MIAMI  – Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro, last season’s NBA Sixth Man of the Year, has signed a four-year contract extension, the team announced Sunday.

Multiple reports said the deal was worth an average of $30 million per season with performance incentives over the life of the contract that could make it worth as much as $130 million.

“His improvement every year since we drafted him has led to this day. We believe he will continue to get better.”
