Report: Knicks, Bucks, Clippers among teams interested in Bledsoe
Where is Eric Bledsoe going?
The point guard's tenure with the Phoenix Suns is effectively over, with general manager Ryan McDonough telling reporters Monday: "He won't be with us going forward."
The team is reportedly engaged in trade talks with several clubs, including the New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, and Los Angeles Clippers about a deal involving Bledsoe, who tweeted Sunday he doesn't "wanna be here."
The Knicks reached out to the Suns about a potential transaction, ESPN's Ian Begley reported, while the Bucks are also interested, The New York Times' Marc Stein indicated. Also, the Clippers would welcome a reunion with Bledsoe, who began his career in L.A., notes The Washington Post's Tim Bontemps.

Bledsoe, 27, is coming off a career year in which he posted a career-high 21.1 points and 6.3 rebounds to go along with 4.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in his fourth year with the Suns. He's owed $14.5 million this season and $15 million for 2018-19.
It's believed he's hoping to latch on with a contender, which Phoenix is not. The club is off to a historically bad start, posting an overall point differential of minus-92 through three games. The rebuilding team shook up its coaching staff Sunday, ousting head coach Earl Watson and tabbing Jay Triano as his interim replacement.
