The Miami Heat have an extremely potent combo-guard in Tyler Herro. Should they consider giving that up?

Since it’s the offseason, the rumor mill has started up with rumors of players going here and there.  That’s nothing new though.

It’s just the nature of the business. Since Tyler Herro had an amazing rookie year, full of big moments in the playoffs, it begs the question of if the Miami Heat should look to cash in their lottery ticket now to look for that whale, as Pat Riley calls them.

Personally, I am always looking towards a win-now move when your team is one move away from winning the championship and after this Finals run, Miami appears to be just one move away from winning the whole thing.

If Miami were to look to move Herro, who would it be for? For example, if Giannis Antetokounmpo comes out and says “Trade me to Miami”, then you have to make that deal with no question or thought about it.

Now, as I stated earlier, the rumor mill has begun with things like this from Tim MacMahon of ESPN, who reports that “James Harden and Russell Westbrook have begun to have concerns” about the future of the team.

No way you put Herro in a trade for Westbrook, but I might with Harden. Well, I would, at least, think about it.

I am not a Harden fan but it would help Miami win now and the goal is to win at all cost. If Miami were to move Herro for Harden, truthfully, I don’t know how I would feel.

All I know is that for Antetokounmpo, you have to trade Herro but for Harden, I would have to really think about it as well. For a guy such as Bradley Beal, who I really like by the way, I would pass there too if involving Herro.

Now, during last season, I would have put Herro in a Beal deal but this postseason showed me enough on Herro to change that. I think his ceiling, more or less, will be at Beal’s level or close to it.

To conclude, it would be Antetokounmpo or nothing for me if we were to move Herro. For what it’s worth though, I would still have to think long and hard about Harden though.
