Goran Dragic made 9-of-14 from the field for 20 points against the Spurs on Thursday, adding one rebound, six assists, three steals, no turnovers and one 3-pointer.
The Suns could look to go with a three-guard lineup, but it wouldn't really affect Dragic anyway outside of maybe a faster pace. He's safe to draft in the third round and was still a top-40 player last year even while Eric Bledsoe was in the lineup. Oct 17 - 1:01 AM

Goran Dragic played 25 minutes in Wednesday's start, but hit just 2-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for six points, one rebound, one assist and two steals.

We're not too worried about Dragic at this point, but it is a bit disturbing to know that Isaiah Thomas (18 points) and Eric Bledsoe (15 points) are on the same team, not to mention Gerald Green (13 points). Dragic is the starting point guard, without a doubt, but Thomas could eat up some of his minutes and production this year. Dragic is still the point guard you want to own in Phoenix.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he'd like for his team to push the pace more this season.

"I don't think we take it out quick enough. We're great when we get a miss," Hornacek said. His Suns ranked eighth in pace last season and had a league-high 17.8 percent of their point total come in fast-break, so they're capable of being the fastest team in the NBA. Plus, they also play Markieff Morris at center and run a lot of small-ball lineups. Fantasy owners should probably have at least one Sun on their target list.

Eric Bledsoe's five-year, $70 million contract shouldn't hamper the Suns from re-signing point guard Goran Dragic for the long term.

Dragic has already said he will opt out of his contract after next season, but the Suns are confident they'll be able to get a deal done once that happens. "We don't have many long-term commitments," GM Ryan McDonough said. "We have every intention of keeping Goran in a Suns uniform as long as possible. We know he loves Phoenix. There's plenty of money for Goran next year or when it comes up. We fully anticipate taking care of him."

Goran Dragic said that he plans on opting out of his current contract after the 2014-15 season in order to quickly re-sign with the Phoenix Suns.

Speaking at the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, Dragic said, "Got a very interesting position with the club. Guess I'll break the contract and sign a new one. As I spoke [to the Suns], I immediately during the first week, when the market opens, sign and I will therefore be calm." Dragic is coming 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, and should be one of the top 10 point guards on draft boards heading into fantasy drafts.

Goran Dragic didn't have his best game during Saturday's win over the Dominican Republic, turning the ball over six times to go with 12 points, two boards, six assists, and one steal.

He missed all four attempts from beyond the arc and his entire team struggled from there, making a total of just six treys on 26 attempts. The Slovenians were attacking the rim quite a bit due to the lack of size of the Dominicans, but they won't be able to do that when they play Team USA on Monday.
Sep 6 - 4:01 PM

Goran Dragic shot 0-of-5 from the three-point line in Slovenia's loss to Lithuania in the FIBA World Cup.

He scored 12 points and added two rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the loss. Slovenia only managed two points in the final quarter, squandering a seven point lead. Dragic will get a chance to atone for his poor shooting against the Dominican Republic in the round of 16.
Sep 4 - 5:24 PM

Goran Dragic carried Slovenia over South Korea in Tuesday's 89-72 win, scoring 22 points with two boards, four assists and two 3-pointers.

His efficient ways from the 2013-14 season are carrying over into FIBA, shooting 10-of-14 from the field to help Slovenia get to 3-0. The Suns do have some personnel changes coming with Isaiah Thomas, but it won't affect Dragic negatively enough to matter.
Sep 2 - 8:00 PM

Goran Dragic scored 18 points to go along with six assists, four turnovers, and a steal during Slovenia's stomping of Mexico.

Slovenia severely outplayed Mexico in the lopsided 89-68 victory, lead by Goran, and brother Zoran (22 points). Goran is coming off a fantastic 2013-14 campaign in which he received the award for Most Improved Player after averaging 20.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 1.4 steals. Those across-the-board numbers make Dragic a top-10 point guard heading into this year's fantasy drafts.
Aug 31 - 1:57 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 10:35 AM

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.
Aug 10 - 12:49 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 10:44 AM

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.
Jun 26 - 7:14 PM

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.
May 26 - 5:23 PM

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.
