Anyone think Dwight might have concerns about his health? Maybe he knows he's got enough dirt on Prokhorov to get a max extension out of him regardless of how well he returns from injury..

Dwight is immature, yes. But... Umm, have you guys not noticed we also got a big fat crybaby in Bynum also?

Now, if it's Dragic at $9M (which we can do with TPE) or Nelson at mini-MLE, I'll take Nelson.



Far more likely tht we get Nelson on the cheap than Dragic on the cheap.

I agree with this. Getting Howard has the danger of actually getting a 1year loaner.
At least the big baby named Bynum is locked up for a few more years.

He wants $10M per??? :man4: :man10: Apparently, everyone is catching the Chris Childs syndrome--playing well for half a season and getting a fat paycheck.

Whatever the Lakers do in the summer, they need to land a legit point guard like Dragic. Obviously, Sessions isn't the answer

Dragic - 11.7 ppg, 5.3 apg, 2.5 rpg, 46% from the field, 33% from the three point line, 27 minutes a game, 28 starts

Sessions - 11.3 ppg, 5.5 apg, 3.3 rpg, 43% from the field, 44% from the three point line, 27 minutes a game, 23 starts

Those are their regular season stats (with Sessions stat's including his time with the Cavs). How is Dragic a legit point guard but Sessions isn't? Keep in mind that when Sessions stepped into the starting line-up, he was an afterthought in the offense. On the other hand, Dragic had to replace Houston's best player in Lowry so he became a focal point for their offense.

Personally, I'd take Dragic over Sessions on this team, but I'd put them in the same tier. Both have shown flashes of good play on mediocre teams. Neither has ever been able to put together a complete season of stellar play on a winning basketball team.

Dragic is a better shooter that's it. Sessions is a better driver. They both suck on defense.

Our offense would be fine.. Dwight & Josh 2a & 2b is better than what most teams can put out there.. It'll be interesting to see Durant try to go off on us with Josh on him

Sessions is probably thinking damn I'm better at driving to the basket than Dragic, maybe I should ask for about 7-8 million a year...


Great.....Thanks Dragic for trying to set the market for your level of PG's

Dragic will not get 7-8 mill a year. If he does, I will personally crap all over a copy of the new CBA, and send it to David Stern.

As long as the only 2 PG's we have on the roster are Blake and Morris, the Lakers are going to be interested in just about everybody.

Damn he might get that $10 mil from Phoenix. Doesnt look like hes going back to Houston

http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/47057/sources-dragic-return-to-rockets-unlikely


The Houston Rockets are pessimistic about their chances of re-signing point guard Goran Dragic with the sides far apart in negotiations, according to sources close to the process.

The Rockets met with Dragic on Monday in Houston and were hopeful of reaching terms quickly with the Slovenian, who averaged 16.3 points and 7.3 assists in 32 games after the All-Star break following an injury to Kyle Lowry.

But Dragic left town without a deal, sources said, leading one source close to the process to say that the lefty's expected return to the Rockets is "not going to happen." Dragic is scheduled Tuesday to visit the Phoenix Suns, who dealt him to the Rockets at the 2011 trade deadline.

Dragic is said to be seeking an annual salary of at least $10 million and, according to sources familiar with his thinking, expects to be installed as the starter wherever he lands.

:man10: man talk about striking out for Houston...

Kyle Lowry gets sick of the coach and they don't necessarily plan for him in the future... Miss!
They tried to swing the picks for Dwight... Miss!
Sign a great big man; get Asik... Miss!
Re-sign Dragic... Miss!

That's already 4 strikes. If only they were bowling.

They are so all over the place. They already have Morris from Kansas and Patrick Patterson (from the two previous drafts when they had picks in the teens)and then they draft two more Power Forwards who are tweeners with their picks in the teens again. What the eff Lol

I don't know. It might happen. The PG market is tough to figure right now. The only PG contract offer that's not an option or Qualifying Offer is a 3 year, $36M offer to Nash.

Dragic is asking too much. Houston should just let him walk and patch things up with Lowry and forget all that trade nonsense,

Dragic is gone. Rockets beat writer

https://twitter.com/#!/Jonathan_Feigen

As @ESPNSteinLine mentioned last night, little chance of Dragic return to Rockets. Source: "Goran’s not coming back. Just not happening."

Sides so far apart on contract, meeting yesterday ended w/ thanks and good luck kind of exchange. Still, Dragic hasn't gotten that deal yet.
