The Miami Heat might be looking to move on from Tyler Herro this offseason, but why?

When you hear rumors like these, the first thing you think is that they must consider him a bad player or a regressing player. Neither of those are true though.

When you look at most of the numbers, he improved in almost every category, though with a slight dip in efficiency. Even still though, with the improvement, the slight efficiency slip wasn’t anything of major note.

If you were comparing him to other players in a similar situation, experience, team, fit, and among other things, then he would still be among the best. However, in this situation, he’s losing or viewed as depreciating because he’s being compared to himself.

Though the numbers are better, the trajectory seems to be going the other way based on his rookie season. While he improved his numbers, because he didn’t take the type of leap that his rookie year indicated that he could, should, or would, you have some viewing that as a sophomore slump.

Again, only if you compare Tyler Herro to Tyler Herro, would you look at this past season as a failure or regression. Though he wasn’t as electric, timely, or big in clutch moments as he was last season, to be fair, who on the Miami Heat was?

Now, if you are going to say that his personal life and certain things surrounding that are questionable and, at times, too much to take, that can be bought but is also a completely different story. From a basketball perspective, he didn’t suddenly just become such a bad player that you have to move him.

So, what’s really happening then? Here are the running thoughts.
