Tyler Herro, Miami Heat, NBA Trade Rumors

They hope to win when an NBA team makes a major win-now trade. That’s the purpose of a win-now deal. So, when the results are disappointing, a team may return to the drawing board. 

Look at the Miami Heat. They’ve been struggling since acquiring Terry Rozier. This deal was supposed to take them to the next level. Instead, it feels like it’s caused the Heat to regress. 

By contrast, the New York Knicks have enjoyed their time with OG Anunoby. So far, that’s looked like a strong trade for this team. Still, the Knicks could justify making another big move to continue improving.

Could they acquire Tyler Herro from the Heat?

Soon enough, we’ll see teams making win-now trades in rapid succession. The trade deadline is quickly approaching. For the most part, the best teams in the NBA will use that opportunity to try to improve. 

Typically, teams wait until the deadline. They’ll hold out until the last minute to get the best deal they can. This year has been an exception. A handful of significant deals transpire well before the final hour.

Each of these teams has already made significant moves. With that in mind, either could decide that it’s better to try to stabilize the roster that they currently have. Too many moves can disrupt a team’s chemistry.

Should the Heat make another move? 

Why The Miami Heat Do The Deal 

There may be legitimate concerns about the fit between Rozier and Herro. They’re both ball-dominant guards who look to score first. The Heat likely assumed that with Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler making plays, it wouldn’t matter. 

So far, it’s looked like it may matter. If the Heat feel the same way, they could look to shop Herro. At the same time, this organization won’t punt on the season. If they trade Herro, they’ll want to make a move that they think will keep them competitive.

This deal could do that. DiVincenzo is a much stronger defender than Herro, and he’s a reliable floor spacer as well. Still, the Heat are being compensated for moving the best player in this trade with an expiring contract and an unprotected first.

Should the Knicks give those assets up for Herro? 

Why The New York Knicks Do The Deal 

DiVincenzo is a better defender than Herro. He’s a hybrid guard/wing. The Knicks have a surplus of strong defensive wings. Anunoby is one of the best in the league. Josh Hart is outstanding on that end of the floor, and Precious Achiuwa can also switch across positions. 

On the other hand, the Knicks are missing Immanuel Quickley. They sent him to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Anunoby. So, it would make sense to flip one of their quality defensive wings for a scoring guard.

Herro would be among the best sixth men in the NBA. He can play alongside Jalen Brunson or without him. This is a player who can give the Knicks a much-needed offensive punch – even if they’ve already made a huge trade.
