Tyler Herro has been around in the headlines for quite some time now. The young Miami Heat star was surrounded by trade rumors and was also seen as a potential trading chip to bring Damian Lillard to the Miami Heat. However, the trade fell off, and Lillard went on to join the Milwaukee Bucks.

The trade rumors surrounding Herro have not cleared up with him potentially seeing a trade in the near future. However, these rumors do not look to affect Herro in any way, he recently gave out confident statements expressing his desire to become ‘untouchable’ in the upcoming season.

Tyler Herro talks about his goal in NBA next season

Tyler Herro is a young talent playing for the Miami Heat, he has shown signs of great potential since his rookie season in the NBA. Herro had a respectable performance record in season 2022-23, he averaged 20.1 points, 4.2 assists, and 5.4 rebounds per game and had an average game time of 34.9 minutes per game. He is very efficient in playing the game to his strengths by using his elite shooting abilities and versatility to play both guard positions.

Tyler Herro backs himself up amid trade rumors

Tyler Herro is surely one of the best players with great potential, but he still has a major weakness that is easily exploitable in a high-paced sport like basketball. Herro is a good shooter and has great ball-handling skills, he is able to create his own shot and has that competitive fire inside him. But he falls short when it comes to defending, he is poor in his defending skills and is barely able to collect rebounds.

Herro backed himself up on his weaknesses to keep a strong front of his fans and followers. He reportedly said, “If you look around the league, I am right there with every young guy that they say is the next big thing or whatever it is. I know my value, I know l’m one of them and don’t need to say it. I will show you.”

Tyler claimed to be on par with all the rising stars in the NBA who are considered to be the next big names. He emphasized that he knows his worth and what he brings to the table in a game, and rather than talking more about it, he said that he’ll show it. It is true, to some extent, that Herro is on par with most of the young talents in the league when it comes to offensive capabilities, but defensively, he still falls short. Now, only time will tell if he has worked on his defense and can make a difference in games or not.
