Goran Dragic (rest) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Magic.
Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Josh McRoberts and Hassan Whiteside (calf), will all get the night off, as head coach Erik Spoelstra does his best Gregg Popovich impersonation. Whiteside is the only guy out of the group dealing with an actual injury, and this is preseason basketball at its finest. Oct 13 - 5:57 PM

Goran Dragic scored five points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 24 minutes on Monday.

He said he isn't in mid-season shape last week and it showed. Dragic should come around shortly and prospective fantasy owners shouldn't lower him in their rankings because of the slow start.
Oct 12 - 11:53 PM

Goran Dragic said his "legs are a little heavy" at training camp.

He took a little more time off than usual, so he's not in shape yet. It's still just Oct. 10 and Dragic doesn't have a history of being out of shape, so feel free to dismiss this. If he struggles in the preseason, this could be the reason.

Goran Dragic said he's happy his brother Zoran is in a better situation in Russia.

While Goran is without his brother in Miami, he said he's happy his sibling is in a situation where he'll see playing time. "I was sad, of course," Goran said of the trade. "I know how much he wants to be part of a team in the NBA, but I understand this is a business. That’s a better situation for him right now. He’s gonna get playing time. He signed a good deal in Russia. He’s happy. That’s a good thing." Family aside, Dragic is worth an early-mid round draft pick in standard fantasy drafts as he enters his first full season with the Heat.
Oct 6 - 10:14 AM

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.
Jul 9 - 1:55 PM

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.
Jul 7 - 6:53 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 10:27 AM

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.
