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

Shortly before July 1, Dragic will opt out of his $7.5 million player option with the Suns to become an unrestricted free agent. Then, Dragic will learn how much his third-team All-NBA honor, 2014 Most Improved Player award and crafty playmaking will attract on the open market, something he said will force him to make “the toughest decision in my life.” “I’m really happy here in Phoenix and they have given me everything I have ever dreamed,” Dragic said in an interview with Los Angeles Newspaper Group. “I feel like I’m at home here. But I’ll explore my options.” Los Angeles Daily News

Would one of those options include the Lakers? “It’s not just L.A. I think it’s everybody,” Dragic said. “Back in Europe, there are bad teams financially and teams that aren’t organized. But every team in the NBA is a good organization.” Los Angeles Daily News

But not every team has Kobe Bryant, who currently plans to play the final year of his contract for the 2015-16 season. “Any player that is one of the best players in the league would be cool to play with. Kobe is a legend,” Dragic said “I know how awesome it is to be around those superstars. If you’re patient enough and you listen, you learn a lot.” Los Angeles Daily News

The Phoenix Suns are actively shopping big man Miles Plumlee in advance of the Feb. 19 trade deadline, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com ‎that the Suns are working in conjunction with Plumlee's agent, Mark Bartelstein, to try to find a new home for the third-year center, who has seen his playing time steadily dwindle as the season has progressed. ESPN.com

The Suns are believed to be seeking at least one future first-round pick for the 26-year-old, who was selected 26th overall by Indiana in ‎the 2012 draft, one year before brother Mason was selected No. 22 overall by Brooklyn in the 2013 draft. ESPN.com
