Could the ‘Poison Pill’ Make the Heat’s Tyler Herro Toxic on the NBA Trade Market

The last time a Miami Heat first-round pick was positioned for a major expansion from the NBA rookie scale, the move came within six weeks of the end of last season. This too came less than a month before the start of the next season.

Such was the unusual timing when Bam Adebayo maxed out with a five-year, $163 million extension in November 2020, with the previous season not finished until October 11 due to the pandemic and the next season starting on December 22.

The time crunch is hardly the same for Tyler Harrow this time around, with the NBA back in a more traditional schedule, with the season ending on June 16 and the next season not opening until October 19.

Still, the clock is ticking for the Heat, and for more than a decision to extend Herro to his October 18 deadline or allow him to become a banned free agent next summer.

Because the Heroes will move closer to an expansion of $25 million from their 2022–23 lock-in salary averaging $5.7 million, the Heat will effectively be unable to trade them until the 2023 offseason is extended once.

In the NBA’s pay-cap vernacular, the wildly varying pay from 2022-23 to ’23-24 would make a “poison pill” for any hero trade. In a deal between teams working above the salary limit, the streak-scoring guard would forgo nearly four times the amount of pay the Heat would be able to withdraw.

In short, the poison pill would make him as toxic as his once expanding business asset.

An extension to Hero would effectively remove him from any trade discussions about Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant or Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell.

In comparison, the first round of the heats was Justice Winslow, who was No 10 in 2015, before Adabio was taken to No. 14 in 2017. When it came time for Winslow’s expansion, an agreement was not reached until October 12, 2018, on the eve of that season.

Typically, apart from the most elite of draft picks, extensions stand as a waiting game, as will seemingly be the case for Herro, the No. 13 pick in 2019 from Kentucky.

Not out of disrespect.

But just because it’s business.

So far the extension has gone to 2019 Draft Class No. 1 pick Zion Williamson, the New Orleans Pelicans’ extension forward for $193 million over five seasons; Choose No. 2 Jay Morant, with the Memphis Grizzlies guard for the same amount as Williamson, with the prospect of his deal increasing to $231 million; 5 Darius Garland, as well as the Cleveland Cavaliers guard who received $193 million over five seasons.

But that doesn’t mean deal down draft orders can’t be fulfilled quickly. Last week, San Antonio Spurs guard Keldon Johnson, selected No. 29 in 2019, received a four-year, $80 million extension.

The mere fact that the Heroes are expandable could work against the Heat in trade talks with a rebuilding team like the Jazz, possibly preferring not to consider such an immediate outlay. Also reportedly Utah has debated the viability of the behavior for New York Knicks guard JR Barrett, the number 3 pick in 2019, who is also extendable.

But that also doesn’t mean that heat is slowing down the process.

Even when second-round pick Josh Richardson was extended from his rookie contract by the Heat in 2017, the four-year, $42 million extension didn’t appear until September 18, 2017.

While the Heroes are coming off a season when he was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year, he is also coming off a second consecutive year of playoff conflict, this time aggravated by a groin injury.

Based on Harrow’s conversations with coach Eric Spoelstra and Heat teammates at the NBA Las Vegas Summer League a week ago, there certainly doesn’t appear to be any bad blood or tension, even as his expansion clock ticks. Is.

5 again in 2003, the Heat have largely progressed beyond the extension game, dealing with Michael Beasley and Precious Achiuwa in first round selections before reaching their Heat extension window. Is.

In Hero’s extension comp, suggested by ESPN’s Bobby Marks, former Nets executives, Jaylen Brown (four years, $107 million), Mikel Bridges (four years, $90 million), and Joe Harris, Tim Hardaway Jr.’s four-year extensions Huh. , Eric Gordon and Evan Fournier are in the $75 million range.
