If you’ve been reading ClutchFans or the forums at all for the last seven months, you know there has been one overriding focus and trade target that has consumed the fans — how do the Rockets get Goran Dragic back in Houston?
Looks like Bill Worrell is doing a little Goran Dragic recruiting. pic.twitter.com/7le4tKuLKv

There’s just been one problem — that has looked pretty much impossible.
That may be changing. The Suns lost five of their last six games going into the break and are now barely holding on to the 8th spot in the Western Conference, just a half-game ahead of the now-healthy Oklahoma City Thunder. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough recently confessed that the team’s “roster balance is a little off” and that they are “a little too backcourt heavy” and President of basketball operations Lon Babby added that the the Suns plans to be active at the trade deadline. Surprising no one, ESPN reported that the Rockets are “plotting a renewed attempt to try to convince the Suns to part with Dragic”.
David Weiner joins me on the podcast to discuss the Dragic possibility and others as we approach the NBA Trade Deadline this Thursday. We discuss why Dragic is the best (and perhaps only) fit on the market, weigh the Donatas Motiejunas question and touch on the Charles Barkley-Daryl Morey feud.
