1. Tyler Herro

Herro is the holdup in the Damian Lillard trade. The Blazers want multiple draft picks and young talent for arguably the franchise's GOAT. Miami put a 23-year-old who has scored 20 points per game for two straight years in the package, but Herro does not fit in Portland with Scoot Henderson, Shaedon Sharpe, and Anfernee Simons on the roster. The Heat need a third team to take Herro for this deal to work.

The 6’5 wing is a career 38.3 percent 3-point shooter that can flat-out get buckets. The Heat made their run to the NBA Finals without him after Herro suffered a hand injury in the team’s first postseason contest. There is worry about how his production translates to the playoffs, and his defense is subpar, at best, but not many 23-year-olds can score 20 every night.

The Spurs could swoop in as the third team and get Tyler Herro for a discount. Gregg Popovich helped mold Tony Parker into a Hall of Famer and could make Herro his next project. The 23-year-old has immense potential but needs to improve his playmaking and defense to reach his ceiling.

The San Antonio Spurs must upgrade their shooting around Victor Wembanyama, but they are in no rush. Expect them to wait to see how the team performs before making any moves. Improvements are coming, but the Spurs want Wemby to get comfortable first. The 7’3 big man is must watch, so please stay tuned and enjoy the ride.
