Dragic Hopes For Return To Rockets, Wants To Be Starter
Goran Dragic, set to enter unrestricted free agency, would prefer to return to Houston.
“That is what I would want to have,” Dragic said. “I really like the Rockets, it is a great organization. I really liked playing for Kevin McHale. He’s a great coach, great guy. He was a player so he has had a lot of experience. He helped a lot with me this season, taught me how to run a team. I hope that in the future, I am still going to be with him.”
Dragic wants to be the Rockets’ starting point guard, a role he filled ably when Kyle Lowry was hospitalized with a stomach virus.
“Definitely, I want to be a starter in the NBA,” Dragic said. “I think I showed I can do it. I am really happy I got the opportunity to show what I can do and that I belong here. Still, you know, hopefully next year I am going to run the team. I know I can be a first point guard – it is something I can do.”
