Suns guard Goran Dragic might leave the NBA after the completion of his current contract.
Goran is under contract with Phoenix next season for $1.97 million and there is a team option for $2.1 million in 2011-12.
Tassos Melas of The Score's Basketball Jones translated Dragic's comments to the European media.
"I am completely satisfied with my presence in the NBA. These two years helped me evolve as a player. I improved in all areas. I have a contract for this year, and then for the following year, it's my choice whether or not to continue (in Phoenix). Maybe I return to Europe," Dragic said.
"Eventually this will happen for sure. I do not know if it will the season after next. But the prospect of a big European team, perhaps even Greek, would interest me very much. Winning titles is always something which is very important."
Thoughts on this?
My first question is why's he saying it's his choice whether or not to continue in Phoenix when we have a TEAM option, not a player option.
