It’s worked, as the score-first guard has excelled as a facilitator this preseason with 14 assists and just one turnover. That stat is proof of a noticeable change in Johnson’s game after he posted a 1.6 assist-to-turnover ratio (121 assists and 77 turnovers) over the first two seasons of his NBA career. “The game is starting to slow down a little bit,” Johnson said Tuesday. “I think my first two years I looked to just score, score, score and now I’m starting look for the pocket a little bit more.”
Until the agreement with Udrih, the Heat appeared poised to go with late-season addition Briante Weber, who went undrafted in 2015 out of Virginia Commonwealth, as their backup point guard. Weber now would appear to stand third string at the position if he is able to survive the final cut. In addition to Dragic, Udrih and Weber, the Heat’s backcourt also features offseason free-agent additions Dion Waiters, Wayne Ellington and Rodney McGruder, as well as returning guards Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson, who was retained on a four-year, $50 million contract this offseason.

Heat owner hints at Chris Bosh return

In a letter emailed Thursday night to Miami Heat season-ticket holders to coincide with the release of the team’s 2016-17 schedule and also posted on the team’s website, Heat owner Micky Arison hinted at a return by All-Star forward Chris Bosh while focusing on where the franchise stands. Toward the close of the email, Arison wrote: “What won’t change is the culture of this organization. The Miami HEAT is a Championship organization. I fully expect this team, from Pat Riley to Head Coach Erik Spoelstra, to our veterans Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Goran Dragic and Josh McRoberts, to our returning young core of Hassan Whiteside, Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson, to the fresh faces joining the HEAT Family to continue our mantra of being the ‘hardest working, best conditioned, most professional, unselfish, toughest, meanest, nastiest team in the NBA.’ ”
