   2017 NBA Manifesto

Justin Hamilton
C, 7’0, 260lbs, 27 years old, 3 years of experience

A mediocre rebounder and worse defender who all too often just gave up the paint, Hamilton at least somewhat it earned it back with his skilled offensive game. If he is to take three-pointers at this volume going forward - and, really, he should - then more than 30.4% of them will have to go in. But that is plenty foreseeable. So too would be a trade for a second round pick (or, if attached to some big offloaded salary, perhaps a first). A player worth having, but more a player worth trading.

Player Plan: Second and final season at $3 million. Hamilton would have value on a more competitive team and his style of play is not readily available on the free agency market, thus there is probably a second round pick floating out there for him somewhere.

   2014 Summer League rosters - Miami

Justin Hamilton - Hamilton is only one of two Heat players under contract at the moment, along with Norris Cole. The one time Heat draft pick has already been waived by the team once, but is back for now and signed to a unguaranteed contract for next season. In 38 D-League games with Larry Drew's Skyforce, Hamilton averaged 19.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 35.4 minutes per game, making his living mostly with a righty hook but also in shooting 39.7% from three on a limited and increasing number of attempts. He has stretch five potential and weak side shot blocker potential, and if he can toughen up on the offensive glass, Hamilton can be a rare type of 7 footer in the NBA.

   These unsigned big men are ready to help (or hurt) your team

Justin Hamilton - 2012 Heat draft pick Hamilton joined the team for training camp with scant little hope of making the roster, got cut, and is now in the D-League. Thus far for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, he is averaging 15.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks, an intriguing combination of size, face-up offense and some post play. He will however require further development to his body.
