Goran Dragic said that he will keep an open mind in free agency, and that he would even consider a return to Houston.
"Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA," Dragic said. "When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself." It's no secret that Dragic has drawn plenty of interest from several teams, as he has really taken a step forward in his development in recent years. However, despite all the rumors it doesn't appear that Phoenix is willing to trade him at this point in the season and they will likely have to risk letting him walk in free agency without getting anything in return. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation closely. Jan 25 - 9:16 AM

Date:

Goran Dragic did not play down the stretch on Friday, finishing with two points and two assists in 18 minutes.

There's talk of coach Jeff Hornacek benching Dragic because of his technical foul and a new team rule that says a player will be benched after a tech. Dragic should be fine for his next game, but he will have his bad games due to the Suns' depth at guard.
Jan 24 - 1:01 AM

Goran Dragic scored 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and a steal in the Suns' 115-100 win over the Lakers on Monday.

Dragic and the other guards have steadily improved as the season has gone on, and he's returning top-50 value after a really shaky start. Eric Bledsoe added 17 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two threes in the win.
Jan 20 - 3:43 AM

Goran Dragic scored a team-high 21 points against the Wolves during a 110-99 win on Friday with five rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

The Dragon is breathing fire again. Over his last five, Dragic averaged 18.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 steals on 56.3 percent from the field. His minutes are back up to around 35 and his fantasy owners should feel a little more comfortable about starting him. He won't be as great as last season, though.
Jan 17 - 1:50 AM

Goran Dragic fouled out of Sunday's game in 33 minutes, finishing with only nine points on 4-of-11 shooting.

He had three assists, one steal and a rare block to salvage some value for his fantasy owners, but this was a sub-par performance against the Grizzlies' stout defense. Backcourt partner Eric Bledsoe wasn't much better with 11 points on 5-of-15 shooting, and he got away with an egregious offensive basket interference which allowed Phoenix to force the first overtime. The Suns will look to avoid a losing streak when they host the slumping Cavs on Tuesday.
Jan 11 - 9:24 PM

The Rockets are reportedly looking to make an upgrade at the point guard position, and they have expressed interest in Goran Dragic and Deron Williams (ribs).

Williams is injured and given his ridiculous contract, it would be difficult to orchestrate a trade in which they weren't giving up too much, making Dragic a much more likely target. Dragic had his coming out party while playing for head coach Kevin McHale, and him leaving the crowded rotation in Phoenix could be viewed as a good thing, while it would really hurt the value of Patrick Beverley. Things are in the rumor stages right now, but this will be something to monitor moving forward.

Jan 9 - 1:27 PM

Goran Dragic hit 7-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, eight rebounds and three assists in Wednesday's overtime loss to OKC.

Dragic and Eric Bledsoe are playing well right now, as Isaiah Thomas struggles off the bench. Thomas will likely get hot again at some point, but until it happens, Dragic is all systems go.

Goran Dragic dropped 25 points in Tuesday's win over the Mavericks, adding four assists, three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He recently said that his back was still a bit tight, but it didn't appear that way on Tuesday. Dragic was all over the place and it didn't look like he was limited at all. Regardless, owners should still check back for updates because he may be pretty sore after logging 39 minutes. For now, keep him active in all lineups.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 12:23:00 AM

Goran Dragic's back is still not 100 percent healthy.

"Sometimes, I feel a little bit tight, but that's normal," Dragic said. Jeff Hornacek added, "Goran is probably hurt still, but he's not going to tell us because he wants to play." A lingering back issue is a reason for fantasy owners to have concern, but it doesn't sound serious at this point.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 12:50:00 PM

Goran Dragic will keep an open mind if he enters free agency in the offseason.

"It's still early to talk about that," Dragic said. "Right now, I want to be 100 percent focused on the team and try to help the team and players. In the offseason, I'm going to probably sit down with my family first and with my agent and try to explore all the options. From there, I'll try to choose the one best for me." There is no doubt that Dragic is an elite point guard, and he will definitely draw some major interest from several different teams. It would not be surprising to see some teams try to pry him away at the trade deadline if the Suns don't feel like Dragic will return, but for now nothing is close to developing and we will pass along updates as needed.

Goran Dragic had a sub-par game against the Knicks on Saturday with 10 points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

He was barely utilized in halfcourt sets and had a major chunk of his buckets in transition. Dragic is playing more with Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe a bit more and he should be a little better than this. Still, he's not going to come close to his fantasy value from last season. Additionally, CBS Sports reports that Dragic is the least likely to be traded.

After missing two games with a lower back strain, Goran Dragic said his stamina wasn't there during the second half of Wednesday's win over the Hornets.

Dragic only scored four points in the second half of the win after pouring in 16 in the first half, but it was a good sign for fantasy owners to see him back on the court nevertheless. With his back issues seemingly behind him, the 28-year-old will be able to put full games together and should provide his fantasy owners with top-50 value for the rest of the season.

Goran Dragic looked terrific in his return against the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He missed the previous two games due to a strained back and was his aggressive self tonight. Dragic was really turning it on while Isaiah Thomas was out earlier this month and that might be due to his mentality and not because of the personnel. He should be able to flirt with top-50 value.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Goran Dragic (back) will start on Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

After missing the previous two games, Dragic is back and his owners can safely activate him in their lineups. He has a favorable matchup against the Hornets, and should be in for a nice night if his back doesn't flare up on him. Gerald Green will shift back to the bench on Wednesday, while Isaiah Thomas' value takes a slight hit with this news.

Goran Dragic (back) is probable for Wednesday's game after going through shootaround.

He has missed the last two games after his back flared up on him during Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but he appeared to turn the corner and should be good to go Wednesday. Dragic has a favorable matchup against the reeling Hornets, and owners will want to get him active in their lineups. Gerald Green will likely shift back to the bench Wednesday and Isaiah Thomas will also see a decrease in minutes.
