According to an article by Sid Ventura of ESPN5, Tim Cone is set to join the Miami Heat as an assistant for the 2022 Summer League in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.

"I've been invited to work with the Heat from the Summer League team, which starts in San Francisco and goes through Vegas,"

"The bottom line is I'll be an assistant coach to their head coach, who's going to be Malik Allen. He will coach the Summer League team.

"This is very humbling for me and I'm willing to go in there and do whatever it takes." - Cone told One Sports.

The 2022 NBA Summer League will be played from July 2 to 17, 2022 in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Salt Lake City.

As per @paodelrosario, Coach Tim will miss the Converge, Terrafirma, TNT, and Meralco games, but will be back for the final two games of the elims for Barangay Ginebra. Assistant coach Richard del Rosario will take over in his absence.
"I think it's no secret that I'm a good friend of Erik Spoelstra and it's a relationship that we've developed over maybe 10, 12, 15 years,"

"It actually all started with Jimmy Alapag. He became a guest coach with the Sacramento Kings in the Summer League, and then after the Summer League became an assistant coach with their G-League team."

"So one day I was speaking to Erik Spoelstra, and Erik said to me, 'Hey, I heard Jimmy's here doing something with the Sacramento Kings' and I said 'yeah'. And he said, 'Why aren't you doing that with us?' And I go, 'Well, I've never been invited'.

"But I told him I would love to do something like that one day, just to immerse myself, be a fly on the wall, go get copy, whatever it takes" - Coach Tim told One Sports.
