Goran Dragic has agreed to sign to return to Phoenix, which must be why they agreed to the sign and trade for Nash.


Dragic is fourteen years younger than Nash, and is just emerging as a star, possibly a super-star, in a bit of the Nash playing style. After all, he learned from Nash while playing behind him.

He settled for less than the ten million per year that he was reportedly seeking. I think that we could have had him if he had been on our radar. I never thought we had much chance at Nash, nor, because of his age, did I think that was a good idea, but I think that Dragic would have made us significantly better for a long time.

So I join those mourning Nash's signing in order to mourn his replacement's signing.
