Phoenix Suns Officially Sign Goran Dragic

The Phoenix Suns officially introduced point guard Goran Dragic to the media on Thursday afternoon. Following the departure Steve Nash to the Lakers, the Suns were left scrambling to find a new man to run the show on offense. Along with first round pick Kendall Marshall, Dragic is expected to see most of the ball handling duties for the foreseeable future.

Dragic, a 6-3, 190-pound guard, returns to the team who drafted him after a season-plus with the Houston Rockets, where he developed into a legitimate starting point guard in the NBA. Dragic entered 2011-12 as a back-up, but started 28 of 66 games, including the season's final 26 contests after starter Kyle Lowry was sidelined by an illness. In nearly half a season as a starter, Dragic averaged 18.0 points, 8.4 assists and 1.82 steals.

The Suns are a team that will look drastically different from the one last season, but they'll be a fun one to say the least. As SB Nation Arizona's Cody Ulm wrote this week, this Phoenix team is going to be the most entertaining one to watch in years.
