Tyler Herro became eligible for a contract extension with the Miami Heat this offseason, but there have been more rumors of a trade than a new contract.
“I mean, every summer, that’s just what it is,” Herro said. “I mean ever since I’ve been here, my name has been in rumors. So rumors, they don’t bother me. Whether I’m on the Heat or somewhere else, I’m getting ready for the season.”
Herro will earn $5.7 million this upcoming season in the final year of his rookie deal, is eligible this offseason to sign a contract extension worth as much as $188 million over five seasons with a first-year salary (2023-24) of $32.5 million.
“I mean, I know as much as you know,” Herro said when asked where negotiations stand surrounding a potential extension with the Heat. “I’m just waiting on my turn and we’ll see what happens. There’s a deadline, but I’m going to let my agent take care of that and see what happens.”
