Wright talked with coach Brad Stevens extensively over the last few days and knew at Friday morning’s shootaround he could be gone. “I really appreciated him in the time I’ve been here, he’s a great guy,” Wright said. “A heck of a coach. He’s got this thing going in the right direction. He treated me with class the entire time I was here. I enjoyed the short stint working here with him.” Said Stevens of Wright: “He’s a great kid. I said that many times. I really like the way he plays. With the guys that they have in that [Phoenix] system, he’ll really do well. It’s another jolt to your system.” Boston Globe

This is still a good team — a speed demon that feasts on corner 3s and plays close to league-average defense despite fouling a ton. They just don’t look to be good enough, and that’s fine, considering how young they really are. The Suns will be on the hunt for some help, but they should prioritize next season and beyond in talking deadline deals. Teams will call about all of their point guards, but the feeling around the league is that Phoenix would be most open to moving Thomas. Grantland

Suns guard Goran Dragic left open the possibility of going to any team in free agency when talking before Saturday's game and stuck to the idea after the game when asked again about being an unrestricted free agent in July. "It's still early to talk about that," Dragic said. "Right now, I want to be 100 percent focused on the team and try to help the team and players. In the offseason, I'm going to probably sit down with my family first and with my agent and try to explore all the options. From there, I'll try to choose the one best for me." Arizona Republic

"As an athlete, you need to be focused every game," Dragic said. "That's why, even if there's some trade rumors, I never read those and I never pay attention because that's a really bad thing. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen. The only thing I can do is be a good professional and be ready every game and help my teammates." Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Suns, who visited the lowly Knicks on Saturday, are in a bit of a quagmire with free agent-to-be Goran Dragic, rival executives say. Multiple teams already are inquiring as to what it would take to break up the Suns' three-headed guard rotation of Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Isaiah Thomas -- with Dragic, a prospective free agent, garnering the most attention. Coincidentally, executives have gotten the impression that Dragic is the one Phoenix would most like to keep if they do, indeed, decide to make a move. CBSSports.com
