I asked Caleb Martin about his takeaway from his first post-season to work on individually in the Summer:
He mentions a lot about playing a role like PJ Tucker
Here’s what else he said:

Heat’s Max Strus on rescinded 3-pointer, “human error makes an error”; Tyler Herro addresses postseason slump, injury. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Also: Caleb Martin on free agency; Gabe Vincent on role; Udonis Haslem on retirement; Herro on extension; Victor Oladipo’s offseason. – 3:46 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
I asked Caleb Martin what the one skill-set he took from his playoff experience to improve on:
References being that “tweener” like PJ Tucker who can screen and play-make off the roll
Kept saying he wants to be here
Now it seems like he’s locked in on his role – 2:41 PM

Heat only went eight deep in first half. Based on how Herro looked, might only be seven deep in second half. No Caleb Martin. No Duncan Robinson. No Dewayne Dedmon. – 10:12 PM

More on this storyline

Miami’s postseason will be critical for evaluating Herro and other rotation pieces alongside the Adebayo-Butler-Lowry trio. Herro’s extension wouldn’t hit the Heat’s books until 2023-24, the final year of Lowry’s hefty deal, but Miami’s creative front office may need careful calculus to bring back both Victor Oladipo, barring a strong return from injury, and restricted free agent Caleb Martin for 2022-23. Both players are known to have strong interest in remaining with the Heat, sources told B/R. -via Bleacher Report / March 11, 2022
