This NBA season, the Miami Heat finished at the top of the Eastern Conference. They were able to take advantage of other teams’ injuries and consistent play from the opening weeks.

It might be surprising to see one of the conference’s leading teams looking to move one of its top players, but this has been the case for over a year now.

Tyler Herro was a prized prospect but has arrived in the league. He has the talent to score to get it done in all three levels, which could be appealing to a trade suitor if the Heat sought to pursue a superstar.

The Heat have been thought of as a potential blockbuster trade candidate in the offseason, or at least in the near future. With the time approaching to give Herro a contract extension, he could be a prime option to include a potential deal.

Each offseason, a few players end up being surprise candidates to switch teams. The playoffs could be a vital indicator of some names choosing it’s time for a change of scenery. If so, the Heat could capitalize.

If Herro is the one that is on the move, there will be plenty of teams interested in his services moving forward. Let’s look at three players that could be involved in a trade for Herro come to the offseason.

 

Donovan Mitchell

It is no secret that Donovan Mitchell grew up watching Dwyane Wade. You can tell by his game. Could the Utah Jazz star be in play for the Miami Heat in this trade?

If Herro is moved, he will likely lead a large package for another star. Miami has been aggressive in the past, which would be another big move.

Donovan Mitchell runs the show at the top of the offense but can also take over the shooting guard position. The Heat added Kyle Lowry last offseason. He averaged 13.4 points and 7.5 assists in his first season in South Beach.
