The Phoenix Suns and Slovenian basketball federation have an agreement in place to keep Goran Dragic fresh during the World Cup of Basketball.
The agreement will limit Dragic to one practice per day and no more than 25 minutes of playing time in exhibition games. Furthermore, the agreement stipulated that the 28-year-old would only play in five of Slovenia's 16 exhibition games leading up to the World Cup of Basketball. Coming comes off a breakout 2013-14 season during which he averaged 20.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals, Dragic should be one of the top 10 point guards on draft boards heading into 2014-15 drafts.

The Pacers reportedly offered Roy Hibbert, Chris Copeland, and some cash for Goran Dragic.

The move makes sense for Indiana after likely losing Paul George for the entire 2014-15 season, but Phoenix probably couldn't contain their laughter. Dragic added that Phoenix is not interested in taking the deal. As of right now, it appears that nothing is imminent.

The Indiana Pacers have engaged the Phoenix Suns in trade talks for Goran Dragic.

This move could make some sense as the Pacers are looking for a more consistent option a point guard after an up-and-down season from George Hill. Dragic is coming off a career year, but the Suns won't likely be able to afford both he and restricted free agent Eric Bledsode if Dragic turns down his player option for the 2015-16 season. It's currently unclear what the Pacers are offering the Suns for Dragic, but they would presumably have to dip into the core of their roster to keep the Suns from hanging up the phone.

Suns owner Robert Sarver said that he'd be willing to exceed the salary cap "for the right roster."

The Suns had the third-lowest payroll in the league last year, at $55.6 million, but their near-miss of a playoff spot may inspire Sarver to open up his checkbook in free agency. Phoenix holds picks Nos. 14, 18 and 50 in Thursday's draft, so for now they'll look to fill roster needs with rookie talent.

Goran Dragic has agreed to play for the Slovenia national team during the 2014 World Championship.

"This year's NBA season in Phoenix was both physically and mentally very tough, while I was plagued by problems with a damaged ankle," said Dragic. "At first I really wanted to take the time just for rehabilitation and family, but only after one month of break, I gained power, and it's easier now to take a final decision... It is a great honor for me to represent the Slovenia in Spain and unite the fans for a common success of the Slovenian team." While the Suns would probably prefer Dragic take that time to rest, it is ultimately Dragic's decision. He is young, and barring an unforeseen injury, he will be a fine draft choice going into next season.

Goran Dragic was named the NBA's Most Improved Player for 2013-14 on Wednesday.

Dragic averaged numerous career-highs with 20.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game, though his brilliant season wasn't enough for the Suns to make the playoffs. He posted a True Shooting percentage of 60.4 percent which trailed only Stephen Curry among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game, and he's poised for another huge season with the Suns before likely opting for free agency in 2015. Lance Stephenson finished second in MIP voting, while Anthony Davis finished third.

Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play in the Suns' season finale on Wednesday.

Dragic has been playing on an injured ankle for the past few games and he was a DNP candidate the moment the Suns were eliminated from the playoffs on Monday. He'll finish the season with numerous career-highs, averaging 20.3 points on 50.5 percent shooting, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals.
Apr 15 - 4:22 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) played in the Suns' 97-91 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and five steals in 37 minutes.

We're going to put Dragic on the injury report after the Suns were knocked out of the playoffs with the loss, as he's on the shortlist of NBA players most deserving of an early rest. Eric Bledsoe added 13 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and a three, and the loss closes the book on one of the league's better stories of the season. Everybody thought the Suns were going to be tank, but instead they improved the franchise at every level. Now it's on Robert Sarver not to mess it up.
Apr 15 - 1:35 AM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said on Monday that Goran Dragic's ankle is still sore but "he's going to play no matter how it feels at this point."

He definitely wasn't at his best in Saturday's tough loss and he won't be 100 percent in Monday's enormous game against the Grizzlies in Phoenix. The Suns will need to win tonight, win on Wednesday and need the Grizzlies to lose on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks. If the Suns don't get it done tonight, there's a good chance Dragic sits out on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 2:18 PM

Goran Dragic played through an ankle injury on Saturday, but wasn't great, hitting just 6-of-18 shots and zero 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal.

He was having his way against Jose Calderon, but It was the Eric Bledsoe show tonight, as he had 29 points in a tough loss. Look for Dragic to continue to try to play through his injury, as the Suns are in a dogfight with Memphis for the final playoff spot.
Apr 12 - 11:53 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) will start vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

He has been receiving a ton of treatment to get ready for this game and he's certainly not 100 percent. Dragic was getting ice on his ankle during warmups, so he might not be able to play his normal playing time. This game is huge for the Suns and coach Jeff Hornacek will basically have a full arsenal at his disposal. Gerald Green should still get plenty of run on the bench.
Apr 12 - 7:33 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) is expected to return vs. the Mavericks on Saturday, according to beat writer Paul Coro.

Owners should check back for official confirmation after the Suns warm up in Dallas, but it appears Dragic will be ready to play following a one-game absence. If he does suit up, Gerald Green will shift back to a smaller role off the bench.
Apr 12 - 12:03 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

As far as the playoff picture goes, this is easily the biggest news of the day. Dragic has played like an All-Star all season and the Suns really need this game, which just got even tougher with Tony Parker returning. Gerald Green will get the start and have a major opportunity to post a big line next to Eric Bledsoe.
Apr 11 - 7:21 PM

Goran Dragic has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Spurs due to a sprained left ankle.

Ouch. The Suns have huge game tonight for their playoff chances and they look like they'll be without their best player. Dragic said his ankle is getting better and mentioned he will play if his ankle allows it. He has sprained his left ankle three times this season and has been getting treatment twice per day while also sleeping with an electronic stimulation machine on Thursday night. If all this effort still keeps him out, Gerald Green will start and become a must-play fantasy option.
Apr 11 - 3:40 PM

Goran Dragic is questionable to play on Friday due to a sprained left ankle.

"I think [Dragic] will want to play," said coach Jeff Hornacek. "It'll be a question with him, 'Do you think you can go and go hard or is it going to aggravate it more?'" The Suns play the Spurs on Friday before a crucial matchup with the Mavericks on Saturday, a back-to-back set which may determine the Suns' playoff fate, and Dragic's injury comes at a very inopportune time. He will not participate in Friday's shootaround and if he can't start Gerald Green will take over at SG with Eric Bledsoe at PG.
