After the game, Huerter caught up with Heat star Dwyane Wade and exchanged jerseys with the 13-time All-Star.
Wade said on the Heat broadcast he had heard Huerter wore the No. 3 jersey as a nod to him, adding he had planned to make the swap when Miami and Atlanta met for the final time. Wade plans on retiring following the 2018-19 season.
The moment adds to what has been a solid debut campaign for Huerter. The 20-year-old is averaging 9.4 points and shooting 39.1 percent from three-point range.
Wade's Heat jersey is likely to occupy a special place in the Huerter household.
