Miami Heat: A Look At Some Of The Summer Signees – Jamal Cain And Orlando Robinson

Jamal Cain was an elite scorer during his graduate transfer season at Oakland. At 23 years old, Cain comes in as an older rookie with a fairly established game.

He averaged a double-double this past season with 20 points and 10 rebounds a game. Some of his major struggles though came from a poor shot selection, which then led to inefficient shooting splits.

Despite that though, the 6’ 7” swingman has the tools to become a talented bench scorer for the Heat who can also help to provide more rebounding. Putting him alongside another scorer off the bench could enable both players to provide Miami some valuable minutes when the stars are off the floor.

Last but not least, there is Orlando Robinson. The 7-footer out of Fresno State had a very impressive college career, as he averaged double-digit points across the entirety of it.

He saw a two-point increase from freshman to sophomore year and another five-point increase from his sophomore to junior year. That jump saw him, in his junior year, averaging 19.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.

It wouldn’t be shocking for Robinson to land with the Heat’s main roster this season, as he is a capable floor spacer at a position that this team desperately needs. Whether Robinson is placed next to Adebayo, so that the paint clears up or just placed in with Jovic, he should be a valuable piece off the bench to help with offensive flow.

These profiles are worth paying attention to, as recent news has provided a lot of speculation about the signing of these players. That is because the organization looks to move some players for first-round picks in the pursuit of Donovan Mitchell and Kevin Durant.

Many recent reports indicate that Miami is looking for no less than a first, in some cases unprotected, for some of their other talents. So, if the case is that they do end up moving those players, it would stand to reason that depending on who is moved, some of the aforementioned players could become end-of-the-rotation players for Miami in the regular season.
