Report: Knicks, Bucks, Clippers among teams interested in Bledsoe
Where is Eric Bledsoe going?
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.
