Tyler Herro has been working on his defense, hoping it will help increase his playing time.
Herro said, "We’ve been working hard these last couple of weeks on defense, not just offense". Herro has gained some momentum since his strong Summer League performance. He currently has some deep-league appeal as he is likely to get some minutes off the bench.

The Heat have balked at the Thunder's ask for two of Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo and Justise Winslow in trade talks for Russell Westbrook.
While Miami is reportedly at the top of Westbrook's list of destinations, the Heat would obviously prefer to keep some of their young talent since they may be bidding against themselves at this point. The Heat just inked Herro to his rookie deal, which means he cannot be traded for 30 days, and they also must send out more than Westbrook's immense salary because they're hard-capped. We'll see who blinks first, or if another team can provide OKC a more compelling package.

Fresh off signing his first NBA contract, Tyler Herro cooled off a bit in Wednesday's 90-87 loss, putting up 15 points, three assists and three 3-pointers.
Herro has done as much to increase his stature through Summer League play as any first-round pick. So much so that he is being reported as one of two players the Heat would prefer to not include in talks for Russell Westbrook. He could enter the season with a decent chunk of playing time off the bench, potentially giving him deep-league appeal.

The Heat have officially signed first-round pick Tyler Herro.
Herro has been balling in Summer League, and there was some thought that the Heat's delay in signing him to a deal had to do with the trade restrictions that come with the formal transaction. The Heat now have to wait 30 days before they can trade Herro, which takes him off the table in any deal that needs to happen soon. Miami is a popular name in the Russell Westbrook hunt, but unless the Thunder want to wait it looks like Herro won't be part of the package.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Heat would like to keep Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro out of any potential deals for Russell Westbrook.
That's far from surprising, as teams tend to want to keep their good, affordable players. The Heat are also hard-capped by the sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler and would need to send out more money than they absorb in any deal. That means that the Thunder, who have gotten themselves closer to the tax with their other offseason moves, may not feel as much pressure to take on Miami's bad deals without something good in return. It's worth noting that the Heat have yet to sign Herro, as doing so would mean he can't be traded for 30 days. We're hoping that Adebayo remains in Miami because he's looking at a great setup with early-middle round potential.

Tyler Herro continued to dominate the Summer League with 25 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and five treys in 33 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.
Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra were in attendance for this game as Herro once again showed off his skills against Summer League competition. Herro is looking like a rotation piece for the Heat next season and will make for an interesting pickup if he falls into more minutes as the season wears on.

Tyler Herro did it all on Sunday in a 93-81 win over the Jazz with 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
He shot 7-of-18 from the field and 1-of-8 from beyond the arc, but he was able to contribute in other ways. Herro is showing that he is more than just a shooter as the Heat have forced him to play some point guard in these games. Herro will likely be a nice fit in the Heat rotation for the 2019-20 season.

Tyler Herro scored 23 points on 5-for-13 shooting with four assists, three steals, two rebounds and four threes in Friday night's win over China.
The steady diet of shots continued for Herro, whose aggressive game also enabled him to go a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line. It seems the Heat will continue heavily featuring Herro in their Summer League gameplan.

Tyler Herro put up 20 points on 7-of-21 shooting (2-for-11 from deep) in Wednesday's California Classic victory.
Herro certainly wasn't afraid of getting his shots up today, and there's no downside to letting him shoulder the load as a primary scorer in these summer session contests. Consider this the inevitable regression after he started 5-for-6 in Monday's opener.

Tyler Herro put up 18 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and five 3-pointers in Monday's California Classic Summer League opener.
Herro shot 6-of-15 overall and 5-of-10 from deep, though it's worth noting he started off 5-of-6 from behind the arc and this game was out of hand extremely quickly. Miami's first-rounder can certainly shoot with the best of them, and that's a nice projectable skill for dynasty players to target. Depending on what happens with the rest of the Heat's summer, Herro might emerge with a small role in year one.

The Heat selected Kentucky SG Tyler Herro with the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Herro enters the league with a reputation for shooting and plenty of foundation to build off of offensively. Getting separation with his first step and questions about his high-end shooting ability are the things folks are watching out for, and then defensively he has question marks for both lateral quickness and execution. Still, while there are questions about high-end shooting, he rocked a 93.5 percent mark from the foul line and that's a great indicator he will be just fine at the NBA level. Playing at Kentucky there could be some wiggle in his production from one league to the next, and defensive stat issues along with deployment questions in Miami's log-jammed rotations keep him out of standard league discussion at this time.
