    Default Jovic sounds frustrated with the Heat.

    After a great offseason showing out in FIBA hes getting no PT soÖ.







    Though some are saying itís an issue with the translation and he didnít come off so salty in his native tongue

    Apparently one issue is Spo sees him as a center but he feels he’s a natural forward. Like a tweener even.

    Spo has a hell of a track record and Heat fans are split on if he’s just bad or Spo is wrong.

    I dont think he comes off as salty even in that translation. Just disagrees with the decision.

    Miami’s formula is pretty simple. Bam in the middle, Butler making plays, shooters around him. Herro gets some freedom to create as well but they have a pretty straightforward formula. And theyve made 2 finals in 4 years with it. So I understand not changing course to give an unproven guy a chance to establish himself.

    Its one of the reasons I expected theyd be more active making a trade for a guy like Lillard. They have assets in Jovic, Highsmith, even guys like Martin and Herro. It feels like they need one more move to get over the top, and they have the pieces to swing it. But maybe theres also a salary component as mentioned on another thread. I dunno

    In this case he had to do whatever Spo wants to get on the floor so he's a center until he finds a new team. Google says he's 200 pounds so O can understand not wanting to play center but the coach is the coach.

    This is Spo a year ago talking about his struggles:

    "He was a ball-handling, passing three man in Europe," Spoelstra said. "He never played the four or five, so I think that was part of his struggle in summer league."


    He knows he’s a small forward but I guess they don’t see it.

    Is he not athletic enough to guard nba wings?

    I can’t speak with any authority on him.

    Portland didn't like what they offered. Probably tried to low ball them because Dame said that was the only place he'd go

    Damn, hes put on some bulk since I last saw a highlight mix of his.

    Lookin like a Serbain Sengun out there with that 7 foot horse build.

    But with his shooting he could def play the wing and I could actually see him dominating there.

    most bigs can't guard wings so I'd guess it would be a weakness. 27% from 3. Rebounding not good. Looks like he might be a decent passer? What does he offer other than size and potential right now?

    his numbers say Gleague. Not sure why this is even a story. The guys has done little to warrant even talking about right now. His Gleague numbers last year were pretty awful except the ass/TO. Why not prove you can play there first?

    Wouldn’t you say FIBA World Cup is a higher level then G league? I Think he’s just advocating to be given the freedom to play to his strength, but I don’t know if the heat are the type to respond well to taking your complaints to the media.

    Might be higher. The Gleague is closer to the NBA in style and rules and I assume he'd be playing the Heat system with their farm club. They play even smaller in the Gleague so rather he thinks he's a center or not he should be expected to have his way if he's any kind of prospect. Looks like he can pass the ball and is only 20 so he obviously has some upside

    Simone is Italy's best player in FIBA. Fringe rotation player on a crappy NBA team

    I've watched all of the games he's played in. He doesn't fit Miami's offensive style. He would thrive in a faster pace uptempo offense.

    He is not a Center, nor a PF despite being 6'10". He's very clearly a slasher type SF, the problem is he's not as good of an offensive or defensive player than Butler, Caleb Martin, or Jaquez Jr. In the current offense, he's mostly a corner shooter which is a waste of his skills.

    Miami should definitely trade him for a position of need. I'd be open to LAC for Bones. They are thin at the forward spot and he can maybe find some play time there. Miami needs a backup/3rd string PG and the Miami system might be good for Hyland.
