Known as ‘The Dragon’, Dragic was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs in the second round of the 2008 NBA Draft but sent him on to the Suns on the same night.

It came after he played for four seasons in his homeland and was named Rookie of the Year and an All-Star in Slovenia.

After that season he was traded to the Heat and spent seven seasons in Miami, playing a crucial role after LeBron James left.

He put up an average of 19.1 points and 4.4 assists per game during the Heat’s run to the Covid-affected NBA finals in 2020.
