Free agent Goran Dragic recently said that his wish is to return to the Miami Heat, and according to Miami Herald, his wish could come true.

Reportedly, the Florida team is in talks with the former player, who spent six years competing in Miami’s colors.

Dragic played for the Heat from 2015 to 2021. He earned his sole All-Star Game selection in 2018 as a Miami player and was one of the most important contributors to the team during the run to the Finals in the “Bubble” of 2020.

My home is in Miami; I have both children there; they go to school there. It really all works out,” Dragic added. “I spent the best seven years of my career there, and I think returning to Miami would be the icing on the cake. That would be something phenomenal. But we’ll see. It is necessary to understand that the NBA is a business, and in the end, only the results count. It’s really been a phenomenal season for Miami; they reached the finals, and now they’ve already changed half the team. That’s right; it’s a harsh reality that we basketball players in the NBA know well. Today you can be in Miami, tomorrow somewhere in Memphis; that’s just the way it is,” Dragic said just a few weeks back.

The 15-year NBA veteran averaged 16.2 points and 5.2 assists during his time with Miami. Before the Heat, he played for Phoenix and Houston, and after donned jerseys of Toronto, Brooklyn, Chicago, and Milwaukee.
