Some members of the Miami Heat have a lot to prove this summer.

Believe it or not, the NBA 2018-19 season is rapidly approaching, with league-wide training camps set to open in about two months.

While the Miami Heat offseason hasn’t necessarily been the sexiest so far, there is still plenty to speculate about as we head towards September 25.

For instance, how will the organization handle the logjam at shooting guard?

There’s also the question of whether or not head coach Erik Spoelstra will be more comfortable handling his rotations this upcoming year. As well as what role guys like newly signed Derrick Jones Jr. and Justise Winslow will fill, in Miami’s preferred system of positionless basketball.

The Heat’s offseason has gone pretty much as many expected it would have, having re-signed key pieces such as Wayne Ellington, and continuing their relentless pursuit of avoiding the luxury tax threshold despite larger contracts still on the books (which unfortunately means not being able to sign any top-tier free agents).

Of course, there are questions that the Heat still need to address this summer too, like the statuses of franchise staples, Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem.

But for now, we can continue to talk about the players that will almost certainly be apart of the team next season.

Obviously every player needs to work hard heading into training camp in order to be ready and successful for the start of the season, but there are three Miami players in particular that really need to pump up their training regiment in order to prove their worth.
