Report: Miami Heat wouldn’t include Tyler Herro in possible Victor Oladipo trade
- Updated: October 26, 2020
Given that Oladipo is currently under contract with the Pacers for one more season, the only way the Heat would be able to acquire him would be through a trade.
“It’s just hard to see Herro being involved unless they’re acquiring Giannis or Beal in a potential trade,” wrote Harper. “League sources believe a trade for Oladipo wouldn’t even consider including Herro on Miami’s end of it. ‘Riley hangs up.'”
This past season, Oladipo averaged 14.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game compared to Herro’s 13.5 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
During the playoffs, Herro increased those numbers to 16.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game while shooting 37.5 percent from three.
Oladipo was forced to miss the beginning of the season because of a ruptured quad tendon in his right knee, which he suffered during the 2018-19 season. He has struggled to regain the form that he showed off during the 2017-18 season when he averaged 23.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals per game.
Without Herro, a potential trade for Oladipo could include Kendrick Nunn, Kelly Olynyk, should he accept his player option for next season, and whoever the Heat draft in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft.
It remains to be seen whether that is a deal that would entice the Pacers enough to agree.
Only time will tell what type of deal the two teams agree to, should they decide to make one happen.
