Goran Dragic is reportedly ready to move on.

Dragic’s agent, Bill Duffy, informed the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday that the guard does not intend to re-sign with the team at the end of the season, according to reports from USA TODAY’s Sam Amick and ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Yahoo.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski said Duffy provided the team with a list of teams Dragic would like to play for.

The Lakers and Houston Rockets are among the teams that have reportedly shown interest in acquiring Dragic should the Suns seek to trade him by Thursday’s deadline. But Stein said the Rockets are probably not in the mix.

Wojnarowski said the Suns may not elect to trade Dragic by Thursday’s deadline, as they might be in a position to offer him more money than any other team during the offseason.

If a trade does not occur, Dragic will have the opportunity to opt out of the final year of his four-year, $30 million contract with the Suns at the end of the 2014-15 season.
