The Bobcats are said to be preparing an offer for unrestricted free agent Rockets point guard Goran Dragic.
It's hard to imagine Dragic playing in Charlotte, but it certainly seems possible now, if the money is right. He's also being targeted by several other teams, including the Mavericks, Suns and Raptors, but wherever he lands, Dragic is nearly guaranteed to be a starting NBA point guard next season. He played well enough last season to lose his sleeper status in most fantasy circles, but will be a highly popular PG pick if he lands in the right situation.

Ken Berger: The Bobcats have been in touch with Dragic's agent and will be making an offer, league source says.Twitter
We already submitted a qualifying offer to Augustin, so if we land Dragic; we could possibly have a damn good group of point guards.
PG- Goran Dragic, D.J. Augustin, Kemba Walker
However, if we land Dragic and someone decides to submit an offer sheet for Augustin; we will most likely not match that offer.
Dragic averaged 11.7 points per game, 5.3 assists per game, 2.5 rebounds per game, and 1.3 steals per game last year with the Houston Rockets.
Dragic also recorded eight double-double's.
