Free agent guard Goran Dragic has agreed to a deal for the rest of the season with the Milwaukee Bucks, sources told ESPN.
Dragic, 36, was waived by the Chicago Bulls this week and officially became a free agent on Thursday. He now joins the Bucks after strongly considering them before signing with the Brooklyn Nets a season ago, sources said.
The Bucks believe Dragic’s tough-minded leadership and abilities can help them off the bench in their championship pursuit. Milwaukee has won 16 straight games and overtaken the Boston Celtics for the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Dragic was one of the league’s best guards earlier in his career in stops with Phoenix, Houston and Miami, and he became a sturdy reserve in the past two seasons with Toronto, Brooklyn and Chicago.
