Goran Dragic is going to continue playing for the Miami Heat, as he signed a two-year deal with the last season’s NBA finalists.

Jimmy Butler did everything in his power to keep his teammate on the Heat’s roster. As a result, he used his intimidating skills including half-jokingly threaten Dragic, if he does not come back, per Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.

Butler and Dragic were the veteran leadership on a young team as the Miami Heat. They helped the franchise make its sixth Finals appearance in its history.

In particular, Dragic averaged a career-high 19.1 points in the postseason along with 4.4 rebounds an 4.6 assists in 17 games.
