Pinagbantaan ni Butler? Goran Dragic reveals reason on why he stayed in Miami


Goran Dragic has decided to re-sign with the Miami Heat… and it’s all because of Jimmy Butler.

According to Tim Reynolds of Associated Press, the Slovenian guard revealed that Butler called him last week suggesting that physical violence could be coming his way if he didn’t return to Miami.

“Jimmy’s a tough guy… I didn’t want him chasing my ass,” Dragic said.

Butler has developed a close relationship with Dragic in just his first year with the Heat, and he obviously wants the veteran to stay for a couple of years.

Dragic was a key contributor off the bench for the Heat averaging 16.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game. He even helped the team in the playoffs with 20.9 points before succumbing to foot injury in the Finals.
