When the Suns dealt for point guard Eric Bledsoe this summer from the Clippers, they knew they had a decision to make. Bledsoe is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He’s regarded as a guy who looks incredible in short stints off the bench, but hasn’t looked like a guy who can run your offense for 35 minutes. Does he get the big extension, or not?
How big it is remains to be seen, but it looks like the Suns are closing in on some kind of extension with the guy they call “Mini-LeBron.” From ArizonaSports.com:
“The Phoenix Suns are currently in talks with newly acquired guard Eric Bledsoe on a long-term contract extension. If the two sides can’t reach a deal by the end of the month, the 23-year-old combo guard would become a restricted free agent at the end of the season.”
