When Marcus Garrett was waived by the Miami Heat in January, he was already eyeing summer league. The defensive-minded guard went on to undergo season-ending surgery to fix the instability in his right wrist, but remained around the Heat for rehabilitation all while circling summer league as the target for his return. “That was kind of always the plan,” said Garrett, who was one of the Heat’s two-way contract players last season until he was waived. “That’s why I went on and had the surgery so I could be back for summer league.”
Garrett also impressed as a member of the Heat’s summer league team last year, averaging 11 points on 17-of-26 (65.4 percent) shooting from the field and 3-of-7 (42.9 percent) shooting on threes, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3.3 steals and 0.8 blocks per game to earn a two-way deal from Miami. “No. 1, it’s what Marcus does by nature,” Heat assistant coach and summer league head coach Malik Allen said following Saturday’s win in Las Vegas. “But like I said since the start of camp, he was practicing in San Francisco [at the California Classic] and you could tell he had that kind of look where it was sort of he wanted to get back to how he was playing. “It was great to see him back there. When he gets between those lines, he’s a tough competitor and obviously he lifted us up. It was just great to have him back.”
