Who starts at small forward for the Miami Heat? We’re told this is a complete toss-up, with Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and dark horse Rodney McGruder all having a legitimate chance. Though Winslow has as good a chance as any of the three, he will not be gifted the job. It was telling that unlike in the summer of 2016, Pat Riley declined to answer directly in July when asked if he views Winslow as a likely starter.
The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed guard Josh Richardson to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Richardson, who was originally selected by the HEAT in the second round (40th overall) in the 2015 NBA Draft, appeared in 53 games (34 starts) last season with Miami and averaged 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.13 steals and 30.5 minutes. He outperformed every major statistical category from his rookie campaign and was one of eight HEAT players to average double-figures in points, marking the most for any team in the NBA last season.
