Sources: Bulls get deal with veteran PG Dragic

by Gordon Dixon - Veteran point guard Goran Dragic has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bulls, sources confirmed to ESPN.

3:44 PM ET ESPN The Chicago Bulls have agreed to a one-year contract with veteran point guard Goran Dragic , a source confirmed to ESPN on Sunday. The Brooklyn Nets won the Dragic sweepstakes last season, beating out the Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers , Golden State Warriors , LA Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks to sign the guard after his contract was bought out. He ended up playing just 16 regular-season games for Brooklyn and struggled some after sitting out most of the season with the Toronto Raptors . However, Dragic found his form in the playoffs, averaging 10.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 56% from the field in just under 20 minutes per game. The Athletic first reported news of Dragic's agreement with the Bulls. Dragic, 36, has a reputation for stepping up his game in the playoffs. He averaged 19 points per game for the Miami Heat during their run to the NBA Finals in 2020 before a plantar fasciitis injury sidelined him against the Lakers. Entering his 15th NBA season, Dragic has career averages of 13.7 points and 4.8 assists while shooting 46% from the field and 36% from 3. He won the NBA's Most Improved Player Award in 2013-14 and made his lone All-NBA team that same season. ESPN's Jamal Collier contributed to this report.
