The Dallas Mavericks have surfaced as a potential landing location for Goran Dragic, according to recent NBA reports. The former Chicago Bulls guard was released to make room on the roster, and numerous clubs are likely to show interest in him.
Midway through the season, Goran Dragic is still without a team after parting ways with the Bulls. Dragic averaged 6.4 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game in 51 games with Chicago.
Goran Dragic is anticipated to garner a lot of interest in the buyout market despite his unimpressive performance stats. Dragic may be useful to many playoff-bound teams as a shrewd veteran who can make plays for his team and generate his own shots.
Goran Dragic’s potential reunion with the Miami Heat was recently suggested by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. Jackson claimed that it would be somewhat difficult to get Dragic since it would rely on Kyle Lowry‘s injury issue.
Jackson also suggested the Dallas Mavericks as a possible destination for the guard in light of this. As they both played for Slovenia in last year’s EuroBasket, Dallas may profit from their on-court chemistry.

Are the Dallas Mavericks going to go for Goran Dragic?
Before the trade deadline, the Dallas Mavericks made a number of intriguing moves. By trading Kyrie Irving from the Brooklyn Nets, they were able to compete for the NBA championship right away.
Dallas does have a glaring weakness in the backup guard rotation, despite the dominant starting duo of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.
As it stands, the Mavs’ backup point guard is Frank Ntilikina. Dallas doesn’t appear to be very dangerous on paper with players like McKinley Wright IV and Jaden Hardy making up the remainder of the point guard rotation.
Thus it makes sense to pursue Goran Dragic. Also, his presence may enable Doncic to play fewer minutes and be kept around for the playoffs. The Mavericks have already signed Justin Holiday to fill their available roster position. So, it could be difficult to sign Dragic.
