Report: Zoran Dragic says he's signing two-year deal with Suns

Thursday September 25th, 2014

Slovenian guard Zoran Dragic's agency has informed his Spanish club team that he is leaving to sign a two-year, $3.5 million deal with the Phoenix Suns, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.

Dragic, the younger brother of Suns guard Goran Dragic, has a $1 million buyout in his contract with Unicaja Malaga, but Phoenix will reportedly pay it in order to bring him on. Any signing had to have occurred before the Spanish season begins in October.

It was reported last month that several NBA teams were interested in signing the younger Dragic, and the Suns' interest in him emerged earlier this month.

Dragic, 25, averaged 10.9 points in 22.9 minutes for Malaga last season. The guard/forward recently played for Slovenia in the FIBA World Cup, averaging 12.9 points in seven games.

The Suns open training camp Sept. 30. The team agreed with point guard Eric Bledsoe on a five-year, $70 million contract extension late Wednesday.
