Kelly Olynyk is sporting some of his Miami Heat gear this week at his annual Olynyk Klynyk. But he was awfully close to being shipping out of south beach and sent to the Dallas Mavericks, the team that drafted him in 2013. “It obviously didn’t happen. It got called off or fell through, so it’s nothing now,” Olynyk told the media about the near-trade. “It is what it is. It’s a business. It’s the business side of the game, fortunate or unfortunate, however you want to look at it. But you get paid to do something you love and there’s not much to complain about in this industry, honestly.”
Storyline: Kelly Olynyk Trade?
Olynyk is expected to participate for Canada in the World Cup in China, which begins in late August. It’s part of his busy summer, with NBA training camps opening in late September. “If all goes well, you don’t get back to the USA until like Sept. 18 or something or 20,” Olynyk said. “Training camp starts like three or four days later. But [World Cup] training camp starts at the beginning of August.”
