Eric Bledsoe met with Suns before season, requested trade

24 October 2017

Bledsoe, 27, will not play in the team's Monday night game against the Sacramento Kings, fueling rumors that his time as a Sun is coming to a close.

League sources told ESPN's Ian Begley that the New York Knicks are among the teams that have reached out about a possible Bledsoe trade.

Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe met with the team about wanting to be traded before the season started, according to radio host John Gambadoro on Arizona Sports 98.7. His last chance in Phoenix came Sunday when he tweeted, "I don't want to be here", which was soon followed by the Suns firing head coach Earl Watson.

Canadian men's national team head coach Jay Triano is back in charge of an NBA team, at least for now. "This is a turning of the page", McDonough said, explaining further why Bledsoe was sent home. "He won't be with us going forward".

"He said he was at a hair salon", McDonough told reporters.

"I don't believe that to be true". It was the Suns' second loss by 40-plus points this season.

Triano, from Tillsonburg, Ont., had been serving as an associate coach with Watson. He compiled a 33-85 record.

Where will Bledsoe get traded?

Bledsoe is the Suns' highest-paid player this season, making $14.5 million.

Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists for the Suns this season - his fifth with the team.

The 27-year-old spent the first three years of his National Basketball Association career playing alongside Jordan for the Clippers, and fortunately for him, the team is now short a starting guard with Milos Teodosic out indefinitely with a foot injury, so he could be an option.
