Tyler Herro Trade Rumors: Odds of Former Kentucky Wildcats’ NBA Future

Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

One of the NBA’s most versatile guards is on the cusp of moving on to a new team, as sixth year veteran out of Kentucky Tyler Herro may be moved before the completion of his four-year, $120 million contract with the Miami Heat. Herro managed to average 20.8 points per game last season across Kentucky sports betting, but only played in 42 games for the club, ranking as the lowest total in a single full season since he entered the league during the 2019-20 season.  

Now, it’s up to Pat Riley to determine whether the 24-year-old Wisconsin native is in the team’s cards long term, with the 2022 NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner possibly being on the trade block this offseason.  

With that in mind, BetKentucky.com broke down some hypothetical odds on which NBA team Herro could be traded to this offseason, though the odds still favor him returning to Miami when the season tips off this fall.

Where Will Herro Go Next?

Right now, our top contender to land Herro on the trade market is the Chicago Bulls, who come in at +800 to land the former Wildcat backcourt mainstay in 2024. The Bulls currently have the 15th highest salary cap luxury tax bill in the NBA ($166.079 million), meaning they’re technically above the luxury tax threshold of $165 million, but $4.7 million below the hard cap.  

Other teams that could land Herro this offseason include the upstart Utah Jazz (+1000), New Orleans Pelicans (+1750), Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets (+2500 each).  

There’s still a chance that Herro stays in South Beach (or lands with another team entirely), with -200 odds of either outcome happening this offseason, as the young guard that’s already amassed 12.5 win shares in 284 NBA games awaits his next destination this summer.  

The Heat currently at bet365 Kentucky are +4000 to win next summer's NBA Finals.
