Goran would have preferred having his brother around, but was realistic about the team’s perspective and Zoran’s viability in the NBA. Zoran logged 75 minutes in his first year in the league. “I was sad, of course,” Goran said of the trade. “I know how much he wants to be part of a team in the NBA, but I understand this is a business. That’s a better situation for him right now. He’s gonna get playing time. He signed a good deal in Russia. He’s happy. That’s a good thing.
In signing LeBron and Bosh, Riley engineered the greatest free-agency coup in sports history, and as February’s trade deadline approached, other suitors for Dragic backed away, sensing the Heat’s don had the Suns point guard in the bag for the long haul, according to sources across the league. The Heat deny they discussed Dragic’s next contract during trade talks — “There was no deal,” a Heat spokesman says — and the league says it never received any official complaint about tampering. Dragic may have liked the Heat from the outside, but things can always go haywire once a player actually arrives on a team. Miami wagered on its culture and the lure of the five-year contract only it could offer.
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.”
