The Phoenix Suns need a point guard this offseason, and they'll address that problem in one of two ways.
- They'll resign Steve Nash to a deal that should probably keep him in Phoenix for the rest of his career.
- They'll find a replacement for Nash in free agency among the many solid options out there.
If Nash goes though, they might have a tailor-made replacement ready to assume his role. In fact, one such player will be available who has already spent plenty of time backing up Nash as a former Phoenix Sun. Sean Deveney of the Sporting News has more on the possibility of Goran Dragic returning to Phoenix as the new starter.
Assuming that is not Houston, a source told Sporting News, Dragic could wind up in a familiar surrounding anyway—back in Phoenix. Should the Suns lose Nash in free agency, Phoenix is expected to make a push to re-sign Dragic and give him the reins in coach Alvin Gentry’s offense. That would suit Dragic.
"I learned a lot in Phoenix, I had a very good time there," he said. "I don’t know what is going to happen, but that is an organization I know, obviously, and they helped me a lot."
Dragic averaged around seven points and three assists per game with Phoenix before finally getting a chance to start with Houston after Kyle Lowry got injured.
