The new-look Miami Heat, with Dwyane Wade gone to Chicago and league leading shot blocker Hassan Whiteside serving as the new front man, is heading to paradise for training camp in two weeks.
The team announced Tuesday it will hold its five-day camp beginning Sept. 27 at The Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in Nassau, Bahamas, marking the second time in the last four years and first since 2013 the Heat has gone there for its preseason workouts. Last year Miami held camp at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
The Heat will conduct two-a-day practice sessions in the Grand Ballroom at the Atlantis Conference Center before returning to Miami on Saturday afternoon.
Miami plays the first of eight preseason games Oct. 4 at Washington and opens the regular season Oct. 26 at Orlando.
