Just this past week, I wrote a lengthy piece discussing the status of star Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic as the NBA trade deadline loomed.
Essentially, the point being made was Phoenix needed to trade him, thanks both to their stacked back court and the looming likelihood of Dragic opting out of his contract this offseason. Sure, the possibility of retaining him was there. It was quite faint, but there nonetheless. If the Suns decided not to deal Dragic, attempting to woo him with a possible playoff berth, it was a valiant, but incredibly risky strategy.
Oh what a difference a few days can make.
