Summer league basketball is almost here.

As usual, Miami will take part in both the Orlando and Las Vegas summer league circuits.

The Heat begin summer league play in Orlando at the Amway Center on the Magic’s practice court on Saturday at 5 p.m. against the summer league roster of the Los Angeles Clippers. Miami will play five games over the seven-day event, which includes a championship day being played on the final day of the league on July 8.

After Orlando, the Heat open Las Vegas summer league play on July 9 against the summer league roster of the Dallas Mavericks. Miami will play a tournament style schedule, with a champion being crowned on July 18.

The list includes three players from the Heat’s season-ending roster — Josh Richardson, Briante Weber and Justise Winslow — and undrafted free agents Nathan Boothe, Michael Carrera, Chris Horton, Stefan Jankovic, Damion Lee, Nic Moore, Chris Obekpa and David Walker.

Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard will serve as the team’s head coach during summer league play. The roster includes Howard’s son, guard Juwan Howard Jr.

The Heat’s summer league team began practicing Wednesday and will also practice Thursday and Friday.
