Bulls officially announce the signing of Goran Dragic

The Chicago Bulls have officially announced the addition of veteran guard Goran Dragic to the roster.

Even though terms of the deal were not disclosed, the 36-year-old guard agreed to an one-year deal with the franchise, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Slovenian star guard spent the previous season with the Brooklyn Nets. He averaged 7.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 21 games.

“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,” Goran Dragic said on his decision to join the Bulls.

“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.”

Goran Dragic will now need to make a decision on whether he will play for Slovenia in the EuroBasket (September 1-18).

The veteran guard returned to the national team for the Basketball World Cup Qualifiers in late June and Slovenia head coach, Aleksander Sekulic, remains optimistic that Dragic will join the squad for September’s tournament.
