Goran Dragic has decided that he won't play with Slovenia this summer.
Dragic and Heat president Pat Riley reportedly came to the decision together as the 29-year-old will now focus on his first full season as Miami's starting point guard. Dragic joins a strong supporting cast that includes Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and Hassan Whiteside and should be able to improve upon the 16.6 points, 5.3 assists, 1.1 teals, and 0.9 three-pointers that he averaged with the Heat last season. Dragic isn't quite in that upper tier of point guards, but he's still worth an early-mid round selection in fantasy drafts. Jul 28 - 10:56 AM

Goran Dragic has officially re-signed with the Miami Heat.

Dragic's deal will pay him just over $85 million over the next five years, which means the 29-year-old signed a sub-max deal to stay with the Heat. "I'm really happy to be here. It was easy decision for me," Dragic said. "This organization wants to win a lot of championships. My father and mom raised me that money is not everything. I still got a good deal. I could get more,but it doesn't matter. I'm happy." Dragic should be able to improve upon his averages of 16.6 points, 5.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.9 three-pointers with the Heat last season and will make for a solid early-mid round selection in fantasy drafts.

Goran Dragic intends to sign his five-year, $86 million deal in Miami on Thursday.

Dragic gave the Heat a bit of a discount with his contract, and after averaging 16.6 points, 5.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 three-pointers per game with the Heat last season on a pristine 50.2 percent shooting from the field, he'll make for an excellent early-mid round selection in next year's drafts. As an added bonus to drafting Dragic, you can expect his scoring to go up during the long stretches that Dwyane Wade finds himself on the sidelines.

Goran Dragic will sign a five-year, $90 million deal with the Miami Heat.

Dragic has a player option after the fourth year, but the Heat have to be thrilled with this deal. Dragic could have asked for more money (he could have received up to $4 million more per year), but this gives the Heat some additional flexibility to re-sign Dwyane Wade. Luol Deng has already opted into his deal, so now it's up to Wade to cap off a successful offseason for the Heat.
Jul 1 - 9:44 AM

Goran Dragic spoke with the Heat soon after free agency began on Wednesday, and the two sides will re-convene in the morning.

The Heat are reportedly willing to offer Dragic a five-year deal worth at least $90 million, and the lack of competition suggests that most GMs view his re-signing as a foregone conclusion. Dragic is currently in Slovenia so the two sides will attempt to hammer out a deal via telephone later on Wednesday.
Jul 1 - 2:20 AM

According to the Miami Herald, Goran Dragic could get a five-year deal between $90 million and $100 million from the Heat.

ESPN reported that Dragic was going to get a five-year deal in excess of $80 million, but this report does make some sense. This still isn't a max offer by any means, but the Heat could be trying to save some money so that they could re-sign a disgruntled Dwyane Wade as well. Other teams can only offer Dragic a four-year deal worth $86 million, so the Heat are still the clear favorites to retain his services.

According to ESPN, the Miami Heat are planning on offering Goran Dragic a five-year deal in excess of $80 million in free agency this summer.

Interesting. This isn't the max offer that we were expecting, as the Heat have the ability to offer Dragic over $100 million over the course of five years. Pat Riley has all but guaranteed that he will keep Dragic no matter what, but things could get interesting if a team such as the Knicks or Lakers offer Dragic a four-year, $85 million deal. The Heat will have to find a way to keep Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and Dragic this summer, so Riley is going to have to get creative.

Impending free agent Goran Dragic has let the Heat know that he wants them to play faster next season.

Heat president Pat Riley and head coach Erik Spoelsta reportedly agree with Dragic, and it looks like they are eager to build around him moving forward. The Lakers, Knicks, Pelicans, Bucks and Kings are rumored to still be very interested in signing Dragic this summer, but the Heat are still the clear frontrunners to retain his services. If Dragic does return to Miami, they could have a formidable lineup if they are able to stay healthy.
May 24 - 9:37 AM

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.
May 5 - 12:14 PM

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.
Apr 22 - 9:57 AM

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.
