2. Tyler Herro
In a few years, Tyler Herro could be the best heat-check player in the entire league. He has shown a sense of confidence and swagger that is rare from rookies.
The Miami Heat have benefitted greatly from having Herro as a spark plug off their bench. He is averaging 17.0 points per 36 minutes and shooting close to 40 percent on over five 3-point attempts a game.
Herro is a flamethrower from deep and shows no fear in the clutch. There isn’t a shot on the floor that he doesn’t feel comfortable taking and his overwhelming confidence often leads to hot streaks on offense.
It isn’t difficult to see how Herro would fit with the Warriors. Giving him a green light to shoot 3-pointers within the Dubs offense is a recipe for success. In time, he could lead the next generation of splash brothers.
Herro is on a rookie contract and won’t have the option to hit free agency until the 2023-24 season. This gives plenty of time for the Warriors to work on clearing cap space to sign the rising star.
