Richardson to make Heat debut in NBA summer leagues


Former Tennessee and new Miami Heat guard Josh Richardson will play in both Orlando’s Pro Summer League and Las Vegas’ NBA Summer League.

Miami released its summer league roster on Wednesday.

Richardson’s summer league play will start in Orlando on Saturday, where the Heat will play five games in seven days. Then, the Heat’s summer league team heads to Las Vegas for at least five more games.

How well Richardson plays could determine if he gets a contract.

If you’re interested in catching some games, be on the lookout for specific broadcasts from NBA TV. Fans can also watch every game live on
