According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Phoenix Suns have agreed to a two-year, $3.5 million deal with guard Zoran Dragic, brother of current Suns guard Goran Dragic. Stein also reports that Zoran’s deal is fully guaranteed and contains no options. Rafael Molina Guerra of La Opinion de Malaga reports that Dragic will be bought out for $1 million.

After an impressive showing in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Dragic had been courted by the Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings, but Phoenix was always presumed to be the frontrunner in landing the Slovenian guard. Dragic may find difficulties cracking Phoenix’s rotation, but he will provide the Suns with some nice depth and creative scoring ability. 

Phoenix has spent the off-season stockpiling guards, as they selected Syracuse guard Tyler Ennis with the 18th pick in the NBA Draft, signed free agent Isaiah Thomas, and agreed to an extension with restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe. The Suns also still have second year guard Archie Goodwin on their roster as well. 

Zoran Dragic, 25, spent the 2013-14 season in Spain, averaging 10.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. During the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Dragic averaged 12.9 points per game on 50% shooting from the field and 43% from three.
