    Unbelievable. We took a player who was an All NBA Third team and pissed him off within months.

    I really hope signing Isaiah Thomas was worth it.

    The Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat and New York Knicks are among preferred destinations for Goran Dragic, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

    I'd rather let him walk for nothing than trade him to LAL, NYK or Miami. They have absolutely nothing that I'd want.

    I'd take a first round pick from ANY of them.

    Knowing the suns it's going to be a protected pick we won't see for 5 years. Knicks and Lakers both are horrible there not going to give up an unprotected 1 this year

    The Suns can still get value for Dragic, even w/ this leaked info. I don't buy that his "trade value" is lowered from this info ...

    Sure, now the Suns have to trade him, but it'll still be a competition between teams to make the best offer to the Suns. The Suns also aren't forced to send him to a team on his "preferred list" - A team would still value Dragic just an expiring, + to potentially sign him after this year ... If the info wasn't leaked, a team would be some-what reluctant to trade for him knowing he could walk after this year ... W/ the leak, "repeat previous sentence".

    The Suns are still in a position to listen to the best offers and trade him to any team they want (could possibly even get more now - after the leak - from a team on Dragic's "list" because there's a greater chance he'll re-sign there ...)

    Some people will blame/fault the Suns for getting so many guards and driving Dragic out. I'll take the positive approach and credit the Suns for acquiring so many guards w/ the knowledge/possibility that Dragic wouldn't resign !!! ... I'm happy Goodwin/Ennis now have a chance now, probably starting next season, to really break through

    Dude even the GM has said on record the roster is really unbalanced and pretty much admitted he messed up.

    Back during the Colangelo days, the team found ways to make just about every player happy. Now, they've managed to piss off people to the point that they want out and no free agents want to come to Phoenix.

    Awesome job, Suns.

    Here is one of the reasons a team would be willing to trade for Dragic. They can fend off competitors by paying him more money.

    it's hard to argue with this.

    Gonna be hard to sell this team as a FA destination after this. I'm sure others will say no, but that's gonna be a hard argument to make when a generally well liked guy, coming off an ALL-NBA season tells his team to shove it up their ass one year later.
