Tyler Herro Already at the Forefront of NBA Trade Rumors

Tyler Herro has been absolutely scorching the NBA Summer League after being taken 13th overall by the Miami Heat. He is averaging 19.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.3 APG and 27.8 minutes leading the Heat to a 5-0 Summer League start.

Herro’s tireless scoring and defensive motor has made him a hot commodity. And now being one of the last lottery picks having yet to sign a contract has made him the target of potential trades. According to 247Sports’ The Cats Pause, Oklahoma City is expected to make a play for him. After Paul George left for the Clippers to team up with Kawhi, Russell Westbrook has once again been left alone in OKC. Russ may even be on his way out with the Heat as one of the leaders to land him via sign and trade deal.

WARNING: WOJ BOMB.

“A team like Miami who doesn’t have salary cap space, if they’re going to improve themselves, they’re going to have to do what they did at the beginning of free agency, a sign and trade. Miami’s a team that continues to try and add talent. They really wanted DeMarcus Cousins but I think the Heat are a team to watch,” Wojnarowski said. “Russell Westbrook at 30-years-old is still a high-level player but it is a lot of money and he’s going to take up a great part of your salary cap so it’ll be interesting to see how that market develops and where the pockets of interest are for him.”

Having wanted Tyler Herro since before the Draft, he will be included in any deal that sends Westbrook to Miami. Also, since he hasn’t signed a contract yet, he will not be subject to the 30 day waiting period.

If Herro does end up in Oklahoma City, this would give them 5 former Wildcats. They really are becoming the new Phoenix in terms of collecting Calipari’s finest.
