Herro should be allowed to just cook in the second unit this year. Just give him the ball and let him do his thing. He has an all round offensive game that is intriguing.

More likely Spo puts him in the corner for 15 minutes then pulls him everytime he turns the ball over.

He has a Dirk-like repertoire of moves. I like his game. How tall is he? Also, will he be able to muscle his way through stronger/taller players?

Bucket Bros... let’s get it!

Can't post links from my phone at the moment, but here's a snippet from The Stepien:

Matthew Hurt
Team: USA
Born: 4/24/2000, 19.2
Forward, 6’9”
High School Junior at John Marshall Senior

Outstanding three-point shooter. Shoots an easy ball with a repeatable stroke and a super quick trigger. Doesn’t even need to bring the ball down to shoot after catching a pass. Shot 60% from long range (12-for-20 overall).
Energy forward that hustles and makes plays all over the court. Fights for rebounds, gets in the passing lanes, dives for loose balls. Good at crashing the offensive glass despite his lack of length. 2.2 offensive rebounds per game at the tournament.
Really effective as a decision maker in transition. Super fluid with the ball in his hands for his size. Can push it in transition with good speed after grabbing the defensive rebound. Great outlet passer, can find teammates across the court.
Knows how to make the simple reads and execute the right basketball plays once he has the ball in his hands. Plays outside-in as a passer, gets entry passes over the top of the defense. Super efficient: 12 assists to only 2 turnovers at the tournament.
Showed potential as a shot creator for himself. He has good touch against contact when he catches the ball inside. Has the ability to hit turnaround jumpers a few feet away from the basket. Can pull up from mid-range after driving.
Good defensive footwork on the perimeter that allowed him to stay in front of most perimeter players. Plays with effort on the inside when covering bigs. Led the USA team with 1.5 blocks per game.
Lacks elite length, has a 6’9” wingspan and a 8’11” standing reach. Might be a limitation in the NBA in terms of finishing and defending on the interior.
Quick for his role as a stretch-four, but might lack the level of quickness and lateral mobility to drive by elite defenders and to cover quicker perimeter players on defense.
Overall: Matthew Hurt proved why he is considered a top 5 prospect in the 2020 draft class by most outlets, showing a great combination of shooting touch, passing ability and effort on defense and rebounding. His below-average length might prove to be a limitation to his ceiling as a pro, but he showed a really high-floor as a sharpshooting forward who can also become an average-to-plus passer and perimeter defender for his size.

Good for him. College athletics for many of the best players is absolutely a waste. I know the college traditionalists will say the athletes get paid in the form of free housing, food, and education, but you know what else will pay for that? A multi-million dollar contract with a shoe company.

I hope other athletes follow his footsteps and take getting paid over getting their college paid.

He's a decent coach overall, But I really hate his timidness when it comes to aggressively developing young players offensives repertoires.

Bam should've been shooting this past year, and Winslow should've been on the ball 2 years ago.

Yeah, it feels like Spo is really good for some low ceiling players, scrubs at maximizing their potential, but not the best coach for high-ceiling players because he don't give them much freedom and opportunity to play loose and develop on their own mistakes.

I don’t know if I would blame timidness as the sole reason for the lack or offensive development of young players. I think indecision is a factor as well.

Spo just overloads players with multiple roles and it confuses the player. Just look at how many roles Winslows has been in.

Spo needs to make his mind up and stop experimenting different roles for players during games. Even one game in the standings can make the difference for the Heat. Especially on previous teams with the current set of players.

If pre-draft mocks of the last few years are any indication, 2022 draft should have a high bust volatility from about 6-12... But should be interesting tho

https://sports.yahoo.com/why-the-2022-nba-draft-will-be-generationally-loaded-022747270.html

Hopeless in Oklahoma City? Anxious in Cleveland? Impatient in Charlotte?

To those geographically forlorn and financially restricted NBA franchises, hope is coming. In the wake of the major-market magnetism that unfolded in the NBA’s summer of 2019, the brightest beacon for those jilted NBA franchises comes from the 2022 NBA draft.

The ballyhooed “Double Draft” should arrive in 2022 because of a confluence of high-end players from two talented high school classes. That’s expected to be the first season when the NBA rule change goes into effect that will pare down the NBA age minimum from 19 to 18. That means all of the country’s best one-and-done players from 2021 and prep-to-pro prospects from 2022 will combine for a blockbuster draft that, in theory, will have double the high-end talent.

“I think it’s going to be a monumental draft class, potentially a generational class,” Rivals.com recruiting analyst Corey Evans said. “The infiltration of the one-and-done class from 2021 and the potential of the straight-to-the-pros group makes it a tsunami of talent, like two draft classes in one.”

NBA franchises are already positioning themselves for the chance to cash in on all the talent. The sweetener for the 2022 draft is the allure of expected No. 1 overall pick Emoni Bates. He’s a rising sophomore in Michigan who is already considered the country’s best NBA prospect, regardless of age. Expect Bates to become the face of the newest prep-to-pro age, just like Kevin Garnett was a generation ago. “From a talent perspective,” Evans said, “Emoni is one of the best freshmen the industry has seen in the last decade.”

As a devils advocate to the Spo offensive development points-

Winslow has developed very nicely under him. He is a very good playmaker and has developed his shooting well.

Spo stretched Rich about to his offensive ceiling.

Kelly O has more playmaking duties and is better offensively here than at Boston I’d say. Not by a lot though.

Dion was his most complete player under Spo in 2017

Lol. A free dorm room and cafeteria food. The education is useless if you're there 1 year. All with the added bonus of a year of injury risk before you ever see a dime.

RJ's one year salary from the Breakers alone could easily pay for a 4 year college education, and then some.

Go get that shoe deal.

2020 draft looking pretty good! Looking forward to a great NCAA season too!
