Suns' Bledsoe: 'I don't wanna be here'
Is Eric Bledsoe hoping his days with the Phoenix Suns are numbered?
The 27-year-old point guard tweeted the following Sunday:
Bledsoe's averaging 15.7 points on 40 percent shooting from the field and 30.8 percent from deep, to go along with three assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.3 steals over 27.7 minutes per game in the Suns' first three contests this season.
The tweet comes a day after Phoenix's latest embarrassing performance - a 42-point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, which still wasn't as bad as the historic 48-point loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on opening night. Suffice to say, it's been a rough four days for the club, and it appears to be taking a toll on the floor general.
Bledsoe, who was traded to the Suns in 2013, has been the subject of trade rumors for over a year, most recently being linked to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a potential Kyrie Irving deal. Irving has since been shipped to the Boston Celtics, but that doesn't necessarily mean Bledsoe's staying in the Valley of the Sun.
Phoenix is committed to a youth movement and building around shooting guard Devin Booker, so it could look to deal the veteran Bledsoe for a combination of young players and picks. He has about $30 million over two years remaining on his deal.
