NBA Rumors: Why Goran Dragic Is Ideal Target for Suns If Steve Nash Bolts
Steve Nash is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and his departure could very well leave the Phoenix Suns without a starting point guard.
The team has several directions it could go, but one option being talked about is signing former Sun Goran Dragic. Dragic was traded away two seasons ago to the Houston Rockets in a deal that brought Aaron Brooks over to Phoenix.
Dragic was a career backup point guard until starter Kyle Lowry went down with an injury last season. Dragic showed potential when he stepped in as the new facilitator and cemented his status as a legitimate NBA starter with his scoring and court vision.
According to Sean Deveney of Sporting News, the Suns will reportedly offer Dragic a starter's role if Nash chooses to sign with a contender.
Dragic would be more then welcome back in the desert; not only because he was a fan favorite, but because he is a much better player than he was during his stint with the Suns. He's more mature and looks like a leader.
Dragic averaged 18.0 points and 8.4 assists as a starter last season, and could easily average 15 points and seven assists playing in the Suns' fast-paced offense.
Other options like Deron Williams and Aaron Brooks don't seem likely, and Raymond Felton seems to be on the decline. Adding Dragic could be the first of several key moves to upgrade the backcourt and turn around a team that desperately needs an infusion of youth.
