Zora Dragic: It's a transition. When I came here, I said, "I'm going to get at least five or 10 minutes per game," but this has not happened. But I talk with Goran and he gives me big goals. I'm trying to grow in the same path like him, but I want to have my own success. Some guys were writing that I signed here because my brother is here, but that's not true. I had a couple other offers. When I finally play, I'm going to give everything I've got. I'm going to run, run, and I'm going to feel like I smoked cigarettes all my life, like, "I cannot breathe [laughs]!" Bleacher Report

He wanted to take me to dinner and asked if I could bring my brother, so I didn’t know anything. I thought he was being polite. When we went to the restaurant he started asking questions to Zoran and I was like, what is going on? Then I heard all the rumors coming out on the internet, and I started thinking maybe this could happen.” Basketball Insiders
