“I have amazing vets,” Herro said. “Really, I’ve learned a lot. Just each vet really shines like different light on me. Jimmy’s obviously like a big brother to me. But he’s brought me in, just really just showed me the way how to be a max player. That’s what he is. Obviously, I want to be like him. He just shows me how to do that. “Goran [Dragic], obviously what he’s doing. There’s so much that they’ve taught me, like how to deal with the 82-game season, it’s long. Really just, without my vets I don’t think I’d be able to have the success I’ve had.”
All-Star Heat teammate Jimmy Butler took two of the five hats before the season was suspended, wearing one around the locker room after a game in early March. Other Heat teammates, especially Bam Adebayo, (maybe jokingly) weren’t too happy that Butler got a hat before they did. “I didn’t know this was going to be such a big issue,” Dragic said with a smile during his chat with Jackson. “Everybody wants to have this hat right now. We still need to make those hats. Of course, the coronavirus and everything stopped it. But as soon as this is over, I promise everybody is going to get their hats. Maybe, we’re even going to start selling online and try to raise money to donate.”
Dragic’s value in the locker room is highly regarded as well as is his influence on the Heat’s young core. Even on a one-year deal, it would be difficult for the Heat to offer Dragic a contract close to the $19.2 million he is making this season (if that’s what it takes to keep him) and still have enough to pursue other roster upgrades. They could try perhaps a two-year deal to reduce the cap hit and not cut too much into 2021 space.
