Goran Dragic, Meyers Leonard Re-sign With Heat (www.yardbarker.com)


and center Meyers Leonard aren’t going anywhere. 

Dragic announced via Twitter that he is staying with the Miami Heat

According to Bobby Marks of ESPN, Dragic put pen to paper on a two-year contract that includes a team option for the second season. 

Additionally, Leonard’s agents told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that the 28-year-old is remaining with the Heat on a two-year agreement that’s worth almost $20 million.

Across 59 regular-season games during the pandemic-altered campaign, Dragic averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 assists, and 3.2 rebounds while shooting 36.7 percent from three-point range and 44.1 percent from the field. He averaged a career-best 19.1 points during Miami’s playoff run but suffered a torn plantar fascia in his left foot in Game 1 of the NBA Finals versus the Los Angeles Lakers. 

Dragic returned to play 19 minutes in Game 6 of that series but wasn’t much of a factor. 

Leonard, meanwhile, averaged 6.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 51 regular-season contests during his first season with the Heat after spending the previous seven years with the Portland Trail Blazers.
