According to Ethan Skolnick of CBS Sports, several teams, including the Indiana Pacers, have inquired about Miami Heat point guard Goran Dragic; however, the Heat so far have turned down every offer that has been made to them.

The 31-year-old Slovenian is set to make just over $17 million next season, and is on the books until 2020, when he can opt out of a $19.2 million contract if he chooses.
It’s clear that the Heat are invested in Dragic for the long run and hope he can be the franchise’s point guard for years to come. “The Dragon” had a career year last season as he put up averages of 20.3 points, on 47.5 percent shooting from the field and 40.5 percent from three.
As far as offseason moves go, the Heat anxiously await the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday night, when they will be drafting in the unpredictable 14th position.
