Dario Saric is reportedly staying in Phoenix.

The 26-year-old forward has agreed to a three-year, $27-million contract with the Suns, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Saric's return marks another strong move from the Suns as the franchise looks to get back to the post-season for the first time since 2010.

Last week, the Suns made a blockbuster deal to acquire All-Star point guard Chris Paul from the Oklahoma City Thunder and added forward Jae Crowder in free agency.

Saric, the 12th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft out of Croatia, averaged 10.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists on 47.6 per cent shooting from the field and 35.7 per cent from three with Phoenix last season.
