Goran Dragic made his NBA debut with the Phoenix Suns in 2008 and would go on to appear in 183 regular season and 16 playoff games before being traded to the Houston Rockets in 2011 for point guard Aaron Brooks. As one of the better backup point guards in the league Dragic was able to show what he could do with consistent starter’s minutes during the 2011-2012 season when Rockets starting point guard Kyle Lowry was sidelined with a bacterial infection.
Dragic started a career-high 28 games and in those games averaged 18 points and 8.4 assists on 49% shooting from the floor. He also made 50 three-pointers.
With Lowry reportedly not happy with the current situation in Houston keeping Goran Dragic would seem to be a priority, but the two sides are far apart in negotiations at the moment. So Dragic is out testing the free agent waters. Earlier this week he was in Phoenix to meet with his former team, who certainly put its best foot forward.
