Suns' Goran Dragic wins 2013-14 Most Improved
The Suns' Goran Dragic has been named the 2013-14 Most Improved player in a landslide vote.
Dragic, who enjoyed his best season in the NBA, nearly led the Suns to an improbable postseason berth with 48 wins. He pulled in 65 first-place votes and 408 total points, topping runner-up Lance Stephenson who had 13 first-place votes and 158 total points.
Dragic, 27, averaged a career-best 20.3 points on 50.5 percent shooting plus 5.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds in 76 games. He really exploded for the Suns when backcourt mate Eric Bledsoe went down for two months with an injury and Dragic assumed the bulk of the offensive responsibilities for Phoenix. He scored a career-high 40 against the Pelicans on Feb. 28 in a 116-104 win.
Dragic was drafted 45th overall in 2006 by the Spurs.
