As one of the more active teams so far this offseason, the Utah Jazz has begun to lay the framework of what they hope is a lasting foundation for this new build. So far this offseason, the Jazz has re-signed Jordan Clarkson, acquired John Collins via trade from the Atlanta Hawks, and drafted three quality players (Keyonte George, Taylor Hendricks, and Brice Sensabaugh) that have the high-end potential of being future starters in the NBA.

Despite already a solid offseason, the Jazz could still have another move or two up their sleeves.

The Utah Jazz have been linked to Tyler Herro

According to a recent report, the Jazz has been named as another team that could help facilitate a Damian Lillard trade by being a possible suitor for Tyler Herro. In the event that Lillard is traded to the Miami Heat, the Portland Trail Blazers would require the recruitment of a third or fourth team to take on Herro. The Jazz appear to be at least open to the idea of acquiring Herro as a third team in that possible scenario.

The cost of joining the deal would likely be a future first-round pick. Considering the Jazz has nine first-round draft picks in the next four seasons, that would seemingly be a small price to pay for a talented young player with All-Star potential.

The question is, should the Jazz, with all the young talent that they’ve already accumulated be open to Herro? In an attempt to answer that question, we explore some pros and cons of acquiring Herro from the Heat.
