Heat’s Dragic is available in trade talks

The Miami Heat haven’t actively shopped point guard Goran Dragic this summer, but the lefty is available and can be had for the right price, according to John Gambadoro of ArizonaSports.com.

Dragic signed a five-year, $85 million extension with the Heat in 2015 and has two years left on his deal. The 32-year-old has a player option for the 2019-20 season.

In 75 games this past season for Miami, Dragic averaged 17.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists while shooting 45.0 percent from the field and 37.0 percent from three.

A league source told AmicoHoops Saturday that Miami would gladly trade Dragic for a first-round pick. The Phoenix Suns, who are looking for a starting point guard after sending Brandon Knight to the Houston Rockets, could reach out to the Heat in regards to acquiring Dragic.

Dragic played for the Suns for six years and took a shot at the organization in 2016. It’s unclear if his relationship with ownership is on good terms again.

“It feels like they’re always changing something,” Dragic told Yahoo Sports. “They’re not like Miami, San Antonio, those teams that are really loyal when they find something.”

If the Heat end up trading Dragic, he might change his tune about the Heat too.
