The Heat selected Herro with the 13th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. He played a huge role in the Heat’s advance to the 2020 NBA Finals during the coronavirus-affected season. In 2021-22, Herro was named Sixth Man of the Year after averaging 20.7 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists in 66 games. He only started 10 of those 66 appearances and averaged a career-high 32.6 minutes per game.
