Blazers not interested in Tyler Herro

ClutchPoints: “Portland doesn’t have interest in bringing in Tyler Herro. [Trail Blazers are] already built around young guards… Their focus is elsewhere on getting maximum value for [Damian Lillard].” — @wojespn (via @SportsCenter )

Blazers want to move Herro to a third team if they trade Lillard to the Heat…9:53 AM

Per Woj, the Blazers do NOT have interest in Tyler Herro
If that’s the case, it’s nearly impossible to envision a scenario where Miami trades for Dame unless another team gives them a ton for Herro (which is highly unlikely) and they flip that to POR AM

What’s the point for the Heat if there’s no Damian Lillard? Latest “Ask Ira” at… Plus: The status of the Herro relationship; the loss of Oladipo. – 8:05 AM

Better for #Nets to be patient than chase Damian Lillard-Tyler Herro trade… via @nypostsports – 9:20 PM

“Damian Lillard (with or without Nurkic) for Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and two first-round picks would be the worst trade ever.”

Heat Get: Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic
Blazers Get: Tyler Herro, Kyle Lowry, Jaime Jaquez, Nikola Jovic, 2028 1st, 2029 swap, 2030 1st
Considering the significant price of recent superstars dealt, this return for Portland would go down as one of the worst trades in NBA history. – 2:21 PM

From earlier: NYK is hard-capped after Donte DiVincenzo signing; Obi Toppin trade leaves NYK open to valid criticism, caps frustrating 3-year stint in NY for 2020 lottery pick; Nets among teams contacted as 3rd team to acquire Tyler Herro in Dame trade:…10:56 AM

Not really getting involved in Twitter arguing over hypothetical Dame trades
on what planet is the Ben Simmons experience a better asset than Tyler Herro? – 11:05 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Waiting game shows toll on Herro, Lillard; Heat’s Robinson, Bouyea embrace new deals.… Lots of moving parts for Heat amid little of consequence actually moving. – 4:29 PM

Apropos of nothing, here are the top-ranked Heat/Blazers players in our Trade Value list:
Damian Lillard (14)
Scoot Henderson (28)
Shaedon Sharpe (59)
Anfernee Simons (76)
Jimmy Butler (19)
Bam Adebayo (25)
Tyler Herro (52)
Caleb Martin (90)…3:07 PM

Tyler Herro makes sense for the Nets IF they can acquire him at a discounted rate.
One of their non-premium picks (2025 PHX) packaged with Royce/DFS/Dinwiddie should be the price for helping Miami land Dame IMO. – 1:09 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
NYK is hard-capped after DiVincenzo signing; Obi Toppin trade leaves NYK open to valid criticism but it can be hard to accurately judge moves in early July (see: Jalen Brunson deal); Nets among teams contacted as 3rd team to acquire T. Herro in Dame trade:…11:17 AM

Heat depth chart:
C: Bam Adebayo, Thomas Bryant, Orlando Robinson
PF: Kevin Love, Haywood Highsmith, Nikola Jovic
SF: Jimmy Butler, Caleb Martin
SG: Josh Richardson, Duncan Robinson, Jaime Jaquez
PG: Tyler Herro, Kyle Lowry
(2 open spots)
(2-way: Jamal Cain, J. Bouyea, Dru Smith) – 9:30 AM
Albert Nahmad @AlbertNahmad
In this unlikely scenario, the Heat would theoretically send the Blazers these youngsters + up to 3 Heat firsts… And, as part of it, Portland could prearrange a re-trade of Herro for more firsts (or, though more difficult, execute it as a 4-team trade).…8:20 AM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Bobby Marks proposes a 3-team deal between the Nets, Trail Blazers and Heat.
MIA: Damian Lillard
BKN: Tyler Herro
POR: Ben Simmons, 5 firsts, pick swap PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat roster at moment: Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, Caleb Martin, Kevin Love, Kyle Lowry, Duncan Robinson, Josh Richardson, Thomas Bryant, Haywood Highsmith, Nikola Jovic, Jaime Jaquez, plus 3 open minimums. Also, Jamal Cain, Orlando Robinson on 2-ways (1 more allowed) – 2:10 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
As I reported last week (and the solid Chris Haynes noted just now), Heat would prefer to keep Caleb Martin out of a Lillard deal. Heat offer expected to be built around Herro. And Haynes said, as we’ve noted, that Blazers might want Heat to take Jurkic. – 1:51 PM
Bill Simmons @BillSimmons
I can’t come up with a Dame/Miami trade that makes sense for Portland unless they’re doing a solid for Dame.
Herro + Lowry’s expiring + Jacquez + Jovic for Dame + Nurkic’s $ and then every 1st Miami can trade… which is basically 2028/2030 firsts plus 2-3 swaps? Yikes. – 1:13 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
A few teams I could see Tyler Herro getting re-routed to in a Damian Lillard trade:
– Nets. Could use a young, upside guard as a sidekick to Mikal Bridges.
– Jazz. Have a ton in the front court, but don’t really have a long-term point guard yet.
– Spurs. Same logic as Jazz. – 1:11 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I’d love to see Brooklyn get in on a Miami-Portland Dame trade and swipe Tyler Herro. – 1:06 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
While Herro/Robinson (and picks) would satisfy cap rules, there is a package that would work with no Lowry or Robinson and just Herro and these other assets, if Portland insists:…12:57 PM

Miami really about to get one of the best guards of this generation for Tyler Herro and two firsts – 12:38 PM

More on this storyline

Evan Sidery: The Trail Blazers are “not impressed” with the Heat’s trade offer for Damian Lillard, which could lead to a deal elsewhere now, per @wojespn: – While Damian Lillard prefers Miami, Portland needs “maximum value” in any trade. – Miami needs at minimum a third team to take on Tyler Herro’s contract. Blazers have no interest in Herro. – Portland will now take their time to find better offers elsewhere to receive the best package for Lillard. -via Twitter @esidery / July 4, 2023
For any trade with Miami, Portland would have the goal of moving Herro to a third team, league sources told Yahoo Sports. It seems the challenge for the Blazers with Herro is as much about Portland’s surplus of young combo guards, featuring lottery picks Scoot Henderson and Shaedon Sharpe, plus the high-scoring Anfernee Simons, as it is about Herro’s long-term money. -via Yahoo! Sports / July 4, 2023
