Goran Dragic is expected to be a buyout candidate after being transferred to Spurs. Now that he’s a free agent, these NBA teams could be a great fit.

The NBA transaction deadline especially busy, with blockbuster deals like James Harden and Ben Simmons being swapped, Tyrese Haliburton to the Pacers for Damontas Sabonis, and several other big deals. Under the radar, however, was the deal between the Toronto Raptors and the San Antonio Spurs that sent veteran defender Goran Dragic to the latter franchise.

Dragic was basically knocked off this season’s Miami Heat roster by picking a team to make room for Kyle Lowry. He wanted to play for a candidate and his time with the Raptors was not good because of that. Dragic only played for five games before leaving due to personal issues.

But following the move to San Antonio, Spurs are paving the way for Dragic to get his wish as, according to multiple reports, his contract will be bought out, making him a free agent.

So if Dragic wants a shot to play against an opponent and get on the floor, there are plenty of options. However, these three potential destinations would be ideal for both the team and the player in this situation.

Goran Dragic destination: 3 teams can provide veteran minutes, shot into a ring

3. Chicago Bulls

It’s been a remarkably impressive season for the Chicago Bulls so far as they sit as 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference just 0.5 games back from the Heat. Even more impressive, they managed to do this with their elite guar rotation curtailed by injury.

Part of the reason the Bulls remained successful without Lonzo Ball and late Alex Caruso was the quick arrival of rookie Ayo Dosunmu. He is a revelation for this team. But the problem that has arisen is the lack of a “true point guard” that is meant to be deep in the rotation. Chicago has been forced to turn to Matt Thomas far more often than fans would have liked.

Dragic would address that as a rotating weapon to deploy with Coby White, allowing the former first-round player to transition into a more off-the-ball role where he is better set up to thrive. Dragic’s role in Chicago is clear and their success this season will fit the bill for what the veteran is looking for a potential suitor.
