heatForward: 6’8, 215 lbs; 2nd year, Florida State

NBA Role: (raw) two-way forward UnderDOG

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Miami’s successfully used the D-League to find another future keeper – this time, Florida State’s Okaro White fits the bill; an undrafted, hybrid forward, White began his pro career in Greece – after a couple impressive stints in the D-League, Okaro’s now searching for long-term real estate in South Beach; a key component of MIA’s (surprising) midseason turnaround a year ago (2016-17), Okaro fits right into Coach Spo’s defensive culture – solid foot speed, raw ability to match up v. multiple positions, help & recover; good shooter: quick release, confident spotting up from corners & elbows; body type is suitable for today’s game (slender, athletic) but adding 10-12 lbs could help him better defend larger 3s & 4s; instant contributor under Coach Spo

Signature Shot: TBD.
