Gabe Olaseni, Seth Tuttle sign with Miami Heat
Gabe Olaseni and Seth Tuttle weren't among the 60 players taken during Thursday's NBA Draft, but they'll get a crack at the league after all.
Olaseni told the Register on Friday that he had joined the Miami Heat as a free agent, and Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reported that Tuttle had done same.
The two players would most likely provide bench depth behind big-man starters Hassan Whiteside and Chris Bosh should they make the team.
The next stop is the NBA Summer League, where they'll get a chance to make an impression not only on the Heat but the other 31 teams. If they don't make it into an NBA training camp and onto a 15-man roster, they could attempt to play overseas or in the NBA Development League.
The 6-foot-10 Olaseni, who is from London, England, said Friday night that he had multiple free-agent offers, but that the Heat "showed the most interest, and I fit well with the guys they have this summer."
