Heat officials already have had a long look at three Kentucky prospects who could all go in the teens of the June 20 NBA Draft. And they’re going to get an even closer look in the weeks ahead. The Heat, which has the 13th overall pick, has scheduled a private workout and visit in South Florida with Kentucky forward PJ Washington, according to a league source. Miami also plans to bring in Kentucky guard Tyler Herro, according to NEO Sports Inside’s John Alfes. And the Heat has shown interest in scheduling a South Florida visit and workout with Kentucky 6-6 swingman Keldon Johnson, though nothing was booked as of late last week.
