The Phoenix Suns trade Goran Dragic to the Houston Rockets for Aaron Brooks and a first-round pick

Phoenix receives: Aaron Brooks and a first-round pick
Houston receives:
Goran Dragic

Analysis: The Rockets have been talking about moving Brooks for some time as he's kind of soured in Houston. They're fine with handing the team to Kyle Lowry and heck, maybe even Dragic now who is a pretty good point guard. They also get a nice first-round pick from Phoenix, which is always an added bonus.

The Suns get last season's Most Improved winner and a decent heir to Steve Nash's throne. Of course Brooks is a restricted free agent so something will have to be settled there, but Phoenix likely didn't make this deal just to let Brooks walk. At some point they will need a new point guard and Brooks looks to be their man.

In a two paragraph analysis, you'd think they could get the recipient of the 1st rounder correct.

So who got the first rounder????  At the top it says Phoenix and in the article it says Houston.  I am guessing it is Houston...

This trade is slightly better than the Thabeet one, if only because we got someone who can actually play in return for a guy who used to be one of the Rockets' best players.
