Olynyk said he has had the opportunity to hit the practice court with James Johnson, Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside, who apparently is becoming a fast friend. “He’s a great guy, a great character, a super nice guy,” he said of their encounters. “But he’s a beast. I’m really excited to play with him and be able to play with a guy of his size and his abilities on the floor, defensively, offensively, on the glass. He’s awesome to be around and [I’m] really looking forward to playing with him.”
What kind of things have you been working on this summer? Tyler Johnson: A lot of catch-and-shoot, a lot of pick-and-roll jumpers and then just the everyday things that I was trying to work on before: my handles, reading the game, understanding the game, time and situation. Trying to do different things while I’m tired to simulate what it would be like in a game to keep track of five, six, seven different things while you’re tired.
The Miami Heat guard recently put his Pinecrest estate on the market for $5.25 million, but said this week it had nothing do to with protecting the resources from the four-year, $50 million free-agent contract he signed last summer. Instead, during an appearance at the Heat’s youth camp at Miami-Dade College, Johnson said the nearly 12,000-foot home would best be split into dual investments. “I’m not necessarily in a rush,” he said. “I’ll see when somebody puts an offer in or something like that. It was just a business decision to help my mom out. So that way I can get her a home that’s just as nice as mine. She probably deserves one that’s nicer than mine.”
Storyline: Real Estate
Tyler Johnson: “I remember [Pat] Riley telling us after the trade deadline he wanted to keep the team together just to give us a chance. He wanted to give us the opportunity to compete and try to make the playoffs. Obviously we fell short of that goal. But with the way that team was headed and the way we bonded and the way things have been going this summer, all I was hoping for during free agency was that we brought back the guys who were in the trenches last year.”
