2. Tyler Herro

Tyler Herro has been dangled by the Heat every time they've shot their shot at a star. Herro is essentially always the key to the team getting a superstar, as he was reportedly discussed in a potential James Harden deal, several years ago.

Herro was also heavily discussed in Miami's talks with the Portland Trail Blazers last offseason, as the team sought to reel in Damian Lillard, who also wanted to go to South Beach. Talks fell through, in part, because Portland didn't want Herro.

Herro's salary almost guarantees he'll be included in any deal involving a marquee player, as his deal pays $30 million annually on average. Salary filler is obviously a much-needed ingredient in trades.

And although Herro will never be a primary scoring option, he's averaged 20 points or more for three consecutive seasons and is a reliable long-range shooter, despite not being the most efficient scorer.

To add color to Herro's sharpshooting ability, he's made 39.9 percent of his threes this season on 8.1 attempts. And it's not like this is an outlier, as he's averaging 38.5 percent from long-range through his five-year career.

And he's just 24-years-old.
