Among the rumored prospects was Jimmy Butler moving from small forward to fill the spot. At the team’s media day on Monday, Butler addressed the issue.
While Butler said he could take over the role if needed, the Heat have no plans to make the switch.
“I don’t give a damn about that speculation,” said Butler, “I don’t play the four. I can play the four, yeah. If they really need me to play the four, I can yes. If they sure want to have a conversation about playing the four, I can yes. But I don’t play the four.” “.
The Heat enter training camp Tuesday in the Bahamas with Caleb Martin as the starting power forward.
Bam is ready for more shots
After last season ended, Miami Heat president Pat Riley said he wanted more from center Bam Adebayo on offensive end.
Riley stated that he felt Adebayo should attempt at least 15 shots in the match. At the team’s media day on Monday, Adebayo accepted the challenge.
“I want approximately 18 shots in a match,” said Adebayo. “I feel like we’re a much better team when we shoot basketball.”
Adebayo has often been criticized for playing too passively in attack. Last year, he averaged 19.1 points and 10.1 rebounds, but only hit 13 shots per game. Heat training camp opens Tuesday in the Bahamas.

Last year, Miami Heat guard Tyler Hero was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
While he would like to be in the starting lineup, he said he had no problem continuing to come off the bench. Herro spoke Monday at the team’s media day at FTX Arena.
“You know, I’m a team player,” said Hiro. “No matter what.” [coach Erik Spoelstra] And the organization wants me to do that.” “Whatever role fits me best, that’s what I’m going to do.”
