Goran Dragic throws shade at Raptors amid Mavs trade rumors
The Toronto Raptors completed a sign-and-trade that sent long-time point guard Kyle Lowry to the Miami Heat in exchange for a package highlighted by Goran Dragic. Lowry’s departure was expected as the Heat were always the main landing spot for him.
As it turns out, Dragic doesn’t seem too thrilled about landing with the Raptors, and expresses his preferred destination is not Toronto.
Interesting comments here from Dragic and it remains to be seen whether the Raptors decided to keep him or not. Rumors have swirled about Dragic’s interest in joining the Dallas Mavericks, and the interest seems to be mutual in that regard.
But, the Raptors don’t need to trade him and could think of him as a bridge for the time being. Either way, the fact the Dragic publicly came out and made these comments have to be of some concern to the Raptors and perhaps they think about working out a buyout or a trade with the veteran point guard.
The situation is a confusing one and got even more confusing with the Pascal Siakam trade rumors that have come about recently. So, there is a possibility that both Siakam and Dragic are on their way out of town. This should make for an interesting summer for the Raptors.
