  • Pass on Nash, sign Dragic!

    07/03/2012 11:35EST Bill Ingram:

    Houston’s meeting with point guard Goran Dragic didn’t go so well, with the Rockets essentially telling his camp, “Good luck with that,” regarding their number. Sources close to the situation tell HOOPSWORLD Dragic’s camp was asking for $10 million in the first year of a multi-year contract, and that’s not a number Houston is willing to match. It’s not out of the question that Dragic and the Rockets could revisit the situation, but only if Dragic finds that teams like Dallas, Toronto, Portland and others who have shown interest aren’t willing to pony up the dough.

    Younger, cheaper and, although the sample size is small with only a limited peek at him as a starter, looks to be pretty damn good.

    I'm a Steve Nash fan but I can't come to terms with committing 3 years and $36M to the end of his career rather than to a SF upgrade. Even if I combine his possible contribution as a mentor for Bayless and Uzoh I can't see how this move fits the rebuild model of the Raptors, which is going well in my opinion.
