Prior to the trade deadline, I noted the Bucks had interest in Goran Dragic. That interest hasn’t waned. Bucks, Suns and Mavs appear to be the frontrunners for the veteran guard. – 6:00 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Tre Jones is available tonight per Spurs
Dragic, Satoransky, Richardson, and Langford are all OUT (not with team) – 5:56 PM

Raptors say Fred VanVleet is questionable for tomorrow’s game against Denver. Finally Goran Dragic is off the report and one would assume Thad Young could make his debut, if logistics work. – 4:10 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Ujiri on Dragic: “At the end of the day I think Goran was looking for a contending team. Goran came in here & was a great professional & did everything that we asked… And then Goran had a personal situation… Difficult situation a little bit but he acted in a professional way” – 2:51 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Spurs injury report submitted to league lists Dragic (not with team) and Satoransky (not with team) as out.
Tre Jones (dental procedure) is questionable.
For Atlanta, Lou Williams (hamstring) is questionable. – 9:25 AM
