Well, this is surely interesting. Veteran point guard Goran Dragic recently signed a veteran minimum contract with the Chicago Bulls. It has been believed by many that the 36-year-old was brought in for depth and insurance. The reason I say insurance is because Bulls starting point guard Lonzo Ball is still battling a knee issue he suffered in January. Well, it seems the Bulls guaranteed Dragic 20-25 minutes of playing time per game.
Dragic recently met with a Slovenian media and explained why he chose Chicago over Dallas. The Mavericks did not want to play the veteran consistently and instead viewed him as an occasional depth piece.
Dragic didn’t like that idea. In the interview, the veteran says he feels he can still go 20 minutes per game. Dragic elaborated further, saying he isn’t ready to retire and doesn’t want to be in a “cheerleading role” on the bench.
Listen, Goran Dragic has had a wonderful career. He is a one-time NBA All-Star, has made an All-NBA team, and was the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2013-14. One has to wonder what is going on for him to make these remarks.
Are the Bulls not being truthful about Ball’s progress from knee surgery? Will he be ready by the time training camp rolls around? After digesting all of this information, there seem to be more questions than answers when it comes to the Chicago Bulls 2022-23 rotation.
