Starter: Dwyane Wade
Wade has plenty of doubters right now, with many believing his age (32) and knee problems will prevent him from remaining a top player.
However, there's plenty of reason to believe Wade will get the last laugh here. Wade's poor NBA Finals performance versus the San Antonio Spurs masked the fact that he was outstanding during the regular season, averaging 19.0 points (54.5 percent shooting from the field), 4.5 rebounds and 4.7 assists.
Wade should see the ball a lot more this season and easily top 20 points per game.
Backup: Reggie Williams
It really says something about how thin the Heat are at shooting guard when we're listing Reggie Williams, who played just three games this past season, as the Heat's backup 2.
But unless Miami makes another move, Williams should make the team and see the court to start the season.
Williams can shoot the ball (37.1 3P%), which makes him an offensive asset on this team. However, he's really going to need to play much better on the defensive end than he has in the past if he is to remain in the Heat's rotation for the entire year.
Backup No. 2: Tyler Johnson
An undrafted guard out of Fresno State, Johnson was excellent during summer league play.
In 11 games, Johnson averaged 12.2 points (54.8 percent shooting from the field and 46.7 percent shooting from outside) 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
Johnson's youth (22), shooting ability (43.2 3P% during his senior year) and athleticism make him an intriguing option for Miami.
However, with his contract not guaranteed, he is far from a lock to make this roster.
