A trade proposal between the Orlando Magic and the Miami Heat is making the news headlines, which involves the Heat’s Tyler Herro.
Zach Buckley, a popular NBA news report from the Bleacher Report, has proposed this trade deal between the Magic and the Heat to trade Herro. Here is the possible trade proposal!
The Tyler Herro Trade Proposal
- The Orlando Magic will receive Tyler Herro.
- The Miami Heat will receive Jonathan Isaac, Jalen Suggs, the 2025 First Round Draft Pick (Protected by lottery), and the 2025 First-Round Draft Pick (Protected by Top 5 teams, via Denver Nuggets).
Buckley wrote about Herro’s potential trade proposal in his latest trade column:
“Herro would provide a big lift on both fronts while also taking some attention away from Wagner and Banchero with his live-dribble passing and movement shooting.”
“Herro’s combination of age (23), ability and big-stage experience might normally make him off-limits, but Miami might need to move him to bring back the assets needed to seal a Damian Lillard deal.”
Is Tyler Herro Leaving Miami for Damian Lillard’s Big Move?
The trade speculation of Herro sparked on the internet after he removed “Miami Heat guard” from his Twitter bio, as he was involved in Damian Lillard’s trade deal.
Lillard wants to join the Miami Heat. As a result, Herro could be traded by the Heat to the Trail Blazers to acquire Lillard from them. It would have been an ideal deal. However, the Portland Trail Blazers are looking for the best deal for their star player.

The Kentucky Wildcats product has averaged around 20.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists in the last season for the Miami Heat.
