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.

The Charlotte Bobcats have prepared an offer for unrestricted free agent point guardGoran Dragic, according to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger.


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.

Assists: 14
Rebounds: 7
Steals: 4
Blocks: 1

Dragic would be a huge boost for this team.

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.

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

If we get him for him for a good price, I will be pleasantly surprised and extremely happy. However, I would still be thrilled to have Dragic even if we do overpay him (a little) because of his impressive leadership skills; which is something Augustin doesn't have and never will have and something that Kemba hasn't acquired yet.

if at 10mil wonder what amount of yrs, if its only 2 or 3. im more for it becuase if he fails out we can get out and not be too stuck with that contract. i like him as a player though, havnt seen too much of him, cpanthers 8789 how would you compare his defense? i know his offense and passing just never watched him enough on d.
