Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Posts double-double in Monday's preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk had 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks in 30 minutes during Monday's 109-106 win against the Hornets.

Olynyk struggled in a starting role on Saturday versus the Magic, but he bounced back with a solid performance in this his second shot at occupying that spot alongside Hassan Whiteside. While their fit on defense is not ideal, especially against modern offenses, Olynyk provides much more reliable outside shooting than last year's primary starter at power forward (James Johnson).

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Starting vs. Magic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk is starting at power forward Saturday against the Magic, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Heat want to see if two bigs -- Olynyk and Hassan Whiteside -- work effectively against Orlando's undersized power forward, Aaron Gordon, so Olynyk will get the start as James Johnson opens the game on the bench.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Shoots poorly, plays good defense Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk collected seven points (3-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 25 minutes during Thursday's 107-88 loss to the Nets.

Olynyk has had ups and downs this preseason through two games with his new team, posting a combined 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks but seven turnovers across 48 total minutes. While his passing and defense are encouraging, he'll have to keep his turnovers down to be effective. His workload is worth monitoring throughout the preseason, as he's capable of playing both power forward and center, so can spend time with or without Hassan Whiteside on the floor. That said, the Heat are relatively deep at power forward, so coach Erik Spoelstra has a variety of options to deploy at the position if Olynyk struggles on any given night.

Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Agrees to join Heat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk has reached an agreement to join the Heat on a four-year, $50-plus million contract, which has a player option on the fourth year, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

After the Celtics signed Gordon Hayward to a four-year $128 million deal, the team renounced the rights to Olynyk in order to free up cap space. Last season, Olynyk averaged 9.0 points (51.2 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three), 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 20.5 minutes per game. Depending on how the Heat's roster ends up shaking out, he could crack almost 30 minutes per night, but could also end up regulated to a sixth man role. Overall, it seems likely he'll see more time on the floor in Miami than he did in Boston, probably boosting his fantasy value.

Kelly Olynyk: Set to become unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olynyk had his rights renounced by the Celtics and he's now an unrestricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

With the Celtics signing Gordon Hayward to hefty four-year, $128 million deal, they'll have to free up some cap space, which means they'll be unable to retain Olynyk. An athletic seven-footer that can shoot the ball from deep, Olynyk will see plenty of interest on the open free agent market, so he should be able to command a significant upgrade in pay compared to the $3 million he made last season. Olynyk is coming off a 2016-17 campaign with the Celtics where he averaged 9.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 20.5 minutes per contest.
