Suns Reaction To Dragic 'Leaving NBA' Quote

I exchanged a few text messages with a couple of people in the Suns organization who had not seen the story on the Greek web site about Dragic possibly leaving the NBA after his current contract was complete.

There was speculation about the quality of the translation or that he was perhaps just keeping European fans and media happy. Either way, there’s no immediate cause for alarm.

The Suns do not seem to have any intention of letting Dragic leave.

And considering the $1 million he paid out of his own pocket to buy out of his Spanish contract to come to the NBA and fulfill his dream, it really seems unlikely that Dragic would be headed back to a European club so soon.

If Goran has another year like last season and continues to improve his game even more, he will be in line for a large contract extension from the Suns.

Goran’s never expressed any dissatisfaction with living in the U.S., playing in the NBA or his role on the team. In fact, he seems to be one of the happiest people I’ve known in a long time.

We will continue to try and get a definitive answer from Dragic, but in the meantime, Goran fans should avoid premature panic.
