Miami Heat Rumors
Josh Richardson, an avid soccer fan, was in Miami for the Barcelona-Napoli match and spoke to Chris Fischer of NBC6 South Florida. It sounds like Richardson, acquired in the sign-and-trade deal involving Jimmy Butler, is looking forward to taking on his former team. “Honestly, when I come back here, I want to kill the Heat,” Richardson said. “I want to beat them by 20. That’s just how I’m built. If I was on the Heat, I would want to beat Philly by 50 because that’s just how the rivalry, how are teams went.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: After suffering a knee injury in competition last week, Miami Heat F Kelly Olynyk will be unable to compete for Canada in the FIBA World Cup, source tells ESPN. Olynyk is expected to be ready for the start of the NBA season.
Michael Grange: Kelly Olynyk is in Miami being evaluated by Heat re: bone bruise he suffered on his knee in Canada’s exhibition game vs. Nigeria last Thursday. As much as Olynyk wants to play at World Cup I can only presume the team will have a lot of input on what ends up happening.
