Some claim Suns are ready to deal him, others suggest he will re-sign…
Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic faces an uncertain future with the franchise, although speculation suggests that the two parties will meet on Tuesday to talk.
Suns want first round pick for Dragic: Phoenix could be tempted to deal guard.
Dragic says every team is a free agency option: Slovenian ace open to leaving.
Dragic would consider Knicks: New York still attractive to free agents.
Reports have linked Dragic with an exit for months given that he will become a free agent at the end of the season and has openly admitted that he will consider his options elsewhere.
In addition, the three-man guard rotation alongside Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe has arguably had a negative impact on his game, as even though the numbers suggest he is still as influential, he is competing for a spot with two other highly talented individuals.
As a result, he has told the media that he will look around the league for a new spot this summer and so the Suns could be forced into a situation whereby they have to trade him in order to avoid losing him for nothing in a few months time.
That is the opinion of Howard Beck of Bleacher Report, who insists that Phoenix “were active on the phones this weekend” as although they want to re-sign him, they are nervous that he will bolt in July.
Meanwhile, Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports insists that the Suns are inclined to keep the 28-year-old, while Adrian Wojnarowski added that Dragic’s agent will meet with team officials on Tuesday to discuss a new deal.
If Phoenix are not willing to offer Dragic a max contract, they will need to consider their trade options as previous speculation has suggested that they would part with him for a first round Draft pick.
It is difficult to see which teams would be interested in making that move at this stage if the general consensus is that Dragic will move on in the summer.
