Dragic, 36, finished last season with the Nets, appearing in 16 regular-season games. He has repeatedly been linked to the Mavs, given his strong bond with star guard Luka Doncic. Dragic and Doncic teamed up to lead Slovenia to the 2017 EuroBasket championship.
Dragic was traded from the Heat to the Raptors last summer as part of the Kyle Lowry deal. Things didn’t go well for him in Toronto, as he appeared in just five games before he and the Raptors started to seek a trade. Eventually, one was found, with the Raptors dealing Dragic to the Spurs in February.
He reached a contract buyout with the Spurs shortly after that, landing with the Nets. It was there that he proved he still had plenty left in the tank, proving to be one of Brooklyn’s most-reliable players in the playoffs.
Also from the ESPN report: Headed into his 15th season in the Association, Dragic has career averages of 13.7 points and 4.8 assists, while shooting 46% from the field and 36% from three-point range. He won the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award in 2013-14 and made his lone All-NBA team that same season.
