NBA Trades: DeAndre Jordan asked Eric Bledsoe to join Los Angeles Clippers

In late 2017, the Suns' front office chose to shut down veterans Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and Brandon Knight, as Phoenix tanked to the No. 4 overall pick in this summer's draft where they selected Josh Jackson.

The team announced Sunday night that associate head coach Jay Triano was taking over for Watson as interim head coach. Head Coach Earl Watson has been fired by the club after amassing a 33-85 record in 118 games at the helm.

Bledsoe had reportedly engaged with McDonough and the team's owner Robert Sarver in the preseason about wanting a trade.

"He said he was at a hair salon".

Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points, 3.0 assists and 2.3 rebounds through the first three games of the season. "I didn't believe that to be true", McDonough said. The Suns have told him to go home, and they will work to trade him.

Bledsoe later tried to put that tweet in context, although McDonough wasn't buying the excuse.

They've lost two games by 40-plus points and allowed 132 points in a loss to the Lakers.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Suns are getting odds of -1 point against the Kings. As the second-youngest Head Coach in the NBA, Watson developed a strong reputation for prioritizing the development of a young Suns group that includes Devin Booker, Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender, Tyler Ulis, and Josh Jackson.

It's unclear if the tweet was related to Watson's firing, but Bledsoe fired it off just about an hour before Wojnarowski reported Watson was out in Phoenix. "I think I have to do a better job of being a leader and a floor general out there".

Now into his fifth season with the Suns, Bledsoe has yet to see the playoffs since leaving Los Angeles, and understandably would be eager to find himself in a different situation with a chance to compete. He is entering his eighth National Basketball Association season and owns career averages of 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists.
