The Miami Heat and guard Goran Dragic have agreed to a five-year, $90 million contract, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Marc Stein was first to report the news, followed by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The fifth year is a player option, according to both reports.
Dragic, 29, declined to exercise the $7.5 million player option in his contract for the upcoming season last week and became a free agent.
The Heat acquired Dragic in a trade with the Phoenix Suns in February, giving up four players and two future first-round draft picks in exchange for Dragic and his brother Zoran.
Dragic averaged 16.6 points, 5.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game in 26 games for the Heat. He had a career year in 2013–14, averaging 20.3 points, 5.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game.
Dragic cannot sign his contract until free agency officially opens on July 9.
