BREAKING: My Twitter sources have informed me that Jared Dudley has agreed to a 3-year/$30 million deal to return back to Phoenix.
Paul Coro was first on the scene, beating out the powerhouse source hounds over at The Vertical:
The Suns have agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with Jared Dudley.— Paul Coro (@paulcoro) July 2, 2016
Take that Woj! Yeah!
It is not a coincidence that Dudley got the same amount of many and years as Mirza Teletovic as the Suns were likely left with the decision of having to choose between the two. Due to the familiarity and overall fan intrigue of Dudley, it is no surprise that he was the choice.
Jared Dudley is a perfect veteran presence for the baby Suns. Good value at $10M/season too.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) July 2, 2016
Zach Lowe thinks we did well! This is good!
Ryan McDonough was able to steer clear of the early free agency shenanigans and snag a fairly-priced deal for a viable veteran presence.
Happy times all around.
