In March of 2021, Bjelica was traded to the Heat in a deal that sent Moe Harkless and Chris Silva to the Kings. In 11 games with Miami, Bjelica averaged five points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists, cracking the starting lineup only twice.
He had a decent playoffs with the Heat, scoring nine points per game, playing 15 minutes. The 33-year-old 6-foot-10 forward is known for his ability to knock down the three-point shot. He now joins the Warriors in their pursuit of another title as Klay Thompson returns to the lineup.
