I hope he goes to Dallas! They'll definitely become my 2nd favorite team while he's there!

Heart was heavy when he got injured in his first Finals.....I still feel like we would have won that if he and Bam were healthy. Dragic was awesome in that playoffs. I won't forget that. Ever.

He's a 35 year old. I can't imagine that the rebuilding Raptors won't buy him out. As for what you could expect, less quickness, less speed, and more injuries. He can't get to the basket or finish when he does like he used to. He leans more heavily on his 3pt shot than he used to. Fortunately he's a decent shooter. He's well liked by teammates and fans. He doesn't cause headaches.

He's still an asset to a team, but he's at the point when he can give you fewer minutes in fewer games. $19 million is way too much, but I would have loved to keep him at half that price.

All fair. My hope if he's on the team is that he can play 15-20 minutes per night playing on and off the ball with Fred VanVleet and Malachi Flynn. We'll see what happens!

A crafty vet pg who can still get hot and go for like 15 in a quarter from time to time. Ultimate competitor type guy who loves the game and great teamate. Able to accept any role just wants to win.

100% effort.

Still a very crafty slasher to the rim. Good ball IQ and fearless.

Will adapt to anything drawn by the coach.
