Zoran Dragic has played well for Slovenia in the FIBA World Cup, so much so that he’s drawn serious interest from multiple NBA teams.

As many as seven clubs might be interested, but three of them are considered to be the ones most likely to extend an NBA offer to him for next season.

From Marc Stein of ESPN.com:

ESPN sources say Phoenix, Indiana and Sacramento are the teams in most serious pursuit of Slovenian guard Zoran Dragic, brother of Goran

Talks expected to pick up now that Slovenia has been eliminated from FIBA World Cup. Chance remains new teams could come into fray, but …

But Suns, Pacers and Kings are the teams, sources say, that have expressed most steady interest in recent weeks in Goran’s brother Zoran

As ESPN reported this week, Zoran Dragic DOES still have ability to jump to NBA this season as long move is made before start of Spanish ACB

Shams Charania of Real GM reports that the Heat, Spurs, Mavericks and Magic have also expressed varying levels of interest.

Dragic averaged 9.4 points and 4.8 rebounds for Slovenia in World Cup play, which ended for him Tuesday at the hands of Team USA. His brother Goran is coming off of a fantastic season for the Suns, one which resulted in him being named to the All-NBA third team.
