Goran Dragic Shares Major Family Struggles Due to Coronavirus
- Updated: April 7, 2020
In an interview with Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald, Dragic opened up about one of the struggles plaguing his family due to the worldwide virus.
“I have so many different problems,” Dragic said. “My uncle is stuck here in the U.S. I’m trying to get him back to his home country, so I’m on the phone 24/7 basically with the government. It’s just a crazy situation for me and my family. I just want to be done with that, and hopefully when this virus is done then I can think about my future and free agency and everything.”
Dragic, 33, is experiencing the severe inconveniences that the coronavirus has imposed on travel.
The guard’s home country of Slovenia has asked most citizens to return to the nation.
While his parents were able to go back to Slovenia, his uncle is still stuck in South Florida. Dragic’s uncle is from Serbia, which has closed its borders.
Before the virus afflicted the NBA, Dragic was having an amazing campaign with the Heat. This season, the 6-foot-3 guard is averaging 16.1 points, 5.1 assists and 3.1 boards per game.
The veteran will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Dragic is in the final year of the $85 million contract he signed with the Heat in the summer of 2015.
The journeyman has career averages of 13.9 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.
