Though he’s a guard by trade, people around the Heat expect Josh Richardson to emerge as a serious challenger to Justise Winslow and Rodney McGruder for the starting small forward job.

Winslow, who is back from shoulder surgery, will not simply be gifted a starting job, the Heat has said.

And Miami ideally prefers McGruder as a bench player, though he will have a fair chance to win the starting job.
