Pittman has to love the situation he was drafted into.
Taken early in the second round, Pittman has found himself on the recently formed super team in Miami with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.
This team will be good for years to come, and many of their big men are up there in age. If Pittman continues to grow as a player, he could be looking at a starting center position for this team down the road, with multiple titles along the way.
As for this year, it’s tough to say how much time he’ll get with the addition of several veteran big men to the roster. In my opinion, none of them are good enough players at this stage in their careers to completely lock down the position.
Combine that with potential health issues and Pittman could end up with some solid minutes for the most exciting team in the league this year.
