RealGM: Zoran Dragic in advanced discussions to leave BC Unicaja for NBA

RealGM: Zoran Dragic in advanced discussions to leave BC Unicaja for NBA

Slovenian basketball player Zoran Dragic, a 25 year old 6'5" shooting guard, has said several times that he wants to go to the NBA if a team can make a solid offer and get him out of his current contract with BC Unicaja, Malaga. When Marc Stein first reported the Phoenix Suns heavy interest in Zoran, the brother of the Suns best player and third-team All-NBA Goran Dragic, the younger Dragic was just a gleam in the Suns' eye. Then, we right here at Bright Side with our international correspondents reported that Dragic and the Suns were very close to agreeing to a deal. All along, the big...

Goran Dragic prepared to quell doubts about regression after breakout season

Goran Dragic prepared to quell doubts about regression after breakout season

Goran Dragic is looking to build on an amazing 2013-14 season, which culminated in an All-NBA third team selection, and solidify himself as one of the premiere players in the game. Despite being overwhelmingly underrated and undervalued history shows that he very well can. People continue to doubt Goran Dragic. As a reformed Dragic skeptic I can somewhat empathize, but last season was ample evidence to my inspire my apostasy from the belief that Dragic had "hit his ceiling". I can't say with certitude that Dragic will definitely elevate his game to the next level of superstardom, but no...

Goran Dragic to opt out and re-sign in 2015 - Goran Dragic (G) Phoenix Suns

Goran Dragic said that he plans on opting out of his current contract after the 2014-15 season in order to quickly re-sign with the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix Suns Goran Dragic says he plans to opt out, quickly re-sign next summer

In his first declaration on his impending free agency, Goran Dragic makes it sound simple to re-sign with the Suns. While this stalemate with Eric Bledsoe drags on, the Phoenix Suns other big star - and arguably the bigger star of the two - has no plans to drag out his own free agency decision next summer. Phoenix Suns All-NBA guard Goran Dragic spoke to a reporter in Spain recently, and in response to playing in next summer's Eurobasket 2015 he spoke of his contract situation and how that should not impact his playing status. "Got a very interesting position with the club. Guess I'll...

Dragic, Slovenia go up against Team USA

Suns guard Goran Dragic has turned himself into one of the NBA's best players.         

Goran pulls the Slovenian wagon to win over Korea, 89:72

Goran Dragic lifts Slovenia over Korea with 22 points, 4 assists and great hustle. Final score is 89:72. To start with, Goran is averaging 19 points, 5 assists and shooting 70% from the field in the tournament Disclaimer: I may have gotten a bit sarcastic in parts, but you'll guess it without the appropriate font anyway. First period And Korea is in the lead! Well, it's only 2:0, but hey, it's something. And our guys are doing the impersonation of a sleeping beauty, losing 7:2, until Goran makes a good drive to the rim. Wake up boys. Slovenia takes the lead at 11:10 after a great run by...

Goran Dragić has 21 points in Slovenia's first World Cup game; "still not completely satisfied" with his game

Slovenia takes the win in their first World Cup game behind the fire breathing Dragon. Final score 90:80. First game of the World Cup proved to be a real thrill for Slovenian fans. And for Goran Dragic fans especially. He came out strong and though limited to only 26 minutes (due to foul trouble) still managed to get team highs in most categories. His full stat line read 21 points on 8/12 shooting, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 4 fouls with 5 turnovers. That's very impressive considering defenses are preparing especially for him. Can't stop the Dragon. The full game stats can be...

Report: Indiana Pacers showing interest in Zoran Dragic

Sportando reports that the Pacers have interest in Zoran Dragic. Making this the second Dragic they have reportedly been connected to this summer. Reportedly unable to swing a deal for Phoenix Suns' guard Goran Dragic, it appears that the Pacers have now shifted their focus to his well-rounded brother, Zoran Dragic. On Friday, ESPN's Marc Stein reported that multiple NBA teams are monitoring the younger Dragic brother: Also pleased to hear, since writing about ZORAN Dragic yesterday, that a few NBA teams are indeed tracking him. Hope for a two-Dragic NBA! — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine)...

Goran Dragic leads Slovenia over Australia, final score is 90:80

Slovenia out-muscles Australia 90:80 in their first outing in the World cup, led by Goran Dragic (21 points) who set the tone early with a showcase of all the skills that make him the best PG on the Suns and an undisputed MVP for team Slovenia. This is it boys and girls, no more limited minutes for Goran Dragic, no more hiding of tactics, no more half-assed (hopefully) approach to the game, this is where we see if The Dragon can bring his A-game despite him being the focal point of every opposing defense. In the words of The Joker: And here.we.go... Disclaimer: I may get a bit emotional...

Dragic, Slovenia hounded by Team USA, had "no solutions"

You know that Slovenia lost to Team USA today in convincing fashion. No surprise there. A country with 400 million people to choose from can beat a country with 2 million people to choose from. Slovenia is a country full of heart, trust and effort but they are not blessed with the same level of athleticism as the very best the country of 'Murca can offer. That's just the way it is. I loved that Marc Stein got some time with Goran Dragic after the game: "Their energy is unbelievable," Dragic told ESPN.com just outside Slovenia's locker room, having managed a mere six points in 21 minutes...

Phoenix Suns' Dragic and Thomas both want Eric Bledsoe back to wreak havoc on league

It's a league of competition. But Isaiah Thomas still wants Eric Bledsoe back, even though Bledsoe will take his starting job. And Goran Dragic wants Bledsoe back, even though Bledsoe could be making twice what Dragic makes. In any professional sport, your teammates are your competition as much as any opponent. You have to be competitive to win a starting position or even big minutes. On the Phoenix Suns, who project to have three staring-caliber point guards on the roster next season, competition will be at hand all season long. Competition over camaraderie I recently became more aware of...

Goran Dragić has 18 points, 7 assists and a block in a home loss to Brazil

The Dragon plays on Slovenian soil again, breathing some defensive fire and making longer 3s. After almost 11 months Suns Goran Dragic played in front of Slovenian fans again. It was nice to finally see him lead Slovenia team on court as its rightful captain. His first home game, though statistically not as efficient as usual, was still good: 18points on 7/17 shooting, 7 assists and a chase down block you could see coming immediately after the ball changed possession. When the Dragon doesn't produce well on offence, he goes into defense (make-up) mode, which I really have to commend here....

Dragic, Slovenia lose to Brazil in overtime, 84:88

Dragic and the sharp-shooting Prepelic were not enough to beat the hard-hitting center line-up of Nene, Splitter and Varejao. Recap Slovenia looked great early on, shitting down on D and using good ball movement to find the open man for a quick lead 10:5. After a time-out, the ball just seemed to stop finding the hole, but luckily the defense was still doing it's job so the score was 15:15 going into the second period. Goran Dragic had a really average (being nice) first period, struggling to run the team and missing a few open shots. The second period was basically a butt-whopping for...
