   2014 Summer League rosters - Miami

Trey McKinney-Jones - In the D-League last season with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, McKinney-Jones poured in numbers as solid as solid can be. In 32.2 minutes per contest, he averaged 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals to only 1.5 turnovers, shooting 46.7% from the floor and 35.3% from three. McKinney-Jones is a good athlete with a strong mid-range game and projectable if not entirely cemented yet three point stroke, who defends well, plays within his limitations, makes few mistakes and loves to run. Role players play roles.

   Why NBA Teams Sign Players They Don’t Want

The vast majority of players signed for training camp are signed to contracts without any guaranteed compensation on them.

This, certainly, is no surprise, as it has long been known that most players signed for training camp are not expected to make the team. A few players have fairly nominal guaranteed portions – for example, Dee Bost received $50,000 from Portland, Dewayne Dedmon $25,000 from Golden State, and Trent Lockett $35,000 from Sacramento. Most, however, do not. Teams are not involved in bidding wars for the Trey McKinney-Jones and Carlos Morais types, and thus there is no incentive to give any guaranteed money away.

   Unsigned guards looking to make mid-season NBA impact

Trey McKinney-Jones - Jones was an unlikely training camp signing for the Bucks. He is now in the D-League, averaging 17.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game for Fort Wayne, yet he was signed after not playing in summer league and averaging only 9.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per game as a senior for Miami. However, he has all the makings of a good wing role player - athletic, with good size, tough defensively and with a decent jump shot. Sometimes it might be better to make role players out of role players rather than reassigning one time stars.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
