    Either reports that Morey was offering 8 million a year are wrong or Goran just wanted to go to the Suns.

    Dragic said all along that where ever he went he wanted to be garunteed the starters job. Daryl Morey has been reluctant to trade Kyle so I guess he just sees Kyle as a better point guard than Goran for 3 million less.

    He wants to start. Kyle Lowry is still on the team. That's probably another factor.

    Maybe he signed with the Suns after he got word that Lin had signed offer sheet with Rockets?

    It would make sense that the Rockets would do the due diligence and inform Dragic.

    Don't worry guys. Daryl "The Wizard" Morey is going to trade for Dwight Howard and pair him up with Deron Williams!

    Maybe the money was not the issue, maybe Daryl Morey would not garuntee him the starter spot over Kyle Lowry.

    I don't know about you guys but I am starting to root for the Rockets to FAIL. That's how much they are pissing me off right now.

    Psst! It's no big deal. Not like its the universe record or anything important. Seriously, If Lowry/Mchale make up It's safe to say that Lowry can D up Dragic but Dragic can never D up Kyle.
