The Rockets have exercised their team option on 25-year old point guard Goran Dragic’s contract, so he will return to them in 2011-12. Dragic played in 22 games (3 starts) last year for the Rockets after coming over from the Suns in the Aaron Brooks deal and he averaged 17.2 minutes, 7.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Dragic played in 70 games (5 starts) overall last year and he averaged 17.6 minutes, 7.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. Dragic has now played in 205 games (8 starts) in his first three years in the NBA and he is averaging 16.6 minutes, 6.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. It was a smart move for the Rockets to bring Dragic back for the 2011-12 season.
