There is little doubt that the biggest priority for the Heat during the offseason will be to re-sign their starting point guard in Goran Dragic.

Dragic was acquired at the trade deadline back in February. With the exception of Wade, it is clear that Dragic has established himself as the Heat’s second-best option on offense. In 26 appearances with Miami, the veteran point guard had per game averages of 16.6 points and 5.3 assists on 50 percent shooting.

The Heat now have a legitimate playmaker at the point guard position. Dragic holds a player option worth $7.5 million for next season, but has already announced his intent to waive the option in order to enter free agency. However, he has made it clear Miami is where he’d like to spend the next few years of his career.

Dragic stated how “happy” he is in Miami back in early March, via Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post:

“Yeah, of course (about a return to Miami). I’m happy right now here. There’s still 22 games and I never know what’s going to happen, but at this point now, that’s what it is.”

The 28-year-old point guard will be the key to the Heat’s resurgence as an elite team in the Eastern Conference over the next few years. It is imperative he is re-signed at all costs.
