The Phoenix Suns signed Slovenian guard Zoran Dragic to a multi-year contract Monday.
Dragic, 25, spent the last ten seasons playing professionally in Spain and Slovenia. He was part of the Slovenian National Team that took part in the FIBA World Cup in Spain earlier this month. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound guard averaged 12.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over seven contests in the tournament.
Of course, he is the younger brother of Suns guard Goran Dragic.
“Zoran’s will to win and intensity stand out every time he steps on to the court,” Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said in a statement. “He has been a very productive player in Euroleague, ACB and FIBA competitions. He excels defensively and in transition and I think our fans will quickly recognize his passion for the game.”
