Goran Dragic agreed to an one-year deal with the Chicago Bulls a couple of weeks ago, worth $2.9M. The Slovenian star guard spoke with Spela Lenart of Siol.net and explained his decision to join Chicago.
“Many factors played a role, two of which are certainly the excellent coach Billy Donovan and the club’s vice president Arturas Karnisovas. I’ve worked with him in the past with the Houston Rockets,” Dragic said, via Basketnews.

The veteran guard also opened up about his role with th team, noting that he will come off the bench as a second playmaker.
“I will be the second playmaker, playing 20-25 minutes per game, so the role will be quite large. That’s what makes me most happy to still be able to play at a high level.
Despite being 36 years old, I feel great and will try to compete as long as possible. I have two more seasons on the court in mind, and we’ll see how things go along the way,” the 14-year NBA veteran added.
Last season, Goran Dragic played for the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 7.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 21 games.
