After two solid showings in the last two televised international competitions (2012 Olympics, 2014 FIBA World Cup), teams have increased their interest in Dragic.

In the most recent competition, the 2014 FIBA World Cup which recently ended with Team USA capturing the gold, Dragic, appearing in seven games for Slovenia, averaged 12.9 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and 43.3 percent from behind the arch.

At 6’5, Dragic, like his brother, presents the opportunity to play him at both guard positions. If he’s 75 percent of what his brother is, Zoran will find a nice home in the NBA, especially if his three-point percentage numbers carry over into the NBA.

According to past reports, Dragic has drawn interest from the Phoenix Suns, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, and others.

Most recently, it was reported, Zoran Dragic was in talks to sign a deal with the Suns.
