It has been nearly two weeks since the Phoenix Suns sent home guard Eric Bledsoe after he stated his desires to leave Phoenix on Twitter. As Suns GM Ryan McDonough searches for a trade partner to acquire Bledsoe, it seems the two sides have come to a temporary resolution.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports Eric Bledsoe will return to Suns team facilities and work out with staff members this week.
Sources: As potential trade prolongs, Phoenix's Eric Bledsoe planning to return to Suns' facility, work with staff members, early this week.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) November 5, 2017
Bledsoe reportedly still won't re-join the team. He will use the facilities to stay in shape as the Suns wait for the right trade offer. The Suns could wait until Dec. 15 when players who were signed this offseason become eligible to trade.
There's no plan for Bledsoe to return to team; instead use facility again to stay in game shape and work with staff, sources said. https://t.co/wfGnMozHZz— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) November 5, 2017
Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 66 games last season. The 27-year-old point guard played with the LA Clippers for three seasons before joining Phoenix in 2013.
