Suns Owner "Digging In", Wants To Keep Dragic, Trade Thomas

New, comments

Multiple ESPN reporters have some potentially upsetting news for Heat fans.

ESPN reporters Chris Broussard and Ramona Shelburne are now independently reporting that Suns owner Robert Sarver has "dug in" and doesn't want to trade Goran Dragic.

A lot can (and probably will) change between now and the 3PM deadline but it's definitely worth noting that, as of now, Sarver wants the Suns to keep the disgruntled point guard in Phoenix.  This could simply be posturing from Phoenix's side of things to try and get more out of Miami or whoever else they're talking to, or it could be real.  Nobody ever really knows with Mr. Sarver.

Sean Deveney of Sporting News is reporting that Sarver's preference is to keep Dragic and trade Isaiah Thomas instead.  The Heat would certainly be interested in Thomas if that were the case and it may even be at a discounted price.
