5 big names we'd love to see come to the Utah Jazz at the deadline

If the Utah Jazz got wild, one of these five players would be landing in Salt Lake City.

SG - Tyler Herro (Miami Heat)

We go from a defensive-focused player in Marcus Smart to an offensive one in Tyler Herro. Herro, who can play the point guard, shooting guard, or small forward position on a team depending on team and fit, would be the perfect third guy on the team next to Collin Sexton and Lauri Markkanen.

Ideally, you'd want Sexton, or Herro, to focus a bit more on passing, especially off of screens and pick and rolls, but the two could likely find rhythm with one another in the lineup. Especially if you keep someone like Kelly Olynyk and Kris Dunn, who are very good at involving their teammates in the offense.

Both men are averaging over four assists per game, but you'd like to see more out of one or the other if you're playing them together. Or both for that matter. Herro's shooting however is so good that you can't help imagine how he'd fit with Markkanen and Sexton in this offense. It's not as high-octane as others in the league but the Jazz could easily get up and down the court faster with someone like Herro to kick the ball to while in transition.

Herro nearly landed in Salt Lake this past summer, so why not finish the story?
