Rockets News: Houston "Tempted" To Reunite With Goran Dragic Via Trade?

The NBA trade deadline is just a week away, and the Houston Rockets are looking for guard depth. They could find the ultimate addition in former Rocket and current Phoenix Suns star Goran Dragic, but it wouldn't come without a hefty price.

Here's Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times with the report:

Dragic, 28, has played in two separate stints with the Suns, sandwiching 88-game cup of coffee with the Houston Rockets. He put together career bests in points per game (20.3) and field goal percentage (50.5) last season, and is currently averaging 16.2 points, 4.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds through his first 52 games with the Suns in 2014-15.

Along with the Rockets, there are several other teams (contending and not) who are looking for a major backcourt upgrade heading into the deadline. However, teams like Houston will have to be very wary of the cost associated with Dragic, especially seeing that he's likely to bypass his player option for 2015-16 and test free agency.
