Has Tyler Herro Grown to the Point Where he Can't be Traded?

It all started with a text to the text machine of Tobin and Leroy.

"Still shipping him away for Bradley Beal, don't get it twisted," read the message.

The texter was referring to Tyler Herro, who was excellent for the Miami Heat Tuesday, and for the entire series, especially late in the games hitting clutch 3s which propelled the Heat to a 4-1 series win over the Bucks and advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2014.

Tobin, who is known to craft up trade scenarios, was unsure about trading the 20-year-old rookie. Leroy called Tobin a "prisoner of the moment."

Tobin then referred to a quote from Pat Riley: "You truly do not get a test of a player until you see them in a playoff stage."

"This isn't Caron Butler," Tobin said referring to other young guys Pat Riley has traded in the past.

"You are looking forward to him coming into the game and that the Heat are depending on him to come into the game and that is the shocking part about this," Leroy replied.

What Tyler is at his age is "nuts" according to Tobin.

Leroy then brought up arguably the most important point: "I like Tyler Herro at $5-10 million as opposed to Bradley Beat at 40 (million)."
