[quote]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.

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.

Also of note, Dragic hit his stride in the final two months of play last year and that was with a mediocre and semi-talented Rockets team. To be honest, I don't see the Rockets being much more talented than us; they just gave more effort.

Anyway, Dragic had 27 straight games where he hit double figures in the last two months of the regular season; and in those two months seven double-double's and averaged 16.95 points per game.

He was pretty incredible for the Rockets down towards the end of the year.

Rumor is he is looking for 10 million/year. Would you still like it then?

Ten mil a year is absurd, I'm in the six to eight range. However, we have to get to the floor somehow. After signing MKG and Taylor along with the qualifying offers to Augustin and Brown, I believe we will be around eight to ten million.

Apparently the offer has already been submitted according to SBNation.

Never. Eric Gordon got a max deal of about 14 mil a year. No way any team will give Goran a 10 mil/yr.
