Welcome back to Phoenix Goran.

Just hours after the Suns agreed to send Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Suns have already found his replacement. Per Marc Stein, the Suns have agreed to terms with free agent point guard and former Sun Goran Dragic.

Suns move quickly after Steve Nash trade and strike four-year deal with Goran Dragic worth $34 million, sources tell ESPN

— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 5, 2012

Additionally, the fourth year of the contract is a player option per reports.

This is a pretty decent contract, considering Dragic was reportedly looking for a deal starting at $10 million per year.

What say you Suns fan? Does the Dragon's return make Nash's move to L.A. any easier to swallow?

*UPDATE*

This contract is looking better and better.

Goran Dragic contract tweak: it's a 4-year, $30M deal with potential to be $34M from annual $1M All-Star bonuses. 4th year is player option.

SuperCool Beas - here we come!

Ok, so it's not great and wonderful news, but it's better than a stick in the eye (or a knife in the back). If you can't get over the Nash thingy, then scroll down and keep ranting.

But at least the Suns are moving forward. They agreed to a deal with former #2 pick in the draft, Michael Beasley today.

Not a bad deal, really. Sure it's another middling contract on a team full of middling contracts, but he's a better basketball player than both Omer Asik and Landry Fields. And he's only 23 years old.

Good signing?
