Croatian power forward Dario Saric has re-signed with the Phoenix Suns. The deal is worth a reported $27 million over three years. The five-year veteran has previously played for the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

Saric had the best field goal percentage of his career with the Suns in 2019-2020, shooting 47.6 percent. He averaged 10.7 points per game, while pulling down 6.2 rebounds per game. He started in 51 of the 66 games in which he saw the floor last season.
With the Suns’ addition of veteran guard Chris Paul, the team clearly wants to take the next step towards the playoffs and contention. Saric is likely to be a front court piece that can add depth, while fitting in nicely in the starting lineup if necessary.
