The Chicago Bulls recently waived one of the most beloved and celebrated point guards in the league and it sounds like the Milwaukee Bucks are ready to swoop in and pick him up.
Goran Dragic only played 51 games for the Bulls and has averaged just 6.4 points and 2.7 assists a game during an average of 15 minutes per game.
The Bulls decided to not recommit to Dragic recently and created a buyout for the former All-Star.
ESPN Sources: The Milwaukee Bucks have emerged as frontrunners to sign guard Goran Dragic. He has connected with a few contenders since Bulls waived him, but the East-leading Bucks have moved to forefront of reaching a deal with Dragic.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Bucks have emerged as frontrunners to sign Dragic.
Apparently, the Slovenian star has “connected” with multiple teams since being waived by the Bulls but it looks like the Bucks are going to land him.
Additionally, Milwaukee is also looking to sign Meyers Leonard to another ten-day contract, according to ESPN.
The Bucks think that Dragic could be a great fit in the weeks ahead, especially now that they are the top team in the East and looking to return to the NBA Finals.
It is unlikely that he will be able to produce points like he used to.
There was a time when Dragic was scoring more than 20 points a night when playing for the Miami Heat.
It was during that time that he earned his sole All-Star appearance.
The 36-year-old veteran is now in his 15th season so it’s understandable that his output has diminished some.
Yet, he is still known for his intelligence and tough mentality on the court.
Both of those things could come in handy as the Bucks power through the playoffs.NEXT: The Bucks Have Emerged As Frontrunners To Sign Veteran Guard
