    Dragic has everything it takes to be a starting PG. I have no clue where you're coming from.
    Nobody is questioning his talent, only the amount he's apparently getting paid. He could go on to become a top-tier starting PG, or he could plateau (or even worse regress), proving to be one of a long line of players who put up big numbers in a contract year and then never fulfilled the expectations that came with the big contract they signed. I'd give that kind of money to a proven commodity, but not to a guy who only started for half a season leading up to a new contract.

    For me personally, he's not the type of PG that I'm hoping for, to become the Raptors' PG-of-the-future. I much prefer traditional pass-first floor general PG (like Nash and Calderon), who make their teammates better and look for their own shot after looking to get their teammates going. Dragic is more of a 'me first' PG, IMO (not horribly, but still more than ideal).

    Agreed. My biggest fear now is BC reacting badly to Nash turning us down and forgetting about the methodical, organic rebuild/building and pulling off a desperation trade and/or signing that veers the franchise off course.
    Agreed . Part of the plan however was to add veterans. I still think they will try to add some age.

    His track record as a starter is a couple dozen games in a 66 game season. You have no reluctance about giving $34 million to a guy who never really did much of anything in his 6 seasons except for a stretch of 25 games at the end of his contract year? Dragic might turn out to be a terrific starter or he might regress to the same player he was for 5 1/2 seasons. For me, it's not a gamble worht taking especially for the Raps who don't really need a PG.
