The Heat's summer roster could soon be shaken up, with rookie center Justin Hamilton, the lone player on the summer roster who spent part of 2013-14 with the Heat, mulling a guaranteed two-year contract from a team in Zagreb, according to a source familiar with the situation.

The players most likely to be waived are likely center Justin Hamilton and forward Eric Griffin. “We don’t know at this point,” Spoelstra said. “We’re going to probably use this entire week, all the way until the end. We’ve been giving guys pretty good looks so far. Whether it means more [playing time], I don’t know. It means you have to make the most of whatever you’re getting.” South Florida Sun-Sentinel
