Goran Dragic announced he has re-signed with the Miami Heat as soon as free agency started, making the Heat fans very happy to have the point guard with them for at least one more season. Dragic shared on Twitter a video showing a series of billboards announcing he is going to run it back the Heat this upcoming season after reaching the NBA Finals in the Orlando bubble.

A lot was said about Dragic in recent weeks but the player finally decided to stay put in Miami and give it another try in the Floridians. The Heat went big and placed billboards on the streets of Slovenia, where Dragic is originally from. That was a great gesture from him, who didn't hesitate to show it to the world.

Besides Dragic's loyalty and his desire to remain with the team, as well as Miami's drive to keep him on the roster, Jimmy Butler also played a key role in this decision. Dragic himself admitted that Jimmy sent him a strong message of what was going to happen if he didn't re-sign with the Heat this offseason.

This was a great gesture from the Heat and a big message from Butler. In the end, they completed the mission, using different methods, but Dragic is staying in South Beach.
