Justise Winslow and the Heat agreed to a three-year, $39 million extension on Friday. Miami drafted Winslow with the 10th overall pick in the 2015 Draft out of Duke University. In 68 regular season games last year, Winslow averaged 7.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists while shooting 42.4 percent from the field, 38.0 percent from beyond the arc, and 63.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Dwyane Wade took Justise Winslow under his wing when Winslow entered the league in 2015. The two have a very close relationship. Winslow calls Wade his big brother for all the great advice the Miami legend has given him. This season will be Wade’s last year in the NBA, as he re-signed with the Heat on a one-year deal a week before training camp started.
With his new contract, Justise Winslow is going to have to take his game to the next level. Becoming a more reliable perimeter shooter is the most important thing Winslow has to work on at the moment. His biggest strengths are his driving ability and defense.
