Dragic undecided about $19.2M player option with Heat

Heat point guard Goran Dragic averaged better than 13 points per game this past season.

Goran Dragic has a $19.2 million player option with the Miami Heat for the 2019-20 season.

However, the point guard has yet to decide whether or not he will pick it up, according to Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald.

“I had a meeting with [Heat president] Pat [Riley] and that was it. I told him I’m going to make my decision when that comes,” Dragic said. “So I still need to talk to the family, the agent. Right now, I just wanted to have at least two weeks to one month completely off, enjoy my vacation with them.”

Dragic averaged 13.7 points and 4.8 assists in what proved to be an injury-plagued season. He had right knee surgery in December and he missed 46 games.

His decision on the player option has major implications for Miami, which will be over the salary cap if both Dragic and center Hassan Whiteside exercise their respective player options. Whiteside’s option calls for him to earn $27.1 million next season.
