Goran Dragic has remarkably built a 15-season career in the NBA despite entering the league at 22 years old. The Slovenian guard is now 37 years old and currently unsigned, but he played 58 games last season and shot a decent enough 35.9 percent from deep.
Dragic has always been more of a combo guard than a true point guard, a scorer and shooter who has solid playmaking skills when pressed into service at point guard. His best season came back in 2013-14, when he made Third Team All-NBA, but his most important stretch came in leading the Miami Heat to the NBA Finals in the Bubble in 2020.
He would be a steady hand and still has some verve left to push the ball and move quickly through actions. He shouldn’t be the Cavs’ first call, but he’s worth having on the call sheet.
George Hill built a 15-year career of his own by figuring out how to thrive alongside on-ball stars. Whether that was in San Antonio alongside Mani Ginobili, in Indiana with Paul George, Milwaukee with Giannis Antetokounmpo or even Cleveland with LeBron James for one brief stint, Hill is the perfect guard to defend opposing 1s while spotting up off-ball on offense.
Would that make him a good fit to join the Cavaliers and play alongside Donovan Mitchell? Hill is still a solid defender and has always been a high-level shooter. If the Cavs want a proven guard to eat some minutes without compromising their spacing, Hill makes sense; if they want more of a playmaker who can set up teammates with precise passes, Hill probably isn’t the best option out there.
