    Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic (1) drives past New York’s Carmelo Anthony during a game in April. Dragic was selected Wednesday as the league’s Most Improved Player.

NEW YORK — Goran Dragic has been honored as the NBA’s Most Improved Player after his career year helped lead the Suns to 23 more wins this season.
The 6-foot-3 guard from Slovenia came into the season with a career scoring average of 9.5 points in five years. He averaged 20.3 points and 5.9 assists per game as Phoenix went 48-34 and just missed the playoffs in the tough Western Conference. Dragic shot 50.5 percent from the field and 40.8 percent on 3-pointers.
He received 408 of a possible 1,134 points, including 65 first-place votes, from a panel of 126 sports writers and broadcasters in the United States and Canada. Indiana’s Lance Stephenson was second with 158 points and 13 first-place votes, and New Orleans’ Anthony Davis third with 155 points and 16 first-place votes.
