The Boston Celtics have emerged as a contender for Goran Dragic.

Danny Ainge and the Celtics have enough assets to make a trade offer for Dragic.

The Celtics, Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets are not reportedly on Dragic's list of preferred teams, but all three appear willing to gamble on being able to re-sign him.

Ryan McDonough worked in the Celtics' front office before joining the Suns as general manager.
