It has been reported that San Antonio will negotiate a contract buyout for Dragic. This would make Dragic a free agent. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has said that rumors indicate that the Mavericks, Bucks, Bulls and Clippers would be interested in signing him after the buyout.
The pick San Antonio receives in the trade is protected through the 1-14 spots in 2022 and the 1-13 spots in 2023. It would turn into future second round selections past those points.
