Lowe appears to be confident that the Heat would jump at the opportunity to acquire Harden, even if it meant parting ways with a talented youngster like Herro.
Zach Lowe doesn’t believe the reports that Tyler Herro is 'off the table' for James Harden
"No. Just no. If this ever becomes a thing, the Heat are having a hands on deck meeting to discuss it. Players like James Harden do not ever become available."

It’s certainly a rational belief. No matter how high Herro’s perceived ceiling is, chances are good he’ll never be quite as potent an offensive player as Harden is.
Moreover, Harden is without a doubt the player a team would want if it was looking to win now. Considering the Heat advanced to the NBA Finals last season, the window to get a title is clearly wide open.
For Heat fans, it would be sad to bid farewell to a talented player like Herro. That’s especially true because he has endeared himself to the city of Miami and seems to love being a part of the Heat organization.
However, basketball is a business in the NBA. Without a doubt, the smart business decision would be to acquire Harden at almost any cost.
