Suns_Eric_Bledsoe_2013 [2]The Phoenix Suns failed to come to an agreement on an extension with point guard Eric Bledsoe Thursday night, meaning the young point guard they acquired last offseason will become a restricted free agent this summer.

“There is no rookie extension with Eric but that doesn’t in any way suggest that we are not excited that Eric is a Sun and we look forward to Eric being a Suns for a long time,” said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby, who has been engaged in extension talks over the past month with Mark Termini, the former agent who works as a negotiator for Bledsoe’s agent, Rich Paul.

“It’s a hard thing to do. We had numerous conversations over the past few weeks. We had a good, professional exchange of ideas.”
