Sep 25, 2014, 6:34 PM | Updated: 9:26 pm

The Phoenix Suns will be reuniting Goran Dragic with his brother, as reports are saying the team has agreed to a contract with Zoran Dragic.

The deal is for a reported $3.5 million over two years, according to Sam Amick.

According to AZCentral Sports’ Paul Coro, Dragic’s contract with Unicaja Malaga, whom he currently plays for, includes a $1.1 million buyout, of which the Suns are allowed to contribute a maximum of $600,000.

The Suns will add Zoran, 25, to a group of guards that includes his brother, Goran, recently re-signed Eric Bledsoe, offseason acquisition Isaiah Thomas, and returning guards Gerald Green and Archie Goodwin.

The Suns have been in contract negotiations with Zoran since early September after his Slovenian team was knocked out of the FIBA World Cup. The guard wowed scouts at the tournament, averaging 12.9 points, 4 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game as a starter for Slovenia.

Zoran spent two years with Unicaja in Spain’s Liga ACB, and last season averaged 10.6 points per game.

The Dragic brothers will be the second pair of siblings in Phoenix, joining twin forwards Marcus and Markieff Morris.
