There was a time, 24 short hours ago, when the Heat were viewed as contenders to trade for then-Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard. Miami guard Tyler Herro, the 2022 Sixth Man of the Year, was speculated to be part of a potential return package.
"In all seriousness… as a kid from Milwaukee, I’m grabbing me a Dame jersey," Herro said.

Herro was born in Milwaukee and attended high school in Greenfield, Wis., a commuter town 11 miles outside the Cream City. He was originally committed to Wisconsin before flipping to Kentucky on Nov. 14, 2017.
Lillard's Bucks and Herro's Miami team will square off mere days into the 2024 season, on Oct. 30 in Milwaukee.
