Report: Suns signing Zoran Dragic
Update: Sam Amick of USA Today:
Zoran Dragic's deal is worth $3.5 million over two years with the Suns, I'm told.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) September 25, 2014
Seems like a pretty fair price. Zoran Dragic is not an elite prospect, but the Suns had to lure him stateside.
Guards on guards on guards.
After re-signing Eric Bledsoe, the Suns have not stopped stockpiling guards to go with Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas, Tyler Ennis, Gerald Green and Archie Goodwin.

Zoran Dragic annunced to Unicaja having a Phoenix Suns offer to go to the NBA immediately. He must pay 1.000.000 dollars (770.000€).— Rafael Molina Guerra (@Falimguerra) September 25, 2014
The Suns can pay $600,000 of that buyout without it counting against the cap. They’ll probably do that, offsetting the salary they would have made him by that amount.
Zoran might have a tough time breaking into Phoenix’s rotation immediately, but he provides nice depth. As he showed competing for Slovenia during the World Cup, the younger Dragic is a crafty scorer and solid passer.
The Suns now have 15 players – including Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris, another set of brothers – so they might be done for the offseason.
Unless they sign Bledsoe’s brother or something.
