The Miami Heat's 2021-22 campaign did not exactly end in an ideal fashion. After dominating the regular season for pretty much the entire year, Jimmy Butler and Co. found themselves falling short after failing to get past the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Right now, it is clear that Miami is doing everything it can to bounce back in 2022-23.

The Heat have been heavily linked to a possible blockbuster deal involving Brooklyn Nets want-away superstar Kevin Durant. Miami, however, is keeping its options open. Apart from KD, the Heat are reportedly also in the market for Utah Jazz stud Donovan Mitchell. While Mitchell won't command a package as ridiculous as that of Durant, Miami will still need to give up more than a few assets if they hope to bring the 25-year-old to South Beach.

According to reports, a package centered around Sixth Man of the Year winner Tyler Herro could be the price the Heat must pay for Mitchell. Apparently, the Heat already had a previous offer rejected by Utah. It's not up to Miami to go back to the negotiating table with a better offer (h/t Barry Jackson and Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald):

Any package for Mitchell almost assuredly would need to include Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson, plus at least two future first-round picks. Another player — even a minimum deal such as Haywood Highsmith’s — likely would need to be included to facilitate a two-team Heat/Jazz Mitchell deal from a salary cap standpoint.

Heat insider Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel also reports that according to an anonymous Western Conference executive, Tyler Herro is looking like a likely inclusion in a potential Donovan Mitchell package:

Herro has been a revelation for the Heat, and he is coming off his best career as a pro. Miami considers him to be an important part of their core, but at this point, it's not impossible to think that they could be willing to cash in on him now.
