The Toronto Raptors are not in the best position at the moment. They are a decent team in the Eastern Conference and have plenty of large contracts that they have to pay. This includes NBA veteran Goran Dragic, who is making $19 million this season to act as a backup who struggles to get on the floor.
Dragic has played in just five games this season. The Raptors are currently below .500 in an East that is going to be competitive down the stretch near the bottom of the postseason race. While Dragic might be a trade piece, he might not be an easy one to move.
Dragic is owed a lot of money and is an aging point guard who does not look like he can produce on a consistent basis. Dragic had some good moments with the Miami Heat before being moved to Toronto.
The Miami Heat acquired Kyle Lowry in a sign-and-trade deal with the Toronto Raptors. Dragic was part of the return that was able to get the deal done.

Now, Dragic could be involved in another trade if a team wants to take a chance. It will be interesting to see if a win-now team would be interested in a backup point guard — the most important position on the floor and there are never too many on a roster.
There is a chance for some movement prior to the NBA trade deadline. Here are three teams who could be interested in acquiring Goran Dragic at some point this season.
