Marcus Garrett signed a two way deal, which will allow him to be available to play in 50 of the Heat’s 82 games this season.

Those players will get the chance to compete for a two way deal unless the Heat unexpectedly

gives a two way contract to a player signed to the 20th and final camp roster spot.

The contracts also give the Heat the right to send all four of those players to their G-League

affiliate in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Teams can sign as many as eight players to Exhibit 10 deals, allowing Miami to cycle through four more Exhibit 10 players, if it chooses, during training camp. Miami however can not exceed 20 players in training camp at one time.

The Heat begins training camp Sept. 28 and opens the preseason Oct. 4 against Atlanta
