Dragic Looking Forward to Playing With Bledsoe
(Goran) Dragic is also looking forward to another transition of running mates. After temporarily switching out Phoenix teammates for his Slovenian countrymen, Dragic will return next month to get acquainted with his new partner in the Suns’ backcourt, Eric Bledsoe. Both McDonough and Hornacek have expressed optimism over the plan to start the two of them together as interchangeable playmakers and scorers at both guard positions.
The duo boasts a combined NBA experience of just eight years, leaving plenty of room for the potential that has Dragic excited to see how they mesh together on the court.
“He’s a mini-Lebron James,” Dragic said of Bledsoe. “He’s got that big strength so when he’s in the open court, he’s unstoppable. Like a lot of fans know, I like to play fast basketball. When I get the ball to the other guy, he’s going to run. We’re going to score a lot of points.”
