Earlier this morning, the NBA fined Bledsoe $10,000 for his Tweet on Oct. 22nd which read, “I don’t wanna be here.”
The Suns and Detroit Pistons held talks centered around Bledsoe and Reggie Jackson, but discussions fell through and the teams are no longer conversing.
Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists last season in 66 games with Phoenix.
The Suns are now 4-5 on the season after firing head coach Earl Watson and sending Bledsoe home.
