The fourth best scorer of the tournament, and the younger brother of Phoenix Sun Goran, with whom he shares several characteristics. Like Goran, he’s left handed and shows good speed and quickness, being very intense on both ends of the court. Although he’s also a decent passer and an acceptable ball handler, he’s much more a slashing scoring guard than a point guard. Dragic is very aggressive going towards the basket, particularly going left. However he commits many errors when he needs to pass on his drives, averaging 3.2 turnovers in 27 minutes.
Although he can create his own shots off the dribble, his outside shooting is really quite bad, connecting on only 18% from downtown. He often tries to do a bit too much, forcing plays without involving his teammates, and looking much more comfortable in up tempo settings.
Defensively, he’s very active in man to man, putting good pressure and attacking the passing lanes quite well, resulting in 2.5 steals per game. This doesn’t mean he gambles all the time, as he’s actually quite solid on team defense too. Another plus is the fact that he helps out a lot in rebounding.
Dragic probably doesn’t share the NBA upside of his brother, but he should be able to at the very least make a nice living on Slovenia’s better teams.
