Goran Dragic
Can Aaron Brooks Give The Suns What Goran Dragic Didn't?

The Phoenix Suns second unit has been a sore spot this season after being one of the points of pride through the team's Western Conference Playoff run. A ton of different guys have rotated in and out of the line up and played a variety of roles but the one constant was backup point guard Goran Dragic.

Dragic is -- was -- the visible face of the bench unit. He was the guy who signified the time when team went from the MVP-hands of Steve Nash to someone else.

With Dragic at the wheel, the Suns were a horrible -16.6 in plus/minus. Of course, the Suns were also a +11 when Dragic was on the court with Vince Carter, Channing Frye, Marcin Gortat and Jared Dudley. And the team was -19 when he was on the court with a slightly different group of players that included Hakim Warrick and Josh Childress. ( Read Goran Dragic more... )

Suns Trade Goran Dragic For Aaron Brooks...Wow

Didn't see this coming and honestly not sure how I feel about it. Goran Dragic has not had a good season for sure but I still believe in his upside and while Aaron Brooks can score the ball, he's a horrible defender. Brooks is also a restricted free agent so he will need to be paid next year while Dragic had a team option on his contract for 2011-12.

Dragic is certainly a favorite of mine. I like his game and his make up but there's no doubt he took a big step back this season. The front office people that believed in him and brought him to the Suns are gone and over the past few weeks there were signs that the coaching staff was losing some faith in him. I still think he'll turn out fine and am not sure the Suns won't end up regretting this. ( Read Goran Dragic more... )
