NBA Rumors: New "Strong Frontrunner" Emerges For Goran Dragic

Goran Dragic is looking for his 5th NBA stop in the last two years, after being waived by the Chicago Bulls this week. And according to NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowki, the Milwaukee Bucks have emerged as the leaders to sign him. 

Woj says that Dragic has "connected with a few contenders" but the Bucks seem to have the inside lane, calling them "strong frontrunners." He is, in fact, visiting with Milwaukee on Friday, sources said, and a deal could get done then.

This isn't the first time the Bucks have shown interest in Dragic as a backup guard. They reportedly tried to sign him at this point last season before he decided to go to the Brooklyn Nets.

The 36-year-old guard averaged 6.4 points and 2.7 assists in 51 games with the Chicago Bulls this season. 

Dragic spent seven seasons with the Miami Heat, before they dealt him to the Toronto Raptors in the Kyle Lowry sign-and-trade after the 2021 season. He wasn't thrilled to be with Canada's Team, and left them early in the '21-'22 season. The Raptors eventually dealt him, he was waived, and he then signed with the Nets for the remainder of the year.

The Nets moved on after the season, leaving him to seek out a new team, leading him to the Bulls last summer. Now he could be joining his 5th team in that short time span, on Friday.
