Report: Goran Dragic Being Traded to Dallas Mavericks as Part of Jimmy Butler Deal

Goran Dragic Miami Heat

The Miami Heat are sending point guard Goran Dragic to the Dallas Mavericks to facilitate a three-way trade involving Jimmy Butler.

The move is being made to create the cap space needed in order to acquire Butler.

Butler was recently traded to the Heat, and details of the trade are being released slowly. As of now, the Heat have acquired Butler, with swingman Josh Richardson being sent to the Philadelphia 76ers, and Dragic being sent to the Mavericks.

The 29-year-old Butler will be signing a four-year, $142 maximum contract with the Heat, which leaves the team hard-capped for the 2019-20 season.

Update (10:30 pm EST): Dragic will not be included in the three-team trade. Instead, Derrick Jones Jr. and Kelly Olynyk are headed to the Mavericks.
