Goran Dragic: NBA Draft Profile
Team: Union Olimpija
Birth Year: 1986
Accolades: Adriatic League All-Star (08), Slovenian National Team (06-08), Slovenian League All-Star (06), Slovenia U-20 National Team (04, 05), Slovenian U-18 National Team (04-05).
Scouting Report: A big, quick Slovenian point guard often compared to Tony Parker.
Strengths: Good size for a point guard. Amazingly accurate shooter – over 60% from the field. Great penetrator and finisher. Athletic – hits acrobatic shots. Good at pushing the ball. Quick player. Played in the best league outside of the NBA this year, the Euroleague. Solid defender. Left handed.
Weaknesses: Needs to improve his playmaking – almost racks up as many turnovers as assists. Has to add muscle to his frame and get stronger. Has to become a more consistent outside shooting threat. Decision making isn’t what it should be for a point guard. Is already 22-years-old.
Projected 2008 Draft Range: Mid to late second round pick.
Consensus: Dragic could be a good second round pick for a team willing to keep him in Europe for another year to get stronger and work on his point guard skills.
