Suns expect to keep Eric Bledsoe, everybody's talking about Giannis the Point Guard

Suns expect to keep Eric Bledsoe, everybody's talking about Giannis the Point Guard

Plus a look back at the performance of Milwaukee's rookie sensation in Las Vegas. So is Eric Bledsoe coming over or what? AZ Central: Phoenix Suns "expect" Eric Bledsoe to returnIt stands to reason that, even on the internet, there's only so much room for offseason trade rumors surrounding big-name players. So every megabyte of text compiled on the continuing Kevin Love-Andrew Wiggins trade saga is one less available for covering Eric Bledsoe's ongoing free agency. That's the best explanation for the suddenly quiet situation in Phoenix, where the Suns are reportedly content to play the...

Going Gorilla: Tough buckets and tough negotiations

Isaiah Thomas and T.J. Warren will help the Suns get tough buckets in crunch time and the playoffs. But how much of a good thing is too much? Also, Eric Bledsoe's contract negotiations leave me feeling further alienated from the stoic star... Hey there readers... Yes, both of you. Going Gorilla is back by popular demand! And by popular demand I mean one person was insistent that I resuscitate the weekly segment of opinionated prose. So here goes nothing (or at least very close to it). Tough Buckets "That's a tough skill to have. A lot of guys, they can shoot open shots but when you get...

Bledsoe rejects $48M offer from Suns, more Summer League buzz

Also, Giannis Antetokounmpo's point guard play is turning heads. As the free agency market dries up, the focus on Eric Bledsoe's free agency continues to intensify. With the Milwaukee Bucks frequently mentioned as a possible suitor for Bledsoe should he leave the Phoenix Suns, any developments are being closely watched. Here's the latest: Sources: Suns offered Eric Bledsoe 4-year, $48 million contract. Bledsoe wants max of 5 years, $80 million. Sides far apart — Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) July 17, 2014 Almost a twofold difference in total contract value, plus an extra year?...

Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe at an impasse created by the NBA

Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe at an impasse created by the NBA

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe wants a lot of money. The Suns want to pay him a lot of money. But the Suns have to consider the ramifications of the CBA when limiting their offers to the restricted free agent. The free agency landscape is tough terrain to navigate. The very best players in the league want to play in the best cities for the most money. But not only that, they want to play with their friends and they want to win a lot of games at the same time. In some way, the NBA is becoming a highly paid adult version of AAU ball where players just want to be with like-skilled...

In the episode we kick things off reviewing the comments and departure of Channing Frye from the two local interviews he did with the Arizona Republic and 620 Radio. Then we look at all the recent free-agency news from the Suns over the past week with Isaiah Thomas, Anthony Tolliver, and now the "32 Million Dollar" drama with the team and Eric Bledsoe.

Broussard: Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe as much as $32 million apart

Broussard: Phoenix Suns, Eric Bledsoe as much as $32 million apart

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe wants the whole enchilada, while the Phoenix Suns would rather stay with what the best PG on the market got this year. It's a standoff. Now we know, at least far as you can trust a report of this type, from Chris Broussard. So, the Phoenix Suns want to sign Bledsoe to a contract just like proven veteran starter Kyle Lowry got two weeks ago as an unrestricted free agent. Twelve million per year. Bledsoe, on the other hand, wants to break the bank with a nearly-full mini-max 5 year contract that averages $16 million per year. The $80 million is not...

Milwaukee Bucks Free Agency: Mulling an offer sheet for Eric Bledsoe, Ilyasova unlikely to be traded?

The latest Bucks news from NBA Free Agency. We now turn our eyes toward the continuing NBA Free Agency period. Here's the latest updates from the Bucks, who seem to finally be doing stuff. The latest on Milwaukee's rumored interest in Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe. Gery Woelfel talked about the pursuit on 1250 WSSP, calling it "a possibility" and saying he's more optimistic about it than he was two weeks ago. However, the big hang-up is that the Suns have apparently been telling everybody that they will match any offer Bledsoe might receive. The Bucks don't currently have enough...

Hornacek on Bledsoe: "Just a matter of time" before Suns reach deal

Jeff Hornacek told Doug and Wolf on KTAR that Bledsoe is actively testing the market, but it is only a matter a time before he reaches a deal with the Suns. The free agency frenzy has begun to slow to a crawl, and Eric Bledsoe apparently has yet to receive a serious offer from anyone. Aside from a rumor that quickly evaporated about the Milwaukee Bucks preparing an offer sheet, Bledsoe's name has been surprisingly scarce among the daily onslaught of free agency rumors. When fellow restricted free agents Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons received max offer sheets, logically one would have...

Spears: Phoenix Suns negotiating contract with Eric Bledsoe

As we all expected, the Phoenix Suns are holding true to their word and are right now negotiating a new contract with Eric Bledsoe before he has to sign any offers from another team. Just as they always said they would do, the Phoenix Suns are reportedly negotiating a new contract with restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe right now with the intention of signing him themselves rather than matching someone else's offer sheet. Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports was likely following up with Bledsoe's people on the report that the Milwaukee Bucks are considering an offer sheet to Bledsoe. If Bledsoe...

Stein: Milwaukee Bucks considering offer for Phoenix Suns RFA Eric Bledsoe

Looks like Eric Bledsoe has a suitor, but is it a suitor he wants? According to Marc Stein of ESPN, we have our first big tire-kicking of Eric Bledsoe coming from Milwaukee. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. I can't imagine Bledsoe wanting to play in Milwaukee, but money talks louder than anything else. The Suns will almost certainly match any Bledsoe offer, so don't start worrying about losing one of the Suns best players. However, a signed offer sheet to either Suns RFA Tucker or Bledsoe could mess up the Suns desired timing. The Suns would like to re-sign Bledsoe and...

Eric Bledsoe profile: Best free agent not named LeBron?

The competition for acquiring the services of restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe will be strong, but is it possible that he's still being underrated. Eric Bledsoe has taken a very unusual path to superstardom's doorstep. Bledsoe was a big-time recruit out of the state of Alabama, and was wooed to Kentucky to play under "star guard maker" John Calipari's tutelage. This should have made him one of college basketball's biggest names, but because Calipari had also lured arguably the country's top two recruits in John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins as well, Bledsoe was relegated to something of a...

The market for Phoenix Suns Eric Bledsoe might be secondary

Any number of 20 different teams would likely love to have Eric Bledsoe. The only teams who don't want him would be those with All-Stars or young studs already in place. But as of yet, no team has openly leaked interest in Bledsoe. Yes, I used the term "openly leaked" because that's how it is these days. Teams don't hold media scrums to list out their targets. They simply let someone know on the sly, via text or phone, who they want. Or, the agents leak interested teams to media folks. Sometimes it's to drum up business, and sometimes it's lies, lies, and damn lies. But still, there's been...
