NBA Free Agency 2012: Goran Dragic To Meet With Houston Rockets, According To Report

The Houston Rockets have many balls in the air right now, but one of their major priorities in free agency is deciding what to do with free-agent starting point guard Goran Dragic. The Rockets would like to re-sign keep Dragic after he emerged in the second half of the season. That process will begin Monday, as general manager Daryl Morey is meeting with Dragic, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

The Rockets have already signed restricted free-agent center Omer Asik to an offer sheet, and they also met with New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon on Sunday. Dragic, however, remains a priority, even with all the other players the Rockets are considering.

Dragic averaged 11.7 points and 5.3 assists per game overall last season, but flourished as a starter, averaging 18 points and 8.4 assists while shooting 49 percent from the field. The Rockets still have Lowry, their starting point guard until a late-season illness gave Dragic his opportunity, under contract, but have been trying to trade him since he said he couldn't coexist with coach Kevin McHale.
