On Tuesday, Miami Heat first-round pick Precious Achiuwa revealed that guard Tyler Herro reached out to him right after the 2020 NBA Draft with an invite to work out together.

Herro, Miami’s first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, is already showing his desire to get to know and help his new teammate.

“Me and Tyler connected the night right after I got drafted,” Achiuwa said.

Achiuwa explained that Herro reached out to him and told him as soon as he got to Miami they’d workout together.

The Heat selected Achiuwa with the No. 20 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. He should fit in as another athletic big in Miami’s packed frontcourt.

Along with Bam Adebayo and Herro, Achiuwa has a chance to be a part of the solid young core that Miami has established around star Jimmy Butler.
