Most executives would rather have Jordan Poole over Tyler Herro?

- by

Poole busted out in the middle of his second season and rolled that momentum over enough into a third season that had some league insiders posing a popular behind-the-scenes question: Herro or Poole — who would you rather have moving forward? If you answered Poole, that once would’ve placed you in the ambitious minority. After this past season — when Poole led the NBA in 3s the final two months and then averaged 17 points per game on 50/39/91 shooting splits in the playoffs — you’d probably be in the majority. “Better creator, stronger going to the rim, should hold up more defensively if he just tries because he plays a little bit bigger,” one league executive said this week.

Five Degrees of Heat from Tuesday night’s preseason loss to the Timberwolves: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Heat roll out their big thing.
2. A brief Herro scare.
3. Second unit an eclectic mix.
4. A warning for the bench.
5. Playing it slow with Oladipo. – 10:26 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Told that Jaden McDaniels is doing just fine after knocking knees with Tyler Herro. Wolves had seen enough from him after that, no reason to put him back in. – 10:03 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo finish the night with 22 points a piece
Now I’m interested in the next layer:
Mixing in Jimmy Butler, and more of Kyle Lowry next to them
Good first game from them – 9:40 PM

Tyler Herro is in the game LOL – 9:06 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Jaden McDaniels shaken up after that last sequence guarding Tyler Herro. Herro was also shaken up and was on the floor afterward. McDaniels was a little gimpy as he went back to the bench. – 9:05 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Tyler Herro seems fine on the bench btw – 9:05 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Tyler Herro went down and was clearly in pain, but walked off and goes to the Heat bench. Seen smiling a little at the end of this video. Looked to have banged knees, but probably OK. pic.twitter.com/4tELTLBxKf9:05 PM

Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Herro with knee to knee contact and is helped off court, but appears to be moving well. – 9:04 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Oh no
Tyler Herro is not ok
At all – 9:03 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro opens second half for Heat at point guard, and looks quite comfortable in the role. Lowry’s night seeming over after 16:18 of action. – 9:02 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Tyler Herro has 18 points in 18 minutes – 9:02 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
No Kyle Lowry to start second half
Tyler Herro pull-up three to kick things off – 8:59 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat starters to open the second half: Strus, Martin, Herro, Yurtseven, Adebayo.
Looks like Lowry is done for the night. – 8:59 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Halftime: Timberwolves 64, Heat 52. Bam Adebayo with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting from the field and four rebounds. Tyler Herro with 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field, three rebounds and three assists. – 8:44 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Bam to Yurtseven in the corner for a 3 right before the half. Probably the most promising part of the first half for the Heat. That and Herro getting to the rim and Bam making 5 of 11 shots. – 8:44 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Tyler Herro has had three nice takes to the basket, including that one where he stayed on his line and finished through contact. – 8:35 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Timberwolves 26, Heat 24 at end of one. Adebayo seven points, Herro 6. – 8:12 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Herro and Bam trying to force stuff early, which makes sense in opening preseason game
They will settle down
Tyler showing off the finishing, and some good defensive possessions – 8:04 PM

Tyler Herro got his bag, so he opens by taking a charge. – 7:44 PM

Herro saw the DPOY incentive
Charge on first defensive possession – 7:44 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat opening with Adebayo, Yurtseven, Martin, Herro and Lowry, with Butler being given the night off. – 7:23 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Looks like the Heat’s starting lineup for the preseason opener will be Caleb Martin, Kyle Lowry, Tyler Herro, Omer Yurtseven and Bam Adebayo.
Jimmy Butler is out tonight for rest. – 7:23 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
So what might the starting lineup look like tonight?
Kyle Lowry
Tyler Herro
Max Strus
Caleb Martin
Bam Adebayo
That’s my guess – 7:17 PM

Five Degrees of Heat from Monday night’s intrasquad scrimmage: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. A lineup hint, perhaps.
2. Tyler Herro gets start after getting payday.
3. Everyone shooting 3s (including centers).
4. An event with meaning.
5. And now three exhibitions in four days. – 8:08 AM

More on this storyline

He can talk all day about Moody and Kuminga and Poole. He’s already taken a liking to DiVincenzo. “He’s really good. I have this funny thing with White players,” he said. “It’s like, ‘Yo, it ain’t too many of y’all that are really good.’ But he’s good. I’m like, ‘You’re one of the White guys that actually belong at a high level.’ It’s White guys that belong, but he’s really good.” -via The Athletic / October 4, 2022
Both sides believe a deal can realistically be reached in the next two weeks or an in-person meet-up would be unnecessary. Just about any Poole deal has the chance to become a bargain as he ages into his prime. -via The Athletic / October 4, 2022

Anthony Chiang: Tyler Herro down holding his right knee, but limps off without needing much help. He looks to be shaking it off after an apparent knee-to-knee collision with Jaden McDaniels. -via Twitter @Anthony_Chiang / October 4, 2022
Anil Gogna: Tyler Herro’s Incentives: • $1M if he wins MVP • $1M if he wins DPOY • $1M if he earns All-NBA 1st Team • $1M if he earns All-NBA 2nd Team • $500K if he earns All-NBA 3rd Team *Must play in 75% of Regular Season Games *Incentives are capped at a max of $2.5M per season -via Twitter @AnilGognaNBA / October 4, 2022
Ira Winderman: Tyler Herro extension viewed as both living in moment and a bridge to Heat’s future. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… “To be locked in for the next five years means a lot to me, because the goal is still to win a championship and we feel like we can do that.” -via Twitter @IraHeatBeat / October 4, 2022
