Veteran point guard Goran Dragic exploded in the Orlando bubble, helping the Miami Heat shock the world and make the NBA Finals.

Just minutes into the start of 2020 free agency, the guard has already reached an agreement to return on a two-year deal.

The Slovenian baller will turn 35 in May, bit has proven he can remain effective at this stage of his career. Alongside Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, he averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 assists, and 3.2 rebounds per game on 44.1% shooting.

It was an obvious move to make for both sides and for the Heat especially, who are trying to run it back and make another Finals run in 2021.

Pat Riley and his team have had their name plastered on all kinds of rumors lately, and it's clear they have big plans this offseason. They will need to continue to develop their roster and make adjustments if they want to keep pace with the changing landscape.

Re-signing Dragic, who also happens to be a knockdown shooter, was a step in the right direction for the club.
