Suns Agree To Terms With Goran Dragic, According To Report

When the Suns traded Steve Nash to the Lakers on Wednesday, it left them with a gaping hole at point guard. It didn't take Phoenix long to start filling that hole, agreeing to a four-year, $34 million deal with Goran Dragic several hours.

The deal will bring Dragic back to Phoenix, where he played his first two and a half seasons. Originally a second- round pick of the Spurs in 2008 whose rights were later acquired by Phoenix, Dragic was traded by the Suns along with a first-round pick for Aaron Brooks during the 2010-11 season.

Dragic averaged a career-high 11.7 points and 5.3 assists per game last year while starting 28 games for the Rockets. He will join recent first-round pick Kendall Marshall in attempting to replace Nash in Phoenix.
