Stein had previously reported that the younger Dragic was drawing interest from NBA teams, but now adds that the Suns are "among the three NBA teams expressing the most serious interest" in the 6-foot-5 swingman.
Zoran, 25, currently plays for Unicaja Malaga in Spain, but Stein reports it would be possible for him to get out of his contract under certain circumstances. Dragic would have to sign with an NBA team prior to the start of the Spanish league season, which begins in early October. He also would have to pay "a higher-buyout fee than specified later in the contract," Stein says.
The Dragic brothers are competing for Slovenia in the FIBA World Cup. Zoran led the team in scoring with 18 points in a Round of 16 win over the Dominican Republic. Slovenia plays the United States Tuesday in the quarterfinals.
