Zoran Dragic took a step closer to joining his older brother Goran Dragic in the NBA this summer when he appeared for the Houston Rockets at the Las Vegas Summer League.

But with teams overseas securing final spots on their respective rosters, one Dragic is staying in the NBA while the other will once again keep tabs from afar and go about another season playing in Europe.

Zoran Dragic is in the process of signing a two-year contract with Unicaja Malaga according to a number of reports out of Spain on Thursday. The deal should be finalized in the next couple of days.

During summer league, the 6'5 shooting guard averaged 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 4 games played.

Zoran has always said getting the chance to play in the NBA with Goran -- now of the Phoenix Suns -- would be a "dream come true", but the reality right now is his game may be more well suited for Europe. Competing in Spain's ACB League will only lend to Dragic's already sound overseas resume.

At 23-years old, maybe another go at the NBA is in the plans down the right.

But right now, Dragic is preparing to make Malaga home for the next two seasons.
