There may already be a suitor for a former Bulls guard.
On Tuesday, the Chicago Bulls waived veteran guard Goran Dragic to open up a roster spot and provide Dragic with a chance to sign with a contender following Chicago’s acquisition of Patrick Beverley.
On Thursday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Milwaukee Bucks are the frontrunners to sign Dragic.

The Bucks have won 16 games in a row, moving into the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, which will give Dragic a chance at chasing a ring in his 15th season.
Dragic averaged 6.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 51 games this season with the Bulls.
