Is Goran Dragic the next Heat player to be on the trading block?
If we are being nice here, then the Miami Heat didn’t have a BAD offseason, but it sure doesn’t stack up to the offseason when the team signed LeBron James and Chris Bosh.
Or even the offseason when the Heat acquired Shaquille O’Neal from the Los Angeles Lakers.
Miami was quiet. While it may have been seemingly impossible, Pat Riley couldn’t bring James, Paul George or Kawhi Leonard to South Beach.
So, what’s next for the Heat?
During a conversation on Twitter, John Gambadoro, radio talk show host of Arizona Sports 98.7, says that Goran Dragic is available.
This has to do with both the Suns looking to bring in a point guard, as well as the Heat looking to get out of a contract.
Dragic, a former member of the Pheonix Suns, averaged 17.3ppg & 4.8apg last season for the Heat, and is scheduled to make about $18 million this season.
Add Dragic to the list that features Hassan Whiteside, Tyler Johnson, James Johnson, Justice Winslow and Dion Waiters.
All of those players, especially Whiteside, have been mentioned in trade talks.
Along with rumored trades, Miami is still waiting on Dwyane Wade to make his decision on whether he will play another season.
There is no clear cut team we can say will win the East, it’s wide open. We, just know it’s not going to be Miami.
Miami will make the playoffs again, and get beat in the first round, with its current roster. So, it’s no surprise Riley is trying to make the Heat a contender in the East.
