Suns Sign Dario Saric to Three-Year, $27 Million Contract
The Phoenix Suns are bringing back forward Dario Saric on a three-year, $27 million contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Saric landed with the Suns last summer via a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves that sent rookie Jarret Culver to Minnesota.
Saric, 26, averaged 10.7 points, , 6.2 rebounds, and 1.9 assists while shooting close to 48% from the field, during his first season in Phoenix.
Saric formed a fluid frontcourt with Suns big man Deandre Ayton, and played strong during the Suns 8-0 run in the bubble earlier this year.
With the additions of Chris Paul via trade, and Jae Crowder in free agency, the Suns are poised to be playoff contenders in the 2020-2021 season.
