Goran Dragic, sent from the Heat to the Raptors in the Kyle Lowry sign-and-tradesaid: Toronto is not my preferred destination. I have higher ambitions. We’ll see.

“My message basically, to all Toronto fans, is I would like to apologize. It didn’t come out the right way. I know they love their team, and they should be proud, it is one of the best organizations in the NBA. They’ve already won a championship and I didn’t, so what I said, it really was not appropriate,” said Dragic.

“I was in the centre of the city and the journalists were there and I was asked about Toronto and it was basically taken out of context.

“I told them that I had spent seven years in Miami and that would be the preferred destination for me because my family is there and everything, not Toronto.”

“I love basketball, I love to play and I’m going to give 100 per cent wherever I play. Right now I’m [with] Toronto and that’s my main thing to think about.”

In 2015, Dragic publicly blasted the Suns as he pushed for a trade to the Heat. He later expressed regret for the tactic, though only after getting to Miami.
