The New Orleans Pelicans ended the Miami Heat’s Summer League on Saturday, but not before Tyler Herro made a name for himself.
In four games played, Herro averaged 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. He shot 42 percent from the field and 33 percent on three-pointers. No wonder the Heat didn’t want to trade him.

Heat Summer League coach Eric Glass had nothing but great things to stay about the rookie.
Herro “can give us whatever we need,” Glass said. “If we need a guy that can handle, get us into offense, if we need him to be pick-and-roll, if we need him to come off catch-and-shoots, he’s shown he can do it all, and we feel comfortable in any of those spots.
“He’s got incredible confidence,” Glass said. “We’re always going to encourage guys, but that’s more on him as a player, be able to stay with it, not get too high or too low. That’s a skill nowadays, too. Some guys miss shots or have foul trouble and they just get in the tank and they can’t build themselves out of that. For him to have that at 19 is very impressive.”
Herro is going to make a run for ROY. That’s a bucket.
