Do the Wolves have momentum towards a blockbuster Bledsoe trade? And is that even a good idea? The Wolves haven't hidden interest in acquiring Eric Bledsoe, both before and after the Kevin Love trade. However, this week... More #Twolves fodder to digest: told they have talked to the Suns about Bledsoe even after the Love trade. HOWEVER, no real match. — Darren Wolfson (@DarrenWolfson) September 18, 2014 NBA sources tell me the Twolves are prepared to offer Eric Bledsoe a Max contract #nba — Jude LaCava (@judefox10) September 19, 2014 Take with a massive grain of salt,...

According to several reports, the Minnesota Timberwolves are making a strong push to land Eric Bledsoe on their rebuilding team. Initial reports from Jude LaCava of Fox 10 in Phoenix have the Wolves making a straight offer to Bledsoe. NBA sources tell me the Twolves are prepared to offer Eric Bledsoe a Max contract #nba — Jude LaCava (@judefox10) September 19, 2014 The Wolves, however, don't have the salary cap space to make that kind of deal without unloading some other contracts which makes this ESPN report from respected Brian Windhorst sound more feasible. With just days...

Let him go. Zoran's a cooler name than Eric. Already astutely covered by our own Dave King, some guy named LeBron James thinks that the Phoenix Suns should "break bread," when it comes to contract negotiations with guard Eric Bledsoe. Or less eloquently put, "Hey! Give my friend money!" If you missed anything, Paul Coro recounts the stalemate that has been the Summer of 2014 between Bledsoe and the Suns. Nothing you haven't already heard, but here's a picture of fellow Rich Paul clients Bledsoe and James working out together in Birmingham, Alabama. Beware though, there's an overload of...

In the ongoing stalemate between Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns, each side has a good case. And that's the problem. By now, you've seen the simple instagram post from LeBron James imploring the Phoenix Suns to be reasonable, sit down and talk it over to get his buddy a new contract. Poor Eric Bledsoe is still without an NBA contract, and LeBron feels badly for him. That's what LeBron meant, right? By using the term "break bread", he simply meant that Bledsoe and the Suns should sit down for a meal and talk it over like adults to come to a mutual agreement? Nope, can't be that. The Suns...

Eric Bledsoe is working out with his agent buddy LeBron James, but perhaps more importantly, James had some things to say about the contract negotiations between Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns. LeBron James posted this picture to his Instagram. It shouldn't come as a surprise to see these two working out together, as they are close friends, and even call each other family. Eric Bledsoe and James share the same agent, Rich Paul, but it looks like Bron is doing a little agenting of his own here. He seems to be calling on Phoenix to cough up that max contract for the "Future All-Star",...

The Suns now are getting unsolicited advice from LeBron James about what to do for restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe.

The Lakers appear set to make a play for one or both of the Slash Brothers next summer...Could they actually pull it off? In the midst of the fog surrounding Eric Bledsoe's future with the Suns, a new threat is apparently lying in wait just hoping to take advantage of the Phoenix Suns contract uncertainty. However, they aren't just looking to steal away Bledsoe, they also may have their hearts set on Goran Dragic as well. In a report released on ESPN, Marc Stein identifies the Los Angeles Lakers as potential threats to pounce on both Bledsoe and Dragic after this season. In order for...

If he wants to be traded, where could Eric Bledsoe go? Here are the options for the other 29 teams in the league. The rumor mill is working once again, and the latest is that the Suns are actively shopping Eric Bledsoe in sign and trade scenarios. While some of the rumors are wildly outlandish (the 13th hour attempt to nab Kevin Love, for instance), there is likely some substance to these rumors. The real question is, if the Suns are shopping Bledsoe, who are they shopping him to, and what are the chances that an actual deal could go down? Assuming a trade involving Bledsoe is most likely...

It's a league of competition. But Isaiah Thomas still wants Eric Bledsoe back, even though Bledsoe will take his starting job. And Goran Dragic wants Bledsoe back, even though Bledsoe could be making twice what Dragic makes. In any professional sport, your teammates are your competition as much as any opponent. You have to be competitive to win a starting position or even big minutes. On the Phoenix Suns, who project to have three staring-caliber point guards on the roster next season, competition will be at hand all season long. Competition over camaraderie I recently became more aware of...

The Suns have contacted at least one team and taken inquiries from others regarding the possibility of executing a sign-and-trade deal with Eric Bledsoe.

Could the Atlanta Hawks be a potential landing spot for restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe? Restricted free agency can be a tough situation for a player and Eric Bledsoe's current position with the Phoenix Suns illustrates that. On one hand he is a high upside talent but as a restricted free agent he has little to no leverage in negotiations with the Suns. The situation has played itself out all summer and Bledsoe may be forced to roll the dice and sign Phoenix's qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Suns are well aware that this could be a possibility and...
