The Toronto Raptors acquired Goran Dragic as part of the trade return for their franchise legend, Kyle Lowry. While Goran Dragic is a good point guard, he doesn't match up well with the timeline of the other members of the roster, a lot of whom are younger players, such as the No. 4 pick from the 2021 NBA Draft, Scottie Barnes.

There have been recent rumors about Goran Dragic potentially getting a buyout from the Raptors, and subsequently signing with the Dallas Mavericks. However, a recent report has poured cold water on those rumors. Jordan Schultz of ESPN has reported that Goran Dragic may not even sign with the Mavericks and that there haven't been talks of a buyout between him and the Raptors.
