Or you end up losing Herro for nothing. Miami currently is barely under the tax, if you add a sizable contract for Oladipo, Butler's new max money, not sure you're going to go that far in the tax to retain Herro. It's an issue you have to be thinking about now and with all the talk about it was possible Herro was moved this summer, I don't expect them to change from still looking for a trade with him.
Think of it this way, paying Butler, Lowry, Bam, Robinson, Oladipo and Herro, that's 5 big contracts for PG-SF and only ONE big contract for a PF or C, the roster has to be evened out and I've said I doubt Miami moves a guy who basically forced his way to Miami, so to me it comes down to Robinson or/and Herro being moved before next season. That possibly could change depending on the season Miami has or how vital either or both become this season.
I look at it along the lines of both Robinson and Herro potentially being packaged together. Say Beal forces his way here mid season and then those two contracts work together and we bring in that piece. Hopeful thinking I know but possible
Herro and Robinson is no where close to a Beal salary match. The two equal about 20 to Beals 34.5 Even in you add Tucker it still don’t work. Anybody hoping for a Herro for star pipe dream trade will still be dreaming. If Herro can be dealt for someone like Cole Anthony who has just as much potential as a Herro at a position of need and will be cost controlled longer you have to make that deal. Does anyone really envision Herro as the PG of the future here? I think Anthony under the tutelage of Lowry would thrive. I like Herro but i’d rather have a talented young PG to groom behind our soon to be 36 year old PG and have a committee approach at the backup two guard spot until Dipo is ready between Strus, Garrett, and Hampton if he comes along in trade.
