Dario Saric has agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal to remain with the Phoenix Suns, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Suns continue to lock up key pieces as the franchise hopes to return to the postseason for the first time since the 2009-2010 season. Saric posted 10.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game whole averaging 24.7 minutes and shooting 35.7-percent from three. He's a decent real life contributor but would need an injury to either Mikal Bridges or Cameron Johnson to make a fantasy impact.
Dario Saric put up 18 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, and four assists in 24 minutes of play off the bench Tuesday.
Saric has flirted with a double-double in every game thus far in the seeding round. He's been a fantasy value throughout in the bubble and should remain so in the Suns seeding round finale on Thursday.
Dario Saric played well again off the bench on Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks. Saric scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting and added eight rebounds.
Saric continues to play well off the bench during the NBA restart. Saric is seeing consistent minutes playing more than 22 minutes in both of the Suns' games since the NBA season has resumed. Saric seems to have a consistent role on the Suns, and is playing well in that role. Saric can be a good contributor in deeper fantasy leagues and should have some value in daily fantasy.
Dario Saric scored 16 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3PT, 6-6 FT), grabbed six rebounds, dished out three assists, and one steal in 27 minutes of play in Friday’s 125-112 win over the Washington Wizards.
Saric was a huge spark for the Suns' bench, playing exceptionally well in 27 minutes in tonight's game. Saric will continue to soak up minutes in the absence of Kelly Oubre, Jr., but DFS players shouldn't rely on Saric for this level of contribution consistently. Saric is averaging 10.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in just under 25 minutes per game across 58 games this season.
Dario Saric has been ruled out of Tuesday's team scrimmage with an ankle issue per head coach Monty Williams.
Saric tweaked his left ankle in a scrimmage against the Celtics on Sunday when he stepped on teammate Frank Kaminsky's foot. He has been "walking normally" and received a lot of treatment on Monday according to Monty Williams. So it sounds like Tuesday's scratch was just precautionary. He is trending towards being available for Friday's restart against the Wizards and he makes for an intriguing fantasy option. Kelly Oubre Jr. appears doubtful for the restart as well, which would boost Saric's stock further. Before the shut down the forward was averaging 10.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 46.2-percent from the floor and 34.1-percent from three. The talent is there and if he can start playing with consistency he can become a fantasy asset.
