The Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets have discussed a trade centered on Suns guard Eric Bledsoe, according to a report from Michael Scott of Basketball Insiders.
In return, the Suns would receive Nuggets point guard Emmanuel Mudiay. Other pieces would be involved, Scotto reported.
League sources told Amico Hoops on Monday the Suns have begun aggressively attempting to trade Bledsoe. “He will not play another game for them,” an opposing executive predicted.
Bledsoe sent out a cryptic tweet Sunday, just hours before it was revealed the team fired coach Earl Watson.
“I don’t wanna be here,” Bledsoe wrote.
Bledsoe, 27, is 6-foot-1 and averaging 15.7 points in three games this season — all losses. He averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists in 66 games last year.
Mudiay is averaging 9.0 points in two games this season. He averaged 11.9 points and 3.9 assists in 55 games last season.
Mudiay, 21, was drafted by the Nuggets with the No. 7 overall pick in 2015.
