Phoenix Suns Agree to $34 Million Deal With Goran Dragic

Now that Steve Nash is no longer a Sun, Phoenix quickly moved to replace him, agreeing to a 4-year, $34 million contract with free agent point guard Goran Dragic. From the AZ Republic: “Dragic, an unrestricted free agent, was the Plan B for many teams pursuing Nash but became the Suns’ Plan A quickly with Wednesday’s development, including a Steve Nash sign-and-trade with the Los Angeles Lakers and agreeing to terms with small forward Michael Beasley. As a starter in Houston, Dragic averaged 18.0 points and 8.4 assists this season while shooting 49 percent from the field. Dragic, 26, can sign the contract July 11. It includes a fourth-year player option.”

    I still don’t see the Suns in the playoffs unless Gordon signs up and the Hornets do not match. What is the starting V for the Suns? Lopez-Gortat-Beasly-Gordon-Dragic? Does that get you into the playoffs in the West? I’m not sure.


    now i wanna see dragic vs nash, pupil vs mentor.

    WTF?! COT DAMMIT Houston, you couldn’t offer him a little less than $9 mil a year? How cheap can Dork Elvis get? He doesn’t want to re-sign the Rockets’ best player because he’s waiting on a superstar trade that may never materialize. Cot dammit… At least we know Lowry is staying now. Stupid stupid stupid.

    Dragic might be an All-Star next season, he’s that good. Best of luck to dude.

    ^ If that happens I’m gonna burn my Rockets Yao Ming jersey. Sorry Yao, but you’re the only Rockets joint I have.

    What makes you so sure though? imo Lowry was p!ssed because he came back and wasn’t starting. Unless the Rockets manage to steal Lin from New York (isn’t happening), I’m pretty sure they reconcile with Lowry.
