The Suns were in a bad spot: Steve Nash was leaving them to go search for a championship, leaving a huge void at point guard in the process.
Phoenix went out searching for guards to replace him, and luckily, his former backup was available. Dragic played his first two years in Phoenix before being traded in the middle of the 2010-2011 campaign.
He was now more polished and seemingly ready to lead a team, and the Suns signed him to a three-year contract, paying him $7.5 million a year.
So far Dragic's numbers are a solid 15 PPG and six APG. Considering that this is his first year starting, those stats are pretty good, and I couldn't have expected too much more.
This was a pretty good signing considering the need, but I do have one major problem with this signing. Just a few weeks before the deal, the Suns drafted Kendall Marshall with the 13th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Since that is the very next slide, I won't go too far into details. Without giving too much away, they both take away from each other's grades.
