Miami Heat: Tyler Herro’s Floor In 2022-23 Is Being Viewed As A Trade Asset

Tyler Herro has been on the trade hot seat for several seasons. It is not necessarily because he is a bad player.

Floor: Becoming Expendable

Actually, the opposite is true. Herro is so skilled and so valuable, that he has high trade value.

If he does not want to be included in trade rumors, Herro needs to prove that he is irreplaceable. He does that by establishing a committed and accountable work ethic.

If Herro dedicates extra focus on hours in the gym and studying good defensive habits, he can become a player the Heat need to win. If he does none of those things and shows no signs of improvement, he will become a player who the Miami Heat feel they could win a championship without.

Right now, the Heat are targeting some All-Stars to add to their roster. Herro doesn’t necessarily need to become an All-Star to become untouchable (although, as previously mentioned, it would be an assured way to stay on the team).

All he needs to do is become a player who is so important in his role that the Heat have no replacement for him. Last season, we saw signs that Herro is headed in that direction.

The Heat often looked lost, offensively, in games where Herro did not play. However, that is not going to be enough for seasons to come.

It does not make a difference how many points Herro can score if the other team is going to target him on the other end and do the same thing. Herro needs to improve his defense or find some other way to become a major contributor.

If he does not, he will probably get traded. Fortunately, we have already seen Herro prove that he is motivated by his weaknesses from previous seasons and he is dedicated to improving his skills.

Tyler Herro took a big leap last season. It is very unlikely that he does not do the same thing again next season.
