Gerald Green laughed recently when asked if he was excited to again be playing with former Phoenix Suns teammate Goran Dragic, with the two now reunited with the Heat. “He makes it a lot easier for me,” Green said with a smile. “You should probably ask him, ‘Is it OK for you to be playing with Gerald again?’ No, playing with Goran is going to be great. I mean, he makes not only my job easier, he makes everybody else’s job easier.”

Phil Jackson tried to acquire Goran Dragic

Which players did you focus on? Phil Jackson: “Goran Dragic, for one. I heard through the grapevine that he was open to coming here. We worked hard on that possibility, but the asking price was too dear. Maybe we worked on that possibility so much so that it distracted us. I mean, Dragic is every team’s current choice for a nuclear option — a guard who can penetrate and either score or kick. Guys like Chris Paul and James Harden. But, anyway, that’s not really the way I want us to play.”

Did Dragic speak with other teams? Goran Dragic: “No, because Miami was the first team that called me. The last three months of last season, I was really satisfied with the organization and the people around me and the players. I was considering Miami the first option… Miami Heat is the right organization for me. I want to win something. I could go somewhere else, but I was really happy the last couple of months here. That was the right decision for me… Basically Miami Heat was the first option. Then they called me first. Pat was talking and saying what kind of team it was going to be… and I said I need to be on this wagon.”
