It has been quite the roller-coaster with the Phoenix Suns and Eric Bledsoe and the Suns have been more than patient with the restricted free agent.
It is looking like the Phoenix Suns organization have come to their breaking point with the saga. As reported earlier, Robert Sarver, Suns owner, has not heard from Bledsoe in four months and it doesn’t appear as though the two are coming to an agreement any time soon.
Earlier this off-season, Phoenix offered Bledsoe a four-year, $48 million contract but the former Wildcat talent laughed and suggested that the Suns were disrespecting him.
Now it appears as though they are tired of the shenanigans. Fox Sports is reporting that the team is looking to trade Bledsoe. That’s the word from Jude LaCava who appeared on FoxSports 910 radio and stated that Bledsoe is now on the trade block
“You can take this to the bank, so to speak, the Suns are now discussing trade possibilities for Eric Bledsoe.”
“That’s the new chapter to this and I wouldn’t back off of that information. I think it’s 100% correct.”
If Eric Bledsoe really isn’t interested in signing the Phoenix Suns contract offer, it’s a move they have to make. The last thing they want is for Bledsoe to sign a one-year qualifying offer because he’d be an unrestricted free agent at season end and such a deal would also give him a full no-trade clause.
As the days go on it looks as if the Suns and Bledsoe will never be able to get a deal done. If the Suns are indeed trying to trade him there will be plenty of suitors for his services.
