Miami Heat Rumors: Team Focused on Re-signing Goran Dragic
The Miami Heat took a huge blow when they lost Chris Bosh for the rest of the season due to blood clots in his lung. Although Bosh's prognosis is good, there is currently no word on how long his recovery will take. In the meantime, the Heat are focused on making the right moves and one of these moves include resigning Goran Dragic, who will become a free agent at the end of the season.
Dragic came over to Miami from the Phoenix Suns on the NBA trade deadline day. His fast-paced playing style has helped increase the Heat's possessions per game.
"I think it is [contagious]," Dwayne Wade said in regards to the team running with Dragic. "When a guy has the ball and he's pushing it, if you want it, then you got to get in front of it. You got to get with him. No doubt about it, he's going to make you get out and go. He doesn't even look fast when he's running, but he's quick."
Although Dragic is still adjusting to the playbook of a new team, the Heat are expected to offer him a huge deal in July. In 57 games this season, Dragic is averaging 16 points and 4.2 assists
Dragic, who is listed as questionable due to back spasms, could face off against his former team on Monday at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL.
Other rumors are claiming that the Heat are interested in signing Andray Blatche, who signed a one-year deal with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. His contract ended on Feb. 1, 2014 and Blatche has not resigned in China yet although rumors claim that the 28-year-old wants to.
With the Flying Tigers, Blatche averaged 31.1 points, 14.6 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 2.8 steals per game in over 38 games.
The Heat have also reportedly signed Henry Walker to a second 10-day deal.
