The Miami Heat have a sharpshooting combo guard capable of running the point. Should they trade him for another version of that… or anyone at all?

There are only a few trades I would include Tyler Herro in because I think he has established himself as one of the flashiest trade pieces in the league this season. What that means is that a lot of teams are interested in his upside.

I think Herro can be an All-Star one day but I would suspect his lack of defensive prowess takes away from his potential to be a face-of-the-franchise star.

I, like most Heat fans, love Herro but I recognize that for a team trying to win now over the next few years, acquiring a star is going to cost a steep price. A lot of fans like to try and throw out Kelly Olynyk/Kendrick Nunn/Andre Iguodala deals for stars but that’s simply unlikely.

The Heat have reported interest in pretty much every star that could possibly be rumored out of their current situation but there are only a few I’d include Herro in a deal for right now. Bradley Beal is the main name that comes to mind and his price would command Herro, regardless.

However, I think the Washington Wizards are close to the playoffs and trading Beal now doesn’t make much sense to them unless they plan to bottom out this season. There’s been rumored interest in Victor Oladipo, but I definitely wouldn’t include Herro in those talks.

Oladipo is too big of a question mark going forward to command that kind of market. His injury history is way too volatile for me.

In all, Herro is on a cheap rookie contract and is going to score at least 14 points a game next season, so it wouldn’t make sense to move him unless the Heat get back a star under contract for a while.

Also, it would have to be someone that moves the needle. For me, it wouldn’t happen, either way, until next summer at least.
