Dragic not going back to Houston?
Source - @jonathan_feigen:
Sides so far apart on contract, meeting yesterday ended w/ thanks and good luck kind of exchange. Still, Dragic hasn't gotten that deal yet.
Houston is screwed if they lose Dragic especially since Lowry is pissed off at them. If Dragic and Lowry are gone - I think its the perfect team for a Calderon trade.
As @ESPNSteinLine mentioned last night, little chance of Dragic return to Rockets. Source: "Goranís not coming back. Just not happening."
Pass on Nash, sign Dragic!

Houstonís meeting with point guard Goran Dragic didnít go so well, with the Rockets essentially telling his camp, ďGood luck with that,Ē regarding their number. Sources close to the situation tell HOOPSWORLD Dragicís camp was asking for $10 million in the first year of a multi-year contract, and thatís not a number Houston is willing to match. Itís not out of the question that Dragic and the Rockets could revisit the situation, but only if Dragic finds that teams like Dallas, Toronto, Portland and others who have shown interest arenít willing to pony up the dough.
Younger, cheaper and, although the sample size is small with only a limited peek at him as a starter, looks to be pretty damn good.
I'm a Steve Nash fan but I can't come to terms with committing 3 years and $36M to the end of his career rather than to a SF upgrade. Even if I combine his possible contribution as a mentor for Bayless and Uzoh I can't see how this move fits the rebuild model of the Raptors, which is going well in my opinion.
