Point guard Goran Dragic in some ways is emblematic of this summer’s free-agent class—a player who has shown flashes of excellence but is far from established. He is 26 and has four seasons under his belt, but the first three of those years were packed with a handful of highs and many more lows. He started just eight games in those three years, averaged a career high of only 7.9 points in his second season and was traded to the Houston Rockets last year. With the Rockets, he was in a firm backup role to starter Kyle Lowry—until March 8, that is, when Lowry was hospitalized with a stomach virus.
