Goran Dragic said the Miami Heat are his first choice in free agency.
Dragic will opt out of his contract before the end of the month, but he said he's hoping to stay with the Heat as long as the two sides are on the same page financially. "As long as I’m in a happy environment and a healthy organization, that’s the most important thing," Dragic said. "The next three, four, five years — I want to spend it on this kind of team, like the Miami Heat. They have great players, great coaching staff and great training staff." While he didn't return value as a third-round pick in 2014-15 , Dragic should benefit from a full season in a Heat uniform if he returns and is worthy of an early-mid round selection in fantasy drafts.

Goran Dragic hinted that he will likely return to the Miami Heat next season.

"I look forward to come back to have a great season with the Heat," Dragic said in a video released to Heat fans. It makes a lot of sense for him to return to Miami considering they can offer an extra year (Heat can offer five years while other teams are limited to four), but stranger things have happened in free agency. The Heat were decimated by injuries this season, but a potential lineup of Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside would be pretty deadly in the weak Eastern Conference.

Goran Dragic said during his exit interview that the extra year Miami can offer him during free agency is important.

Goran Dragic will opt out of his contract, and while he has said that he will explore all options during the free agency process, he's made it very clear that he would love to re-sign with the Heat. He's a great fit next to Dwyane Wade, and given that Miami can offer Dragic a five-year deal (one-year more than any other team can offer) it would appear the odds are in their favor to land The Dragon. He should be off the board no later than the third round in standard fantasy leagues next season.
Apr 17 - 11:48 AM

Goran Dragic will exercise the free agency clause in his contract, but said he'd prefer to stay with the Heat.

Dragic's decision to exercise his free agency clause will allow him to test the open market, but the 28-year-old is hoping to negotiate a long-term deal with the Heat. "Of course," Dragic said when asked if he's like to stay in Miami. "If you’re gonna find the same language, then it’s easy for everybody. It’s hard to talk about that right now. We’ll see. I need to sit down with my family and explore the options and see what option is the best, but the last two months that I was here was beautiful for me." Regardless of where he ends up, Dragic has the potential to deliver top-25 fantasy output when healthy and will likely be selected around the third round of drafts.
Apr 16 - 1:13 PM

Goran Dragic is unlikely to play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

There will be more on the way with the Heat wanting to lose this game. Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers will get most of the guard minutes, assuming they're not being rested as well.
Apr 15 - 7:14 PM

Goran Dragic said he hopes to remain with the Heat in free agency.

"I'm a free agent but I like this organization. I hope to stay here." While Dragic has yet to officially decline his player option for next season, there was never a chance of him exercising it. Miami is expected to make a strong effort to retain Dragic after trading for him at this season's deadline, but there will be others lurking in the picture.
Apr 13 - 9:16 AM

Goran Dragic scored 15 points with two rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer against the Bulls on Thursday.

The Heat had a putrid third quarter thanks to being outscored 33-8. As for Dragic, he had an air-ball on a 3-pointer and couldn't make his shots from distance tonight. Dragic did exhibit some encouraging shooting performances in his previous games this month, averaging 18.8 points, 3.0 boards, 6.0 dimes, 0.8 steals and 1.3 treys on 54.2 percent from the field in his last four. He'll be a must-start player against the Raptors on Saturday.
Apr 9 - 10:49 PM

Goran Dragic had his highest-scoring game as a member of the Heat on Tuesday, notching 28 points on 10-of-16 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs, with four rebounds, five assists and two steals.

He hadn't scored 28+ points since Dec. 5 and it couldn't have come at a more opportune time, as the injury-riddled Heat managed to hold off the Hornets for a 105-100 home victory. He's still battling a few nagging injuries, including a back ailment, but tonight's game should put his fantasy owners' minds at ease.
Apr 7 - 10:42 PM

Goran Dragic (back) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

There is no evidence suggesting Dragic is in any danger of missing this game, so there's really no reason to be worried despite the point guard feeling "slow."
Apr 6 - 1:52 PM

Goran Dragic had 15 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and five assists during Miami's 89-112 road loss in Indiana on Sunday.

Dragic reiterated this week that he feels "slow" due to a few lingering injuries, but he's averaging a solid 18.0 points and 6.0 assists over Miami's past two games. He was slapped with a Flagrant-1 foul for a below-the-belt hit on David West tonight, but it was incidental contact which is unlikely to result in further punishment from the league.
Apr 5 - 9:10 PM

Goran Dragic scored 21 points against the Pistons on Saturday with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was struggling in his previous four with just 11.5 points per game with 3.0 turnovers. Dragic and the Heat may have to run more because they're running out of big men. Expect Dragic to have a big game in Indiana on Sunday.
Apr 4 - 11:14 PM

Goran Dragic scored just six points with two boards, three assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers during a 99-86 loss in Atlanta on Friday.

Miami turned the ball over 19 times and couldn't get into an offensive rhythm tonight. With Dwyane Wade (knee) not at 100 percent, Dragic could have more offensive responsibility headed his way. His fantasy owners should have more confidence in him going forward.
Mar 27 - 11:52 PM

Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade each scored 12 points during Sunday's road loss in Oklahoma City, shooting a combined 10-of-25 from the field.

Dragic made one 3-pointer with five rebounds and three assists, but he didn't have any steals despite Russell Westbrook committing six turnovers. Dragic said before the game that he's dealing with nagging injuries and has felt "slow" for weeks. You can't tell by watching him play lately, however, as he came in with five-game averages of 18.6 points (55.1 percent FGs, 78.9 percent FTs), 0.4 threes, 4.0 boards, 6.6 assists and 2.0 steals.
Mar 22 - 6:02 PM

Goran Dragic had 20 points, 11 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 9-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's win.

The move to Miami has worked out well for Dragic, although a back injury slowed him down for a minute. Since returning from that, he's averaging 18.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, two steals is shooting 53 percent over his last four games.
Mar 18 - 11:11 PM

Goran Dragic scored 20 points with five rebounds, nine assists and two steals on 7-of-13 from the field in 40 minutes against the Cavs on Monday.

He is still dealing with a back issue, but playing 40 minutes tonight suggests he's fine. Since returning from his back injury, Dragic averaged 18.3 points, 3.0 boards, 5.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.3 treys on 51.3 percent from the field in his last three. Besides the lack of treys, his fantasy owners should be pleased with this output and could expect a little more, too.
