I guess Goran's time in Phoenix and Houston has made him forget his roots of ljubljana, Slovenia (Yugoslavia).Raptorfan2012
What is the Rocket’s stance on keeping Goran Dragic; is he a must-have? What are the chances that the Raptors can land him as their new starting PG for $7-8 million per season?
Kyle Lowry is the must-have. Houston won’t pay Dragic, so I think he’ll be elsewhere. I talked to him about the Raptors, as they want him desperately, and he said he couldn’t take the weather. But we’ll see. Money keeps you warm!
With this being a weak draft for PG's, I see the free agent market for them being raised. I like Dragic but not enough to over spend. I think he ends up in Portland.
I wonder if Dragic realizes that NBA games are played INDOORS....even in Canada :|
I'd do 4 years 32 million for Dragic
wait raps want dragic desperately what?
I'm always weary of contract year numbers. I'd rather roll the dice with Calderon for 1 more year than commit long term to Dragic.
From Stephen Brotherston's HoopsWorld.com chat today:
Raptors have free agent targets – the Goran Dragic name is gaining traction – but we need to see the draft before getting a better feel for who they’ll target. There is a good chance of a draft day or draft related deal.ALEX
Great chats,RAPS. fan. Which FA BC. will be targeting in the summer?and if draft day 3 best SF are gone, who they will draft?
Solid rumor that Colangelo is interested in Goran Dragic as his PG of the future. Hits the hot buttons – 25 years-old, can play defense, likes to pass a bit – and Houston is thought to be cheap when it comes to protecting FAs. C. Lee, RFA in Houston would also solidify the Raps at the wing.
Beal, Robinson, B.A.P., or wheel & deal
I do like Kendall Marshall if the Raps fall in the draft.
It seems the Dragic drum is beating louder in Raptor land.
I wonder what Brotherston's sources are (other than the Ingram piece referenced above).
Hold up, Courtney Lee would solidify the Raptors on the wing? I like Courtney Lee but I'm not sure he's a starter and the Raptors are in dire need of a legit starter on the wing... That said how is Lee solidifying the wing? I'd love to see him play here but he's not going to fix the wing by himself. He would be a nice player coming off the bench and pushing DeRozan in practice though.
I'm fearful of Dragic coming here. I'm fearful this is the kind of player Colangelo takes a Hail Mary pass on and over pays. If he's signed for 2nd string dollars then bring it on but if he's due for a big payday then please just say no.
Nah I'd take Dragic over Bayless.
I wouldn't spend stupid money on him though.
When dragic comes to visit in the summer he'll realize the it isnt so bad here
Just say no to 4-years, 32 million. That's utterly insane.
Dont underestimate BC's convincing techniques(if there is such a thing). He'll bring Dragic here if he really wants to
