MIAMI - The Miami Heat have selected Tyler Herro with the No. 13 pick in the NBA draft.

Herro is a guard out of Kentucky.

Kentucky was 19-0 when Herro scored 15 points or more.

Scouts say he's one of the best shooters in the draft.

He shot 46.2% from the field and 35.5% from 3-point range.

Herro told ESPN, "I can't believe I'm standing here with a Miami Heat hat on... not too many people make it from where I'm from."
