The Miami Heat haven’t been able to land a big name on the trade market, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t happen. While Kevin Durant looks to be staying in Brooklyn for, at least, a little longer, there are other guys out there that might be moved.

One of those guys is Donovan Mitchell. With no real preference about staying or leaving Utah, though with a preferred list of teams, he might be on the move if a team is willing to meet Utah’s lofty asking price.

When it comes to the Miami Heat, that price would surely include Tyler Herro if a deal is to be done. That leads to a really important question though about it all.

When it comes to a potential deal that sends Mitchell to the Heat, would you rather have him and Bam Adebayo or Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo for the next 10 seasons?

Also. They, among others, not interested in Donovan Mitchell?. light

Kenneth’s Take 

It’s not a really complicated matter for me. When you look at what Tyler Herro has accomplished in his short time in the league, you already know he can be special with and for the Miami Heat.

Yes, Mitchell has already shown to be special, but could he still be that way in a Miami Heat uniform? Donovan Mitchell’s greatness lies in his scoring ability and the way he gets that done is by dominating the rock.

If he can’t have ball dominance, can you maximize him? You’d hope so, especially with what it would cost to land him and because of his salary.

Neither are great defenders, but Herro’s size advantage gives you a little more hope there for him. Herro can be just as good as Mitchell, is bigger, can play on or off the ball without having to dominate it, and would effectively be easier to sign and work around because he’s a homegrown Heat guy based on how NBA contracts work.

Finally, we already know that he and Bam work together. That’s what it’s all about.
