The Miami Heat are searching for more back-court depth. The team management can include John Lucas III in a training camp deal. Former Oklahoma State guard Lucas is currently working out with the Heat and could end up landing in the Eastern conference, according to ESPN.


The decision to include Lucas as early as possible came after Briante Weber became unfit to join the training camp. Another reason which sparked the move was Joshua Smith, who played for Heat in the summer league in Las Vegas, signed for the Houston Rockets.

Goran Dragic is considered to be the starting point-guard in the Miami Heat roster. Lucas would be competing with Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier to feature in the franchise’s final roster as back-up point guards.They also have Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson ready to go.

If Lucas is included, the Heat now have 19 players in their roster for the training camp.
