Dragic is a free agent in the summer…
The Phoenix Suns reportedly want a first-round Draft pick in return for guard Goran Dragic as nerves build over whether or not he will stay with the franchise.
Dragic says every team is a free agency option: Slovenian star considering all his options.
Rockets interested in Dragic: Deron Williams also in their sights.
Dragic would consider Knicks: New York still on the table despite miserable season.
Dragic is set for free agency this summer and will not be short of suitors, while he has also expressed concern with how the three-man guard rotation will continue to work in Phoenix.
The Suns opted to sign Isaiah Thomas last summer to add to their back-court options with Dragic and Eric Bledsoe, and it is felt as though the Slovenian has been the one who has suffered the most.
The Houston Rockets have been linked with a move previously while Dragic has insisted in recent months that every team is an option for him this summer, and it appears as though Phoenix might be getting a little nervous about their ability to hold on to him.

Hearing Suns want a first-rounder for Goran Dragic and, rest assured, they’ll get it. Rockets got to be tempted.

Dragic is a highly talented player that arguably should be able to attract more than just one first round Draft pick, and teams will certainly be interested because they will have a great chance at re-signing him in the off-season after he helps them with a playoff push or whatever it may be that they are chasing to end the campaign.
The 28-year-old is averaging 16.2 points, 4.1 assists 3.6 rebounds per game this season with the points and rebounds numbers up on his career stats.
As a result, it shouldn’t be too difficult for Phoenix to find a trade partner if they really are willing to part with their shooting guard.
