One of the Miami Heat’s key performers will remain under contract with the squad for at least two more seasons.
On Wednesday, it was announced that they had exercised their team option on standout guard Tyler Herro.

Herro had an impressive rookie season in 2019-20. He put up 13.5 points in 27.4 minutes a game while shooting 38.9 percent from beyond the arc.
Later in the regular season, and especially in the playoffs, the University of Kentucky product started to flash his other skills, especially his ball-handling and passing abilities.
For all his efforts, Herro ended up being named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
If one or more of them take another step forward, a repeat trip to the NBA Finals this summer could be in the books for Miami.
