Confident Dragic returns to run Suns' show
PHOENIX (AP) - Goran Dragic is back with the Suns, pronouncing himself a far more confident, vocal player than the one Phoenix traded away to Houston not long ago.
As evidence, he displayed his new jersey bearing No. 1 at the news conference announcing his return Thursday, a clear symbol that he's not Steve Nash's understudy anymore.
The popular point guard signed a four-year, $30 million contract, which can rise to $34 million with incentives, to come back to Phoenix, bolstered by his play as a starter for 28 games with the Houston Rockets last season.Copyright © 2005 The Associated Press.
