Former All-Star Goran Dragic is retiring after 15 NBA seasons with seven teams.

The 37-year-old point guard is best known for his time with the Miami Heat from 2015-21, including his lone All-Star selection in 2017-18.

Dragic was the NBA’s Most Improved Player and made the All-NBA third team with the Phoenix Suns for the 2013-14 campaign.

He played in 946 games (530 starts) from 2008-23 and averaged 13.3 points, 4.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds with the Suns, Houston Rockets, Heat, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks.

He never won an NBA championship, reaching the 2020 NBA Finals during the bubble season in Orlando. His Heat lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.

Dragic plans to play a farewell game in his native Slovenia in August, according to reports out of that country.

His international accomplishments include leading Slovenia to the 2017 FIBA EuroBasket championship, where he earned MVP honors. –Field Level Media
