I know I'll probably get some nasty comments for this.
I'd rather have Trey Burke, and here's why....
In three years, Goran Dragic will be 30. As we've seen many times, once a player reaches the age of 30 they could lose most of their value seemingly overnight.
To be honest with you all, I don't see Goran Dragic becoming a true star point guard in this league. With the kinds of point guards that are seemingly emerging every year, Goran doesn't seem to have a ceiling that will touch any of them. Also, I'm weary of the "potential" that he might have. He's 27 years old.....I don't see him getting much better.
I do indeed remember why I came to love Goran in the first place. His big, courageous, energetic bench play and deterrence of Sasha Vujacic during the 2010 Western Conference Finals was, in my opinion, worthy of a promotion. His 24th birthday had been a week and a half before that series. Although we lost, I could certainly see a future for Goran.
One trade, one stint in Houston and one Jeremy Lin later, Goran is now our 27 year old starting point guard. The way I see it, Trey wants to be great, Victor Oladipo isn't a sure thing, Ben McLemore has serious character issues and I'm not sold at all on any of the players that are projected to be drafted outside of the top 5. (The one exception to that opinion is Cody Zeller. I think he's very much underrated. That said, I think there's zero chance he ends up in Phoenix.)
Is Trey Burke a sure thing? About as sure as Otto Porter or anyone else in the draft. He's a sophomore true point guard who has a great basketball IQ, potent offensive weapons and a chip on his shoulder. If I'd take a chance on anyone, it would be him. Allen Iverson was "too small," too.
What to do with Goran? Ship him back to Houston. That would be a pretty ironic conclusion, but I think it would work out for the Rockets. He flourished in that system more than in ours.
Once upon a time there was a user on this site named "dragicismagic." I know that three years ago Goran was as much of a fan favorite in Phoenix as anyone on the roster not named Steve Nash. That said, I think we should trade up, if we can.
