Returned to the Suns in 2012. On September 18, 2017, Dragic led the Slovenian national team to win the European Cup in 2017, and he also won the MVP of the European Cup.

Dragic is good at playing fast breaks and is very good at pick-and-rolls. As a white player, he has a tough style of play and is not afraid of confrontation, which allows him to have an excellent free throw rate. On the defensive end, he has height and wingspan, is quick to respond, and is good at stealing. He can defend the second position with his height, but his strength will suffer.
On August 6, 2021, the Raptors and the Heat completed a sign-and-trade deal, and the Raptors got Dragic and Achuva. The Heat get Lowry.
