The Suns are working on trading Eric Bledsoe – and maybe Tyson Chandler.

With Bledsoe headed out, Chandler fits even less than he did before in Phoenix – and the center didn’t fit before. He’s 35 and maybe still capable of helping a winning team with his rebounding and finishing (and rim protection still if he gets to a team that demands more effort?). To maximize his complementary skills, Chandler must play with savvy teammates.

The Suns don’t have many of those. They’re young and still learning how to play, losing a lot while they do. Already headed toward the basement anyway, Phoenix has made habit of tanking to maximize its lottery position.

But Chandler is due $26,585,000 over this season and next, sinking his trade value.
