Default Goran Dragic coming back to Suns

Dragic is the No.1 in stature and in number after he switched from the jersey No.2 he wore as the No.2. Like when the Suns first traded Nash 14 years ago, it took Dragic going away and establishing himself elsewhere for the Suns to hand him the reins. On Thursday, Dragic signed a four-year, $30 million contract that could be worth more with $1 million annual All-Star bonuses. Dragic has a player option on the fourth year.

"Many of us, I think, believe that had Goran not left, he would've never had the opportunity to spread his wings and grow in the way he has," said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby, who will sign and introduce the Suns' other big free-agent acquisition, Michael Beasley, Friday. "We're thrilled that he did come back. There is an old expression that you have to big enough to admit your mistakes, strong enough to profit from them and strong enough to correct them."
