Dario Saric will be returning to the Phoenix Suns next season. Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Croatian forward will be signing a three-year, $27 million deal to stay in Phoenix.

The Suns first acquired Saric from the Minesotta Timberwolves on a trade during the 2019 NBA Draft. In his first season with Phoenix, he averaged 10.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists while being a starter in 52 out of his 66 appearances. It was his fourth year in the NBA.

Earlier in the free agency, the Suns made the big traded that landed them Chris Paul while sending Ricky Rubio to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The latter was then traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
