Goran Dragic has a decision to make after he was officially bought out by the San Antonio Spurs recently. Although he is at the prime age of 35, there is no denying that the Slovenian guard could be of use to contending teams wanting to make a push in the upcoming NBA playoffs.

Dragic was bought out by the Spurs five days after he was traded to San Antonio by the Toronto Raptors, SI.com reported. It was hardly surprising since most expected it after sitting out games with the Raptors.

Now that he is available, there are several teams in pursuit of the All-Star guard. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the frontrunner for Dragic’s services is reportedly the defending NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks.

It would make sense for Dragic considering the 6-foot-3 guard is not only looking to join a team and sit on the bench. The Bucks need added backcourt help. If the two sides could work something out, Dragic may have a more defining role in helping Milwaukee in its NBA postseason push.

But until that is set, there are still a couple of other teams interested in the Slovenian hotshot. That list includes the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and the Chicago Bulls.

But for Wojnarowski, the Bucks appear to be close.

“Dragic I think is closer to a decision but Milwaukee has been aggressive and they can offer him not just a chance at being part of the defending champions, but a chance to play a pretty significant role, and I think that’s really been their sell to him,” he stated.

The Lakers could be a viable landing spot but their struggles are apparent. Dragic, who will become a free agent this summer, is aware that he needs to make the most out of the 2021-22 season.

There is perhaps no better way to do that than by joining a team that is looking good and has fewer headaches for the next couple of months.
