The Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls, Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets are interested in acquiring Tyler Herro from the Miami Heat, according to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports. The Heat will trade Herro if they land Damian Lillard, who has requested a trade from the Portland Trail Blazers to Miami.

“Keep an eye on Utah playing a potential role in a three- or four-team outcome of these Lillard conversations,” Fischer wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “If Portland ultimately does business with Miami, the Jazz — as well as the Bulls, Hornets and Nets — are considered a team interested in landing Tyler Herro from the Heat, sources said. And there are plenty of executives who’d rather take Miami’s best package, if the Heat are so willing, that could include Herro and Nikola Jovic to go along with Jaquez, Caleb Martin and more.”

The Jazz’s valuation of Herro was a key talking point around last year’s Summer League since Utah and Miami talked about a Donovan Mitchell trade. Mitchell wound up getting traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
