Heat's KZ Okpala: Still not playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okpala (coach's decision) signed a multi-year contract with the Heat on Sunday.

The terms of Okpala's deal aren't known, but Miami's decision to sign the second-round pick out of Stanford suggests he'll likely begin his career in the NBA rather than in the G League or overseas. The signing comes despite Okpala having yet to make his summer-league debut, as he'll remain unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Magic in Las Vegas, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. The forward isn't dealing with an injury, but the Heat are instead eager to have him spend more time getting familiar with the club's core schemes in an observational role before thrusting him into game action. It's unclear if he'll get the chance to make his summer debut before the Vegas league officially ends July 15.

Heat's KZ Okpala: Selected by Heat in second round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okpala was selected with the 32nd overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Okpala is coming off a stellar sophomore season at Stanford where he averaged 16.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while shooting a much-improved 36.8 percent from behind the arc. The lengthy swingman is a slasher and made a habit of getting to the free throw line last season. In Miami, Okpala joins the likes of Josh Richardson, Justise Winslow and Derrick Jones Jr. on the wing and will likely be hard-pressed to find playing time over the first part of his rookie season.
