Point guard Dragic expected to join Suns

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- There's word today that point guard Goran Dragic is heading to Phoenix with intentions of signing with the Phoenix Suns.

The 22-year-old Slovenian's reportedly reached a buyout agreement with his Spanish Club on Saturday and then took a flight yesterday to the United States.

The Suns are hoping Dragic can back up Steve Nash, and perhaps carry the Suns into the future. Dragic's contract reportedly will keep the 6 foot 4 inch left-hander in Phoenix for the next four seasons.

With the addition of Dragic to their roster, the Suns are now at 13 players, which is the minimum they're required to have.
