Precious, KZ and Strus giving me plenty of joy. We keep on finding talent under the rocks. We need to find good value in a trade for Nunn and KO

No. This team is not cutting a guaranteed contract right now. Unless it's for someone really worth it.

great game by the heat.they all played pretty well. specially fake mcbob,guy was on fire beyond the arc. i got a feeling that this is going to be fun to watch because they play with intensity.it was surprising to me that the heat won in the rebounding department as well

if achiwa becomes a rebounding beast that would be the best that the heat could hope for from this rookie,kudos to KZ as well.reminded me of jones junior role

At this point, Strus might need to be on the main roster. Do we cut someone like Silva to make him a permanent part of this team?

And Precious and Okpala? If this continues, Miami is going to be SICK! One of those two is going to force their way into the starting lineup this year. And the other is going to be nipping at their heels.

Man, this front office/coach staff knows what the hell they're doing!

Two way guys can be active for now 50 of the 72 games in this fan-less covid year (previous limited to 45 days). So not really pressing for Strus to be on the main roster.

Harkless has been really dissapointing. Small sample but i dont see how Spo gives him the starting spot after this showing

Achiuwa with the nice double-double. Strus was impressive. Okpala with a strong game as well. Good game.

Hoping the final roster looks like this:

Dragic
Herro
Jimmy
Robinson
Bam

Nunn
Bradley
Meyers
Olynyk
Iggy

KZ
Precious
Haslem
Strus
Harkless

Silva has to go he's not NBA caliber whatsoever

Precious had like 20 rebounds. Kid has played above my expectations so far.

Precious makes me hopeful that I'll soon never have to see Meyers leave the bench again.

Igoudala's hairline was too pristine. Need the reporters to bring that up

I think he’s been wrongly type casted as a small ball 4 and thats just not him, he’s too light and its showing. He’d probably be better off the bench.

I can't believe people here are trashing Chris Silva now. WTF? Silva is a good energy player off the bench.

My guess is that Precious Achiuwa will be in the rotation from the get-go, and that is really good news.

I'm never sure if Jaylen Brown is overrated or underrated, but doesn't ever feel like he's properly rated when someone gets specific about him. Good guy tho

Yeah, I think it's obvious Precious, Bam, and Olynyk should be our bigs down the road, and Harkless probably ends up getting replaced by Okpala. Remember, a lot of people had Okpala going in the lottery last year. That he fell to a position where we could get him was extremely fortuitous. Stash him for a year while he develops, then set him loose on the league. Man, the way we develop youth is incredible. We did the same thing with Duncan Robinson as well. Just a thing of beauty to watch these guys. This would be the lineup I'd love to see be a thing:

Pg: Herro / Dragic / Nunn
Sg: Robinson / Bradley
Sf: Butler / Okpala / Iggy
Pf: Achiuwa / Okpala
Cc: Adebayo / Olynyk

Nunn and Iggy would be situational. The rest of the lineup would see regular minutes and just go nuts all over the league...

I don't think it's about trashing Silva as much as it is about figuring out the numbers. I think Strus has played his way onto this roster...
