Tyler Herro was a bucket again today in Vegas

What will Tyler Herro do next? That’s the question we’re all asking as the former Cat continues to burn up the nets in the NBA Summer League.

Today, Herro had a game-high 25 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and a steal in Miami’s 96-92 win over Orlando. Nineteen of those points came in the first half. He finished 7-15 from the floor, 2-6 from the outside, and 9-10 from the free-throw line (typical). Stop typing and get to the highlights, right?

Through three games in Vegas, Herro is averaging 21.3 points, which currently ranks in the top ten. And just think, there’s still a chance he could end up with another team before the season begins.

    Riley ain’t trading Bam or Bucket…mark that down. If a trade with OKC happens, he will dump the Dookie first…something like Winslow, Dragic, Derrick Jones, and a pick for Westbrook. Good young players are too valuable to the cap for a team like MIA, especially given they are going to be very short on picks moving forward.

    Seems that Herro is playing better against pro competition than he did against lesser competition in college. Same can be said to a lesser degree about Johnson. Makes me think that we didn’t get the most out of them while at Kentucky.

      Basketball players should always peak in college? Got it.

      Better spacing helps athletic guys and shooters.

    Less focus on D allows better shooting. Herro knee this last year, he and Calipari butted heads over it.
