Report: Celtics were ‘very much enamored’ with Tyler Herro, whom Heat took one pick before Boston
The Celtics – holding the Kings’ first-round pick – lost a tiebreaker with the Hornets and Heat in last year’s draft. Charlotte picked No. 12, Miami No. 13 and Boston No. 14.
The Heat took Tyler Herro No. 13.
The draft is full of smokescreens and disinformation, especially from Boston. So, this can’t be taken as gospel.
The Celtics settled for Romeo Langford, who had a far less productive first season and is now out for the year.
Of course, it’s far too early to declare either player will absolutely have a better career than the other. Besides, Boston never chose between Herro and Langford. The Heat got the choice and took the player both teams seemingly agreed was better.
