On Sunday afternoon, Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe sent out a tweet to express his displeasure with the team, simply saying: “I don’t wanna be here.” As a result, the Suns have said that they are open to trading the former No. 18 overall pick in the 2010 Draft (Oklahoma City Thunder). In fact, Suns general manager Ryan McDonough sent Bledsoe home from Monday morning’s practice. Via Scott Bordow of azcentral.com: “McDonough said he and Bledsoe talked Sunday night and that Bledsoe told him his tweet wasn’t about his desire to leave the Suns but his wanting to leave a hair salon where he was waiting on his wife.” “I didn’t believe that to be true,” McDonough said in response. Shortly after news of Bledsoe’s availability got out, reports began to surface that stated Phoenix might be interested in a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Sam Amico of AmicoHoop.net, the Suns, like many other teams, have their eyes on the Cavs’ first round pick in next year’s Draft — a pick that was acquired in an offseason deal with the Boston Celtics.
