Goran Dragic decided to make his own announcement at the 6 pm free agency opening, and it was a good one for Heat fans.

It was reported that he has agreed on a two-year deal, worth $37.4 Million.
Obviously this wasn’t much of a surprise, since Pat Riley made it clear that he would look to take care of Goran.
His ability to play through the injury in the Finals put the cherry on top, since it showed he truly trusts this organization to take care of him.
For a couple of first round picks, the Heat will get at least 6 seasons of Goran Dragic, who will likely go down as a top 10 player in the franchise’s history.
Seems like the trade worked out.

And as stated here, that trade clearly did work out. Forget the production side of Goran Dragic on this Heat team, his veteran leadership is what made it most assuring about his return.
Tyler Herro needs his veteran point guard as he tries to break out in his second year in the NBA, and lucky for him he will be there every step of the way.
Miami has officially got their guy, and he will be in Miami for many years to come.
