Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic has conceded that he would consider a switch to the New York Knicks in free agency next summer.
The Knicks have endured a miserable season so far as they sit at 5-25 which barely keeps them above the Philadelphia 76ers at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
Derek Fisher has struggled in his first year in charge while Phil Jackson hasn’t seen the progress he had expected with the triangle offense as a lack of talent on the roster holds the franchise back.
However, he did receive a boost on Sunday as Suns star Dragic conceded that he would still consider a switch to New York next summer which essentially suggests that Jackson and the Knicks remain a draw for free agents despite their desperate struggles this year.
“Oh yeah, definitely,” said Dragic, according to the New York Daily News.
“You know Phil, he was a great coach. He won so many titles and he was coaching so many great players that of course it’s interesting and I would love working with him. Because probably he’s making all the moves — I’m not sure — but he knows what the team needs and what direction the team needs to go. In the past probably, he makes some decisions, who the Lakers bring in and the Chicago Bulls and [he] did an amazing job.”
Dragic added that he was happy in Phoenix but admitted that it will be a difficult decision for him next year as he looks to compete for championships and play on a big stage.
However, he may well grow frustrated with life in Phoenix with the current three-man guard system which gives Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas a lot of the ball, and with his ability to run an offense and professional manner, he may well be a perfect fit for the Knicks moving forward.
