Beverly would agree to a contract buyout just a few days later that would make him a free agent, where he would end up back in his hometown as a member of the Chicago Bulls. However, the Bulls had to cut a guard in order to keep Beverly on the roster and it just happened to be Dragic in this scenario. Dragic, is now a free agent and eligible to sign with any team.

Dragic appeared in 51 games for the Bulls this season where he averaged just six points on the season. This move shouldn't be surprising at all for Bulls fans, as the Bulls just added Terry Taylor, who was picked up from the Indiana Pacers a couple weeks ago. The Bulls backcourt was just loaded with the emergence of Ayo Dusunmo alongside Zach Lavine, DeMar Derozan and Alex Caruso,
