The Phoenix Suns are off to a miserable 0-3 start, including two losses by over 40 points. Now, the highest paid player on the team said he doesn’t want to be with the team anymore.
Point guard Eric Bledsoe tweeted “I don’t wanna be here” on Sunday afternoon.
Maybe Bledsoe was at his in-laws or something and that’s where he doesn’t want to be, but it sure seems like he wants to be traded away from Phoenix.
Bledsoe was a first round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Kentucky, and he played the first three years of his career with the Los Angeles Clippers. He’s averaging 15.7 points per game this season for the Suns and 13.1 ppg for his career.
Bledsoe is the highest paid player on the Suns’ roster, but he’s only making $14.5 million this year and $15 million next year. He has a tradable contract, and the Suns could look to move him soon. Bledsoe has had injury issues in the past, so it’s unclear what the market would be for him.
