The Phoenix Suns have reportedly reached an agreement with Slovenian guard Zoran Dragic on a two-year deal worth more than $4m and he is set to join up with his brother, Goran, at the franchise.
According to ESPN, both parties signed off on the deal on Thursday, with Dragic initiating buy-out proceedings with Unicaja Malaga for his contract which is believed to be worth around $1m.
The Suns are expected to contribute around $600,000 to that, and in turn they have offered Dragic a fully guaranteed contract for the next two years.
Zoran is now understood to be set to join the Suns and his brother Goran next week for training camp, with Phoenix then having two sets of brothers on their roster along with Marcus and Markieff Morris.
The 25-year-old enjoyed a successful FIBA World Cup in Spain this summer and reportedly caught the eye of several NBA franchises, but the Suns have won the race for his signature and will hope to use the move as a way of convincing Goran to stay in July 2015 when he has the option of opting out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent.
Given the arrival of Dragic, the Suns will have a significant headache selection ahead after also confirming the signing of guard Isaiah Thomas from the Sacramento Kings this summer.
Further, Eric Bledsoe also signed a new $70m deal earlier this week and so it remains to be seen who will be given a starting role and who will be consigned to the bench as an impact player.
Zoran averaged 14.1 points in 26.3 points per game at the FIBA World Cup, but he will also bring solid defensive skills to the team.
