Dragić, 35, will now find himself on one of the most compelling rosters in the NBA as he joins Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons in Brooklyn. He was once teammates with coach Steve Nash while the two played for the Suns. 

The Nets (31–28) are the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference as they come out of the All-Star break. Irving has been available on the road due to his vaccination status, while Durant is currently out with a sprained MCL.

Dragić is averaging eight points per game in just five appearances this season. He hasn't appeared in a game since Nov. 13 due to personal reasons, according to the Raptors.
