It is being reported that Dragic will sign with the Brooklyn Nets for the rest of the season.
This will add an immediate advantage to the team’s backcourt and will also help raise their chances of making it far in the postseason.
Nets Needing Help
When Dragic first entered the marketplace, there were many teams looking to sign the free agent guard.
Just some of the teams reportedly considering Dragic were the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Chicago Bulls.
Those are some of the biggest teams in the league, which goes to show just how high-caliber Dragic can be on the court.
Dragic is best known for his postseason skills and his team leadership skills.
He started 16 postseason games and averaged 19 points with the Miami Heat’s latest Finals run in 2020.
He will be joining a Nets team that has fallen swiftly through the Eastern Conference and is now struggling to make it into the playoffs.
With Dragic’s skills and experience, you can expect to see him get a lot of time in the court.
The Nets are currently awaiting the return of Kevin Durant, who is rehabbing from injury.
They are always waiting for newcomer Ben Simmons, who is expected to formally join the team in a few weeks.
To make the deal work, the Nets decided to waive guard Jevon Carter.
