Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic's brother, Zoran, is drawing interest from NBA teams, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

Zoran Dragic, 24, led the Slovenian team in scoring with 16 points during its exhibition against Team USA this week. The younger Dragic plays shooting guard for Unicaja Malaga in Spain and signed a new contract with the team this summer.

Goran praised his brother's performance.

"He was awesome," Dragic continued. "He was our best player on the court. It means a lot to play with him. We don't see each other so often. OK, on Skype, but it's not the same. Now it's a perfect situation for us to play together with the national team.
"We can share the court and maybe do some damage [in Group D]. And hopefully someday we can play each other in the NBA."

Stein reports a few NBA teams are keeping an eye on Zoran's development in Spain.

Slovenia opens play in the FIBA Basketball World Cup on Saturday against Australia.
