Zoran Dragic, for the first time in NBA, parted ways with brother Goran. On Monday, 27th of July, Miami Heat traded Zoran Dragic, their reserve guard, shipping him off to Boston Celtics in order to clear tax space. But it wasn’t only Zoran who went through the trade, Heat guard Shabazz Napier has also been traded to Orlando Magic. Goran Dragic was informed well in advance about his brother’s trade thus striking a mutual understanding with the officials. Goran recently marked a contract worth $85,000 with the Miami Heat for the coming five years.
The exchange of Napier and Dragic most likely clears up the roster making space for young upcoming talents like Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson. These two huge trades of Miami Heat without a doubt saw a simplicity in their extravagance taxation rate.
Orlando sent a guaranteed 2016 second-rounder to Miami for Napier. Boston sent a secured 2019 second-rounder for Zoran Dragic, while getting a 2020 second-rounder and money to cover his 2015-16 pay.
In the current scenario, the Heat have 11 team players under guaranteed contract. With the exchanges of Napier and Zoran, the Heat decreased their finance by about $3 million and their extravagance expense bill by around three times that aggregate. The Heat, be that as it may, in any case stay well over the NBA’s extravagance charge limit, with the team connected to offers to additionally offload the agreement of Chalmers and Andersen.
Even after the trade of Napier and Zoran, the Heat are still the hot favourites, for a lot of people, to win NBA 2015-16.
