The Boston Celtics had serious interest in drafting Tyler Herro leading up to the 2019 NBA Draft.
Boston owned the 14th pick but the Miami Heat picked Herro at No. 13. The Celtics lost a coin flip to the Heat for the selection and they ended up selecting Romeo Langford at No. 14.
"On NBA draft night last year there was a collective moan among the Boston Celtics brass right about the time the Miami Heat used the No. 13 pick to select Tyler Herro," wrote A. Sherrod Blakely this week.
Herro is averaging 20.5 points, 7.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists through the first four games of the Eastern Conference Finals.
