Cats making hard run at Goran Dragic, submit offer!

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.

Yahoo sports reports that Dragic and Higgins spoke tonight.

I expect them to flat out offer more money than the Suns and Raptors and will most likely sign Dragic tomorrow and Jamison Friday.

It certainly would be exciting and the biggest FA acquisition in our history, but I'm weary of Dragic. He has always flashed brilliance but ever displayed it consistently, and I just don't think that's worth 8-10 mil a year.

Have no idea about his defense, you'll have to ask God.

I have only seen Dragic a few times but from what I hear; he is an overall solid player.

I'm also kind of bummed that we aren't giving Kemba the chance to start out right next year.

Kemba could learn from a guy like Dragic though, as where in my opinion; Kemba is clearly a better point guard than Augustin and really has nothing to learn there.

Dragic has a lot of intensity and is a great leader from what I can tell. That is something that neither Augustin or Kemba possess or greatly possess right now.

And it appears we are the frontrunners:

Marc J. Spears: Bobcats making hard run at HOU free agent G Goran Dragic, source tells Y! Dragic spoke to CHA exec Rod Higgins tonight. Hou,PHX still in mix Twitter

Pair that with the fact that the Rockets are meeting with Jeremy Lin and that the Suns have signed Beasley and Gordon and it sounds like we're going to win out on the Dragic sweepstakes.

Again, I have my reservations, but I'd be excited about the potential. This also probably guarantees another 1st round pick coming in because we'll most likely be trading DJ or Hendo.

If we sign Dragic, someone will probably submit an offer sheet to Augustin; because they know we won't match it.

Probably no first round pick out of it.

Another thing that is really intriguing about Dragic is his amazing speed. He seems to have the same amount of speed as Walker. It looks like Dunlap is trying to get two point guards in the system that kind of play the same way, so the Cats can just play one way with both point guards instead of trying to alternate between systems.

can Kemba play the 2 at all? I could see him as a Jason Terry 6th man type player for sure.
