League executives have indicated that Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver is refusing to accommodate point guard Goran Dragic's trade request, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Broussard.

A USA Today report said that Dragic told the Suns he won't re-sign with the team. The point guard reportedly has requested that he be traded and recently said that he doesn't trust Phoenix's front office. 

Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Dragic's agent, Bill Duffy, delivered the Suns a list of preferred trade destinations that includes the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Miami Heat.

Wojnarowski later reported that Phoenix is more focused on discussing possible Dragic deals with the Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings, among other teams.

Dragic is in his third season with the Suns after leaving the Houston Rockets in free agency in 2012. He can become a free agent this offseason by declining a $7.5 million player option for 2015-16.

In 52 games this season, Dragic has averaged 16.2 points and 4.1 assists while shooting 50.1 percent from the field and 35.5 percent from three-point range. The 28-year-old is in his seventh NBA season.

This offseason the Suns signed guard Eric Bledsoe to a five-year deal and guard Isaiah Thomas to a four-year contract. Phoenix currently sits in eighth place in the Western Conference with a 29-25 record.

The league's trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. ET.
