We know the story by now. After an encouraging run in the NBA Bubble, Tyler Herro lost his starting job early in his sophomore season, dealt with nagging injuries and didn’t make the leap Heat fans hoped he would. Though his trade value has sunk, Herro is still on a cost-controlled rookie contract. Teams could still be interested in him.
Now the question becomes who the Heat could get in return for trading Herro. (And before anyone asks, no, they couldn’t have gotten Harden for Herro last year.) Some have speculated Collin Sexton, the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard who averaged 24.2 points per game and shot 37 percent from 3-point range this past season. As an aside, Sexton actually replaced Herro in the Rising Stars Game during 2020 All-Star weekend.
Big chance Tyler Herro gets moved this offseason— HEAT NATION (@Zachppp) June 25, 2021
Herro for Sexton ?
Herro as a headliner for CJ?
Give me some realistic Herro trades the Heat could do this off-season ?
Cleveland selected Sexton with the eighth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He only has one year left on his contract. The question becomes whether he’s worth what it would cost to extend him.
The Heat could also easily come away dissatisfied with the current offers for Herro and hope that he raises his value early next season.
