Miami Heat signs ex-Marquette player Jamal Cain to Exhibit 10 contract

The Miami Heat’s scouting department is regarded as one of the best in the NBA.

The organization’s eye for talent has unearthed several gems that slipped through the cracks of the NBA draft. Duncan Robinson and Max Strus weren’t seen as surefire NBA players after college, yet they filled crucial roles on a team that reached the Eastern Conference finals last season.

So if the Heat like a player enough to warrant longer looks, that causes observers to sit up and notice. Such was the case when Miami signed former Marquette and Oakland University forward Jamal Cain to an Exhibit 10 contract earlier this month. That means the 6-foot-7 Cain will get an invitation to training camp in the fall, and there are financial incentives to stay with the team’s G League affiliate if he gets waived.
