Weâ€™re low on guard depth btw.
I can see where you are coming from with this, as far as proven NBA talent, we are short on guard depth. But, I look realistically at this roster and this is a fringe playoff team at best, unless other teams face major injuries like last season.
I just see Dragic as a weird fit. Lowry was a sport and because he had a real leadership role here he stuck it out on a bad team until the wheels fell off with COVID absences.
Dragic has no history here and obviously wants to play with his countryman in what might end up his final NBA year. It just seems weird to hold him hostage here just in case some contender has $19m or so to throw at for a veteran PG. The playoff teams seem good on their guard depth and I can't think of one who can afford Dragic. Not sure why waiting until the deadline would be an end game for Dragic.
My main reason to drop Dragic is because we have good versatile players that can fit a more free flowing system. We have multiple big initiators and I really want to watch David Johnson, Scottie Barnes and Dalano Banton all handle the ball and get their reps. Dragic would be only good if we were fighting for seeding, but I don't think we are positioned for that. We should be positioning for Emoni Bates.
