  1. NBA teams rarely put guys on the summer league team onto the regular season roster (except of course for the guys already under contract), but I wonder if Jermaine has better than normal chances of making the Heat, just because of the simple fact that the Heat might need bodies who won't cost too much to fill out the roster.
