Pat Riley opens up on what why it was ‘essential’ to bring back Goran Dragic
- Updated: November 22, 2020
“It was essential for us to bring Goran back,” said Riley. “He is part of our team, part of our culture and part of our family. He provides backcourt veteran leadership and can still play at a very high level. I’m glad to have him back in the fold.”
Last season, Dragic averaged 16.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game while shooting 36.7 percent from three. In the 2020 NBA Playoffs, Dragic averaged 19.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.
Although he started 16 of the 17 games he appeared in during the 2020 NBA Playoffs, Dragic is likely to return to a sixth man role for the Heat during this upcoming regular season.
Dragic has been with the Heat since February of 2015, when the Heat acquired him in a trade with the Phoenix Suns. During his time in Miami, Dragic has averaged 16.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.
