Justise Winslow is excited to join the Miami Heat, a team that can quickly return to the playoffs after dropping to the lottery in 14-15.
“I’m looking forward to going out there and winning championships,” he said. “That’s what this organization is about. We’ve got the tools, the talent to do it. Getting it all together with the core they have, finding ways to complement that and really impact the game. The Heat expect to win every year. That’s the kind of culture that coach [team president Pat] Riley has built and I’m happy to be there.”
Winslow plans to become a rotation player on a deep Heat team.
“I just feel like I can impact the game in so many ways,” he said. “I’ll be there out on the court; I don’t know how many minutes. I don’t know if I’m starting or coming off the bench. Regardless, when I’m out there I’ll affect the game. Regardless of what team I was going to be on, I was going to be aggressive, play my game, and try to win. It definitely helps that the team I’m on is not in a rebuilding stage.”
