The odds of the Utah Jazz being the eventual landing spot for Tyler Herro

If the reported interest from the team is indeed genuine, and with Danny Ainge in the front office (considering his previous admiration of Herro) it may be, there’s at least a fair chance that a deal could work. Considering the Jazz could easily make the money work by sending out Kelly Olynyk and Talen Horton-Tucker and that they have an extra first-round pick to send to Miami too, this seems like a deal that could somewhat seemingly come to fruition without much trouble.

From a theoretical standpoint, if the Heat and/or Blazers needed the Jazz to be included in this deal and Utah wanted to participate, it’s easy to see how it could come to fruition.

The big question is whether this front office believes they’re ready to add a player of the caliber of Herro at this point in the rebuild. Would Herro help this team make the jump it wants to take next season in the Western Conference? And, perhaps most importantly, would his presence on the roster make sense with Collin Sexton, Clarkson, Ochai Agbaji, and Keyonte George already in the backcourt?

In a vacuum, you take the gamble on the 23-year-old All-Star level talent at the cost of one first-round pick almost every time. But does it make sense for the Jazz with their current foundational pieces already in place?
