Sources told ESPN that the Milwaukee Bucks are the team most likely to sign free agent guard Goran Dragic, and a deal could be made as soon as Friday.
Sources say that Dragic, who is 36, passed his waivers on Thursday and will meet with Bucks officials in Milwaukee on Friday.
Sources at ESPN say that the Bucks are also giving center Meyers Leonard a second 10-day deal.
Dragic and the Chicago Bulls agreed this week to let him go. He is now set to join the Milwaukee Bucks, a team he was interested in before he signed with the Brooklyn Nets last season, sources said.

The Bucks think that Dragic’s tough-minded leadership and skills can help them win the championship if he comes off the bench. Milwaukee has won 16 straight games and now has a better record than the Boston Celtics in the East.
Dragic was one of the best guards in the league when he played for Phoenix, Houston, and Miami early in his career. In the last two years, he has been a solid backup player for Toronto, Brooklyn, and Chicago.
