Eric Bledsoe Wants out of the Hair Salon
This is his explanation to the Suns Management when asked about the riddled tweet.
Yesterday, Eric Bledsoe the 27-year-old point guard and the best player of the Phoenix Suns this year took to twitter and posted a conspicuous message that got the NBA universe reacting, especially as it came after the announcement that their head coach Earl Watson has been fired for.
The Phoenix Suns have been on the dark side lately and while they have a number of young pieces to work with, they have not seen the light in recent years and the current situation just proved the predicament that they are in right now.
Eric Bledsoe has been a core piece of the Suns for four years. He has averaged no less than 17 points in each of the seasons but he also has been troubled by injury except in 2014-15 season where he played 81 games. He played an average of 45 games in three of his four seasons, this is half of the total games per NBA season.
Granted: Phoenix Suns is letting go of their perennial point guard
Here are a few teams which surfaced as a potential destination of Bledsoe:
Milwaukee Bucks: The Bucks already got a good point guard in Malcolm Brogdon but they may still be interested in an upgrade considering that they want to ensure that they make Giannis a happy camper if they want him to stay in Milwaukee. Having Eric Bledsoe would make the Bucks more dangerous especially with pick and role plays that involve the two. Getting Bledsoe would come at a high price and it may involve letting go of future drafts and young players like John Henson or possibly Brogdon.
: Cleveland is loaded with guards, guards who are injured that is. LeBron James ‘ team has always been in the conversation of getting Eric Bledsoe, in fact, they could have gotten Eric Bledsoe instead of Isiah Thomas if only Phoenix would have given more. Now Phoenix may need to settle for a number of second stringers like Channing Frye and Iman Shumpert. Eric Bledsoe if added to the roster would make the already crowded backcourt even stiffer.
New York Knicks: Eric Bledsoe in New York! Seems far-fetched but according to sources, the Suns is interested in young rookie Frank Ntilikina. This is a big risk for Phoenix but an exciting prospect for Bledsoe as he could team up with one of the rising stars in the NBA, Kriztaps.
Los Angeles Clippers: CP3 is hard to replace, even with Patrick Beverly and Milos Teodosic (injured) already in the lineup, Clippers may be looking for more upgrade in the point guard position and Eric Bledsoe could be their opportunity. Clippers may need to let go of draft pick, Wesley Johnson and the son of the head coach Austin Rivers.
There are other teams in the running so don’t be surprised if he gets traded somewhere else but one thing is for sure, Eric Bledsoe wants out of the Phoenix Hair Salon!
