Goran Dragic raised a few eyebrows Monday when he suggested he wasn’t particularly happy about being traded to the Toronto Raptors. Later in the day, he cleaned up those comments a bit.
Dragic said in an interview on Slovenian television that had “higher ambitions” than to play for the Raptorsand that Toronto had not been his preferred destination. Naturally, those comments returned to Toronto, where several Raptors fans weren’t impressed with the first comments they’d heard from their new point guard.
In light of the response, Dragic spoke to Sportsnet’s Michael Grange to clarify his comments. Dragic apologized and said that his words had not come out right, and that he would remain professional and play as hard as he could for Toronto while he was there.
