The NBA trade deadline is right around the corner with NBA teams having until 12:00 PM PST on Feb. 19 to make deals.

One notable player that might get dealt before the trade deadline next week is Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic. Phoenix currently has a crowded backcourt and with Dragic likely to become a free agent this summer, a trade is highly likely to send him elsewhere before he leaves for nothing in return.

According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times, the Suns appear to be gauging trade interest in Dragic and letting teams know what they want in return:

Dragic has a player option for next season with Suns at $7.5 million. It’s doubtful Dragic stays in Phoenix with the team committed to Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe contractually over the next three to four years.

Along with battling for playing time and playing out of position at times in Phoenix, Dragic will likely secure a long-term deal in free agency this summer making his chances of staying in Phoenix remote.

Rumors have been floating around about the Los Angeles Lakers having interest in Dragic. The team is looking for an upgrade at the point guard position and Dragic would fit the bill, but it would be a risky move to give up a first-round draft pick for a player that could leave in free agency come July.
