The Phoenix Suns have not spoken to Eric Bledsoe in four months. They would like for that to change, but it appears that the door is closed at the moment.

Suns owner Robert Sarver told Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic that the team still holds out hope of signing Bledsoe to a long-term deal.

"We value Eric as a player," Sarver said. "I hope at some point we'll be able to sit down and meet with those guys and make a deal."
