Goran Dragic has elaborated on his decision to leave the Phoenix Suns by trade or as a free agent, stating that his relationship with the Arizona franchise is beyond repair.
The Slovenian guard was drafted by the Suns back in 2008, but despite over six years with the team, he feels promises made on his role in the side have been broken.
“I don’t trust them anymore,” Dragic told reporters. “It happens too many times. Two, three times.
“They give promises, OK. It’s hard. But at the same time, I wish them all the best.
“They were great to me the past five years. I’m always going to have a good memory about Phoenix fans and the city. I just hit that point of my career that it’s better for me and my family to move on.”
Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas were recently signed by the Suns to battle for the role of playmaker – a role Dragic felt was his to lose after the departure of Steve Nash – and the 28 year-old clearly feels threatened by the competition.
Despite the Suns signing his brother Zoran to join him at Talking Sports Resort Arena, the elder Dragic appears to have set his mind to moving on.
