Goran Dragic had reportedly pledged to re-sign with the Suns before they traded him in 2015.
According to Ken Berger of CBS, Dragic had told the Suns he would re-sign with the team before they traded him. "Within days of [Jeff] Hornacek having a heart-to-heart with Dragic and securing a commitment from the Slovenian point guard to re-sign with the Suns as a free agent the following summer, the Suns shipped him to Miami in a three-team trade, a person familiar with the situation told CBS Sports," Berger wrote. While this changes the perception of the Suns' haul a bit, this news is more just an interesting tidbit as Dragic is coming off his first full season with the Heat. May 24 - 11:32 AM

The Heat will send staff to Europe to work with Goran Dragic.

The team isn't cutting corners on working with their point guard. Dragic had himself a very nice series against the Raptors, averaging 18.9 points, 5.3 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.3 treys. He started the season slow, so maybe a good offseason program can help him out.

Goran Dragic said during his exit interview that he will suit up for the Slovenian National Team this summer.

Dragic also said that he would like for the Heat to play with pace next year, and it's easy to understand why as his numbers spiked to 17.3 points, 6.7 assists, 4.6 boards and 1.0 steal per game on 48.5 percent shooting after the All-Star break. Chris Bosh's (blood clots) future will likely determine the direction of the Miami franchise, but Dragic has made it known that his preference is to play at an uptempo pace. He should go somewhere in the mid-rounds on draft day.
May 17 - 3:01 PM

Goran Dragic scored 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting during Sunday's defeat, adding six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Dragic was coming off a big Game 6 performance but this wasn't his finest hour, as he was torched defensively by Kyle Lowry all game long. The 2014 Most Improved Player is still owed more than $70 million over the next four years, including a final-year player option, but his deal doesn't look bad when you factor in the upcoming salary-cap spikes.
May 15 - 7:26 PM

Goran Dragic scored a playoff career-high 30 points during a Game 6 win over the Raptors on Friday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He was coming in without much momentum, failing to score more than 15 points in any of his previous three with a combined seven assists, as well. Dwyane Wade said Dragic was the difference an coach Erik Spoelstra was pleased. "He looked like him tonight, and tonight was the right time," Spoelstra said. The Heat will need another big game out of the Dragon on Sunday for Game 7.
May 13 - 11:12 PM

Goran Dragic was quiet in 39 minutes on Wednesday, finishing Miami's sloppy road loss with 13 points on 6-of-14 shooting, five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

Dragic started very slow but he sparked a 10-0 run to cut Miami's deficit to 10 points at halftime, before coming within one point late in the fourth quarter. Ersatz backup PG Tyler Johnson added just six points and four assists in 13 minutes off the bench tonight.
May 11 - 11:00 PM

Goran Dragic has been retroactively assessed a technical foul for swinging at Cory Joseph during the fourth quarter of Game 4.

Dragic will be required to pay a fine of $2000 for the technical foul, but there won't be a suspension here. Through Round 2, Dragic has compiled averages of 18.3 points, 4.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.5 triples and an unfortunate 3.5 turnovers per contest on 45.2 percent shooting. He'll need to be more disciplined with the rock if the Heat hope to secure a Game 5 victory on Wednesday night in Toronto.
May 11 - 10:51 AM

Goran Dragic scored 20 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers against the Raptors on Thursday.

He received three stitches on the inside of his lip and five on the outside. Dragic's bottom teeth went through his lip and to make matters worse he was charged with a blocking foul on the play. Dragic hit a clutch 3-pointer at the end of regulation and is dominating Kyle Lowry on both ends.
May 5 - 11:13 PM

Dwyane Wade praised Goran Dragic's aggressive play following Tuesday's Game 1 overtime win over the Raptors.

"He’s just being very aggressive, and to be successful in these playoffs, we need that," said Wade of Dragic. "I’m not saying he has to score 25-plus every night, but we need Goran on the attack. It makes everyone’s job easier and it makes us a better team." Dragic has been phenomenal over his past two outings, owning averages of 25.5 points, 6.0 boards, 3.0 assists, 2.5 triples and 2.5 turnovers on 56.8 percent shooting. If he can keep playing like this, he'll give Miami an excellent chance of reaching the Eastern Conference Finals.
May 4 - 1:25 PM

Goran Dragic led the Heat to a 102-96 overtime win in Game 1 vs. the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting.

He was coming in hot with 25 points in Game 7 vs. the Pacers on Sunday, so the Raptors are going to have their hands full if Dragic stays this hot. He added six boards, two assists and three 3-pointers with three turnovers in 41 minutes. Game 2 will be in Toronto on Thursday.
May 3 - 11:10 PM

Goran Dragic scored 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting to lead the Heat to a 106-73 win over the Hornets in Game 7 on Sunday.

The Dragon had a quiet series prior to Sunday with modest averages of 12.3 points, 4.3 boards, 4.3 assists, and 0.8 steals, but he picked the perfect moment to erupt. Dragic was arguably the best player on the court today, adding six rebounds, four assists and one block in 32 minutes. The Heat will now move on to face the winner of Sunday's Game 7 between the Raptors and Pacers.
May 1 - 3:23 PM

Goran Dragic had 22 points, five rebounds, eight assists and four 3-pointers on 9-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Pistons.

Dragic was great tonight and has looked good since returning from an illness four games ago. He should finish the season on a high note as the Heat fight to move up from their current No. 5 seed standing in the East.
Apr 5 - 11:34 PM

Goran Dragic (illness) returned to action on Wednesday with 11 points, nine assists, three rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and four turnovers.

Dragic said that his fever returned on Wednesday but he still played 38 minutes in a disappointing OT loss vs. the Lakers in L.A. The Heat get a day off before facing the Kings on Friday, so Dragic should be ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. Rajon Rondo and company.
Mar 31 - 1:32 AM

Goran Dragic (illness) will start against the Lakers on Wednesday.

He was almost a lock to play and he should be ready to go without any restrictions. Dragic has a great matchup tonight, so be sure to have him in your lineup.
Mar 30 - 9:32 PM

Updating a previous item, Goran Dragic (illness) said "hopefully" he will play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

"We're going to talk through the game how I'm going to feel, but we'll see," Dragic said. "I had a fever and a good sweat. I mean, it was no energy, aching, but now it's over hopefully." It still sounds like Dragic should be ready to roll, but there is a chance he rests here. Daily Slant: Dragic has a great draw tonight against a Lakers defense that ranks 30th against opposing PGs this season. This is also a nice opportunity to get him at a relatively low ownership percentage given that he sat out Monday (due to illness, not injury). Since Chris Bosh has been out of the lineup, Dragic owns a healthy 24.8% usage rate and has shouldered more of the offensive responsibility behind Dwyane Wade. While it's possible this game gets ugly in the 4th quarter, Dragic's ceiling is extremely high in this spot.
