Herro was drafted 13th overall in last month's NBA Draft, but remained unsigned until Wednesday night.

There were rumors going around the league that Herro could've been involved in a package deal for Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook.

That doesn't seem likely anymore.

In his five Summer League games, Herro is averaging 20.4 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 4.0 apg, and 1.60 spg.
