Tyler Herro is continuing to turn heads in the NBA Summer League.
The former Wildcat who was drafted by the Miami Heat finished with a 25 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists stat line yesterday in leading his team to another win.
The former Cat is also crediting his time at Kentucky for helping him prepare for the NBA.

It is summer league though, and you can’t take too much from it, but Herro is starting off his pro career well.
It will be interesting to see in the coming days if he will sign with the Heat or if he will continue to be floated as part of a potential trade for Russell Westbrook. It’s hard to imagine the Thunder dealing Westbrook to Miami without Herro being involved.
For now though, Herro is continuing to show the Heat the type of player he can be.
