Miami Heat Rumors
Tim Reynolds: Pat Riley and Goran Dragic have collectively decided that he won’t be playing for Slovenia this summer. No surprise, but still newsworthy.
Which players did you focus on? Phil Jackson: “Goran Dragic, for one. I heard through the grapevine that he was open to coming here. We worked hard on that possibility, but the asking price was too dear. Maybe we worked on that possibility so much so that it distracted us. I mean, Dragic is every team’s current choice for a nuclear option — a guard who can penetrate and either score or kick. Guys like Chris Paul and James Harden. But, anyway, that’s not really the way I want us to play.”
