Report: Multiple teams inquiring about Suns guard Goran Dragic
Dragic, 28, is averaging 16.2 points, 4.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 25 games this season. He has a player option after this season and is widely expected to opt out of his $7.5 million contract with the Suns in order to become a free agent.
The NBA's salary cap is expected to rise after its $24 billion TV deal, which Berger reports has "bolstered" the Suns' hopes of re-signing Dragic. But with teams interested in the seventh-year veteran, the Suns are positioned to determine his market value.
Phoenix moved into ninth in the Western Conference following two straight wins. After missing two games with a back injury, Dragic has scored 30 points (20 and 10) during the Suns' two wins.
