Herro’s future:

latest news at page 1:

    For Tyler Herro and the Miami Heat’s front office, the four-year, $130 millon extension for the fourth-year guard announced Sunday came down to salary-cap economics. To Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, it also came down to demographics. That balance, in the wake of agreement with Herro, left Spoelstra both confident about living in the moment as well as looking ahead, now that Bam Adebayo, 25, and Herro, 22, are locked into long-term deals. “I felt very similar about Tyler when we were able to extend Bam,” Spoelstra said, with the agreement with Adebayo reached in 2020. “The cool thing about it is yes, they are the future, but they also are the present and that’s what makes this group unique. We have a lot of different age groups.” To some, the issue with the Herro extension is that, because of salary-cap rules, it effectively removes the winner of last year’s NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award from the trade table, leaving the Heat with limited avenues to upgrade alongside 36-year-old point guard Kyle Lowry and 33-year-old shooting guard Jimmy Butler....
    Getty Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro reacts during a bout with the Detroit Pistons. With the NBA just days away from tipping off the 2022-23 season, teams are putting the finishing touches on their rosters. As the Miami Heat prepare to start the year against the Chicago Bulls at home on October 19, Pat Riley and his front office are tying up any loose ends as they are hopeful to advance even further in this year’s playoffs. On October 2, ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski announced that sixth man Tyler Herro and the Heat agreed to a 4-year, $130 million max contract extension. “Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro — the 2022 NBA Sixth Man of the Year — has agreed to a four-year, $130 million contract extension, his agents Jeff Schwartz and Mike Lindeman of Excel Sports told ESPN on Sunday,” Wojnarowski writes per ESPN. “After averaging 20.7 points a season ago, Herro, 22, lands an annual salary worth over $30 million for his rookie scale extension ahead of the Oct. 18 deadline for members of the 2019 NBA...
    In July, the concern was premature. In August, urgency was misplaced. Even earlier this month, patience remained prudent. But now, a month before NBA teams play games for real, it is not hyperbole to say the clock is ticking on Tyler Herro and the Miami Heat when it comes to a potential rookie-scale extension for the 2019 first-round pick. The deadline is Oct. 17. The impact transcends salary. And, to a degree, the playing field has changed since the extension window opened July 1. Foremost, the least impactful element of the decision process from the Heat perspective is the degree to which Herro merits the extension, which assuredly, based on the rest of the NBA market this offseason, would exceed an average of $25 million per season, an extension that would begin in 2023-24. With Herro the reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year, such is the market price. He will get at least that money, be it in the coming month or next summer when he otherwise would stand as a restricted free agent. Instead, the primary component weighing...
    Q: The question for the Heat going forward is whether Bam Adebayo can be a point forward like Draymond Green, Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James. While Erik Spoelstra’s small ball has been effective, Bam is undersized against the Embiids and Jokics in today’s game, and with Spo’s defense, the Heat are left undersized when Bam switches out front without a rim protector/rebounder behind him. I feel Pat Riley envisioned Bam as a power forward playing alongside Hassan Whiteside when he drafted him. Maybe it’s time for Spo to revisit Bam’s role. – Michael, Boca Raton. A: Except, and I know this goes against much of Erik Spoelstra’s position-less ethos, I believe much of Bam Adebayo’s advantage in quickness is mitigated when he goes against opposing power forwards. Where the Heat have thrived is when Bam has been able to at least draw opposing big men to the elbow with his screening and playmaking. Cast him as a power forward, and much of the advantage he has built in recent years is neutralized. Beyond that, it often is just as much...
    Getty Bam Adebayo #13 and Jimmy Butler #22 of the Miami Heat Constant trade rumors have swirled around the Miami Heat as they seek another star to add to their core. The team has been involved in pitches to try to bring Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets and the Utah Jazz All-Star Donovan Mitchell to South Beach. Miami’s trade packages have varied from involving Bam Adebayo or Tyler Herro as centerpieces in trade discussions. So far, the Heat have been hesitant and haven’t included Adebayo in trade proposals, but one NBA insider speculated that that might change after recent reports about the Nets negotiations.  In a conversation with an Eastern Conference executive Sean Deveney was told that the Nets have teams where they want them in trade discussions which would be including Bam in proposals.  “The Nets have gotten them to the point they were trying to get them to, which is, ‘OK, do we include Bam (Adebayo) in one of these packages?’ The young players, Tyler Herro, the picks they have that is not going to get Durant....
