The Bobcats have been in touch with Dragic's agent and will be making an offer, league source says.— Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) July 5, 2012
It seems the Bobcats are looking to shore up their backcourt by aiming for former Rockets and Suns point guard Goran Dragic, reportedly preparing to make an offer per Ken Berger of CBS Sports. Dragic is looking to sign somewhere where he can be the clear-cut starting point guard and also making a cool $10 million per year, says Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski and Berger.
It would appear the Bobcats are looking beyond re-signing D.J. Augustin, despite extending him a qualified offer last week. Dragic would be a solid improvement over Augustin as a shooter and scorer, sporting similar percentages from three, but much better size and finishing ability than Augustin.
At any rate, this is an interesting development as it also shows the Bobcats are probably looking to find a point guard to start over Kemba Walker, who showed flashes in his rookie season but also showed room for improvement moving forward. The move could also add size to the backcourt, which is a little undersized with Walker, Gordon and Henderson.
