I think Dragic showed some signs of being a big star in the league but I have not seen that of him this year. Why? Was it because he really needed more playing time? I doubt it. Maybe...and if so he was not going to get that time while Nash is still amazing.
Truth is the second unit looked far better with Dragic injured. I think how the bench played while he was hurt was the true pre-cursor to this trade. All in all..I like the move because Brooks gives us a Barbosaness that can be very helpful when mixed with the defensive prowess of our second unit.
Some people just want to argue against whatever Phx FO does but one cannot argue that the last game. Dragic was pulled early in the fourth because our team was losing the lead. I think it was a great move to change floor generals. Nash deserves a dependable back up in order to extend his career.