    Getty Images P.J. Tucker and Udonis Haslem of the Miami Heat. For nearly two decades, Udonis Haslem has been a pillar for the Miami Heat organization. But after an exit in the Eastern Conference Finals, the 41-year-old big man is going to take some time to think about his future with the franchise. Haslem took the Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Celtics hard and disclosed during his exit interview on Tuesday that he is considering retirement — which he was the last few offseasons. “I’m not recovered from the loss to Boston, so as usual, I’ll take my time,” Haslem told reporters. “I want to be playing right now. I didn’t get what I want. I want to still be playing. So I’m not getting what I want at this moment. It’s time to take a mental break and decide after that.” Make no mistake — Haslem isn’t sticking around in Miami for his on-court contributions. He averaged just 2.5 points and less than two rebounds per game this year. But where Haslem is most valuable is...
    Two days after his team was eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra was back at FTX Arena on Tuesday attempting to sum up the season. Some of his thoughts: — He said the entirety of the season, “I feel like I still need some time to decompress.” — But, he noted, “It was just a really memorable and gratifying season.” — He said, “That will go down as a great season even though we didn’t accomplish the goal we set out for ourselves.” — And, “We became even closer because of all the adversity.” — Of growth from within the roster, he said, “I think what we’ve proven, it doesn’t matter what your age is.” — He added, “I think Jimmy [Butler] is an example of that. In his 30s, he’s become a much better player.” — Of the team’s playoff drop-off in 3-point shooting, he said, “Our team proved we could win in a lot of different ways.” — But he said, the...
    Getty Miami Heat sharpshooter Duncan Robinson became the fastest player to record 500 three-pointers in 2021. Miami Heat sharpshooter Duncan Robinson addressed his NBA future earlier this week as he gears up for free agency. The 27-year-old could garner as much as $24 million per year on the open market, but he’s a restricted free agent so Miami can match any offer. The Heat own his Bird rights so it’s just a matter of how much the franchise values arguably the best three-point shooter in the league. Robinson became the fastest player in NBA history to hit 500 career triples back in May while shooting 42.3% from beyond the arc in three seasons. He’s also made great strides to improve his all-around game, specifically at the defensive end of the floor. Is that enough to earn him a lifetime beach pass in South Beach? That’s for Heat president Pat Riley to decide. But Robinson made no bones about his desire to stay put during a recent chat on the Long Shot Podcast. He has “loved his time in...
    Getty Miami Heat big men Udonis Haslem and Meyers Leonard exchange a pre-game fist bump. Meyers Leonard’s second season in South Beach hasn’t followed the Disney fairy-tale promised to him in the NBA bubble. The Miami Heat big man saw action in just three games this year before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery on Feb. 2. Worse yet, Leonard’s name had been popping up in trade rumors as a possible expiring contract to move: the soon-to-be 29-year-old (Feb. 27) is due $9.4 million in base salary. However, it would behoove Miami to keep him on the roster at least through the trade deadline so they can use the disabled player exception — $4.7 million of his $9.4 million salary — on a possible free-agent buyout candidate (looking at you, Blake Griffin). Contracts aside, Leonard wants to remain in Miami and hopes to get an extension at some point. The former first-round pick — 11th overall in 2011 — told reporters on Monday that he loves the Miami Heat culture and everything the organization stands for. The 7-footer and his...

    Breonna Taylor protests, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, This Is America: 5 things to know Thursday Americas most successful employee-owned companies Where Tyler Herros run ranks among greatest rookie postseasons ever, and what it says about his future What do Tyler Herro and Magic Johnson have in common? They are the only two rookies in NBA history to score at least 35 points, grab at least five rebounds and dish out three or more assists in one of the two final rounds of the playoffs. Herro's Game 4 explosion gave him the record for points by a rookie in the conference finals, passing two-time All-Star Andrew Toney. Two spots down on that list? Johnson's eternal rival Larry Bird, who didn't reach the 37 points Herro scored in any playoff game until his fourth season.  © Provided by CBS Sports Sep 23, 2020; Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA; Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro (14) dribbles against Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (right) during the first half of game four of the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2020 NBA Playoffs at AdventHealth...
