Asked if the Rockets would be at a disadvantage because they could not reach agreement on a deal in 2012, Dragic said, “Oh, no. No. Nothing like that. “Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA. When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself.” Houston Chronicle

“Archie doesn’t want out of Phoenix,” Goodwin’s agent, Charles Briscoe, told RealGM on Wednesday. “His words have been twisted in a recent article. We’re willing to wait for Archie’s opportunity. Any player in the NBA wants to play immediately, but we understand that Phoenix is in a playoff push. If we have to wait for next year, we’re OK with that. We know he will get his opportunity, and he’ll be ready.” RealGM

Well, the former L.A. Cleveland High and USC product grew up idolizing the Lakers and remembers how customary it became for them to host championship parades. But the man who playfully labeled himself this season as the NBA’s best all-time shooter also argued he will play a significant role this offseason in helping the Lakers attract marquee free agents. “I told Goran Dragic on the court, ‘You might be my teammate next year.’” Young told the L.A. News Group shortly after the Lakers’ loss on Monday to the Phoenix Suns. “I’ll talk to Marc (Gasol.) Me and him are cool. Kevin Love, I’ll talk to him.” Los Angeles Daily News

Three point guards on the floor at the same time might cause some to raise eyebrows. Last summer, the idea made Isaiah Thomas raise his hand and say "pick me." "That's what I signed here for, was to play with those other two guards and to cause havoc on both ends of the floor playing with Goran and Bledsoe," Thomas said on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. NBA.com

The Suns have a logjam at the guard position that isn't making anyone happy. Phoenix got Isaiah Thomas in a sign-and-trade with the Kings last summer, adding him to a group that already included Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Gerald Green. It drafted Tyler Ennis, signed guard Zoran Dragic (Goran's brother) and recently added another wing, Reggie Bullock, in a trade with the Clippers. The moves puzzled Goodwin. “I don’t know what they’re doing,” Goodwin said. “Honestly, I really don’t. I guess they know what they’re doing — I can just play ball and let them make the decisions. I don’t know what the purpose is for it, but there is nothing I can do about it.” Sporting News

The Houston Rockets, where he had his first breakout season, would love to bring the Slovenian star back for a second go-round, and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has tried to no avail to land Dragic via trade this season. USA Today Sports

Q: How do you think you have done playing the three-guarded system? Goran Dragic: “It was a big adjustment at the beginning of the season. With three guards, it’s pretty tough. All of my life I had played as the only point guard handling the ball. Now I’m playing as a two-guard without the ball. I was frustrated. I was in a position that was different for me. I had different touches and looks. At the beginning, I didn’t play so well. That kind of frustrated me. But then I’ve been more patient and now I feel more comfortable and know what to expect from the game and where I’m going to be. It was a big adjustment for me, but as three guards we have won a lot of games this season.” Los Angeles Daily News
