After making his first public appearance as a member of the Heat, Miami's first-round pick Norris Cole now goes to work at camp.

The Heat introduced first-round pick Norris Cole to the media on Monday. Now, the Heat can watch him play against other NBA hopefuls.

Pat Riley announced on Saturday that the Heat will be hosting a three-day camp this week working out a fleet of free agents. By rule, teams are prohibited from working out free agents who played in the league last season. Naturally, the names of those attending the camp aren't household names, unless you happen to live under the roof of a Heat writer.

So who's attending the camp? Ira Winderman of South Florida Sun Sentinel has the roll call for this week's workout. Eddy Curry, recipient of a $60 million contract from the Chicago Bulls, "headlines" the list along with Heat's first-round pick Cole.

If all goes to plan, the Heat should have two or three roster spots for free agents this offseason. Will one of them be plucked from this week's camp?

Here's the list of free agents coming to Biscayne Bay, along with some info about each player (I had to do some serious digging for a couple of these):
