A 6' 5" guard/forward, after attending Oceanside High School in New York, Heyman starred for Duke University in the early 1960s, where he scored 1,984 career points and averaged 25.1 points per game. As a senior in 1963, he earned the AP National Player of the Year award, the ACC Player of the Year award, the Oscar Robertson Trophy, and the NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player award (even though Loyola University Chicago actually won the tournament).
Heyman's success in college led to his being selected first in the 1963 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks. During his first season with the team, he averaged 15.4 points per game and made the NBA All-Rookie Team. His playing time with the Knicks decreased during his second year, however, causing his scoring average to drop to just 5.7 points per game. Heyman parted ways with New York in 1965, and after brief stints with the Cincinnati Royals and Philadelphia 76ers, he left the NBA for the American Basketball Association in 1967.
He played in the ABA for the next three seasons, winning a league championship with the Pittsburgh Pipers in 1968 as he averaged over 20 points a game.
Heyman retired from basketball in 1970 with 4,030 combined NBA/ABA points.
His Duke jersey number #25 was retired in 1990.
As of July 2006, he owns Tracy J's Watering Hole in Manhattan.
