Zoran Dragic On Verge Of Leaving Europe For NBA

Slovenia star Zoran Dragic is in advanced discussions to leave his European club, BC Unicaja, to sign with an NBA team, league sources told RealGM.

After the Slovenian national team’s elimination in the FIBA World Cup to Team USA last Tuesday, Dragic focused on reaching terms on a deal in the NBA and has made significant progress this week. As a skilled, polished player, Dragic has shown glimpses of NBA upside.

Dragic, 25, had 11 points and five rebounds in 28 minutes of action against the United States in the World Cup.

RealGM reported on Sept. 9 that Dragic was in talks on a possible deal with the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks and Orlando Magic. The Phoenix Suns have long maintained dialogue with Dragic, and they’ve been an obvious suitor due the relationship with the 6-foot-5 guard’s older brother, Goran Dragic.

Dragic holds a buyout for the NBA until Oct. 5 with Unicaja Malaga, but he’s set to make a decision much before the date.

In seven games in this year’s world championships, Dragic averaged 12.9 points, four rebounds and 1.3 assists. He scored nearly 11 points per game for Unicaja a season ago.
