“If things aren’t addressed coaching-wise, I guess I have to be moved.”"

I'm not sure if this is true or not, but I believe I read somewhere that we sent Goran to Phoenix as a slight favor to him. We blew up the roster; we'd be wasting his best years. Likewise with Lowry.

But regarding Dragic's player option - Morey said that with a player option, the chances of ending up with essentially a free agent (not desirable to other teams) or a player that few teams want is much higher. I know it's coming from the man himself, but still.

Tbh, I'm just glad we're not stuck in mediocre-land with players that have already plateaued or were on the decline.

Yeah, but Lowry's main issue was that he couldn't co-exist with Dragic. I do recall him being pissed the season prior as well and wrote stuff on Twitter like, "I don't want to be somewhere where I'm wanted". He got the green light after that as the starting PG..

If the Rockets would have given him the green light I really do believe that he'd still be the startin PG for the Rockets.
