Goran Dragic reaches settlement with Bulls in free company

The Chicago Bulls reached an agreement with free agent Goran Dragic.

The Bulls agreed to a one-year, $2.9 million deal with the veteran guard on Sunday, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, which adds significant value to a capital game was strong.

Dragic spent last season with both the Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets, though he only appeared in 21 games all season. He averaged 7.3 points and 4.8 assists per game with the Nets ending the year.

Chicago will mark the sixth team for Dragic, who will enter his 15th season in the league this fall.

Dragic currently plays for the Slovenian national team, which is trying to qualify for the FIBA ​​World Cup. There is speculation that Dragic will eventually land with the Dallas Mavericks next season – both are Mavericksost Jalen Brunson to New York Knicks in free agencyand because it will pair Dragic with his friend and also Slovenian star Luka Doncic.

Instead, Dragic will join a large group of guards in Chicago, including Lonzo Ball, Ayo Dosunmu, Coby White, Alex Caruso and Zach LaVine, who has just agreed to a 5-year, $215 million contract extension.

The Bulls won 46-36 last season, marking their first season in six years, but they were knocked out of the knockout stages in the first round. The Bulls led the Eastern Conference at one point last season when they suffered a number of significant injuries, including one that knocked Ball out of the year.
