"Unrestricted free agent point guard Goran Dragic is now hoping for a nice payday from Dallas after the Mavs whiffed on Williams. Source says Dragic was given a five-year, $40 million offer from Houston but told the Rockets he wanted to continue testing the market (i.e. to get even more). Where Deron Williams went was a major factor, so they were waiting for that domino to fall. It's unclear how hard Dallas may go after Steve Nash now as well if he doesn't take Toronto's deal or New York doesn't miraculously land him, though I have a hard time seeing Mavs owner Mark Cuban eat into his cap space too much for Nash. He's been in big picture mode for a minute here, it would seem. "
