Goran Dragic Rumors: Bobcats Make Offer, Suns In Pursuit

The Charlotte Bobcats have prepared an offer for unrestricted free agent point guard Goran Dragic, according to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but with Wednesday's trade that sent Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Phoenix Suns may be in hot pursuit of the 26-year-old Slovenian point man, who played for the Houston Rockets last season:

As you may remember, Dragic spent the first two-plus seasons of his NBA career with with Suns before being traded (along with a first-round draft pick) to the Rockets for Aaron Brooks in February 2011. Dragic appeared in all 66 games of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season for Houston, making 28 starts and averaging a career-best 11.7 points and 5.3 assists per game.

Clearly, the Nash trade has created a domino effect. The Suns are now in need of a young, solid point guard, meaning Dragic's value on the free agent market has increased. But will the Bobcats' offer win out?
