In a surprising move, the Chicago Bulls have waived veteran guard Goran Dragic, citing a mutual decision to create a roster spot. The 35-year-old Dragic, who was acquired in a trade with the Toronto Raptors just a few weeks ago, was expected to provide valuable depth and experience to the Bulls’ backcourt.
The move comes as a shock to many Bulls fans who were excited to see Dragic in a Bulls uniform. However, it appears that the Bulls’ front office had other plans, possibly including signing a player who was recently bought out or making a trade before the deadline.
Despite his limited playing time with the Bulls, Dragic has had a long and successful career in the NBA. The Slovenian point guard has played for several teams over the years, including the Phoenix Suns, Miami Heat, and Houston Rockets. He was an All-Star in 2018 and was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2014.
The Bulls, who are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 31-23, are looking to make a deep playoff run this season. With Dragic gone, the team will rely heavily on their starting guards, Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball, as well as their bench players.
While the Bulls’ decision to waive Dragic may have caught some fans off guard, it appears to be a strategic move in the team’s pursuit of a championship. The team now has an open roster spot, which could be used to sign a player who can help them in their playoff push.
Only time will tell if the Bulls’ gamble will pay off, but one thing is for sure: the team is not afraid to make bold moves in pursuit of their goals. As the playoffs approach, all eyes will be on the Chicago Bulls and their quest for a championship.
