Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough says the franchise continues to have dialogue regarding an Eric Bledsoe trade, with no timetable being set as of yet.
Bledsoe has made it known he doesn’t want to play for the Suns anymore and not been around the team since his Twitter outburst.
McDonough told the Arizona Republic that while trade talks have been fluid, the team won’t rush into a deal just to move the disgruntled Bledsoe.
“McDonough said by text message Monday that he had no timetable for a potential Bledsoe trade. It’s been speculated that Phoenix could wait until Dec. 15, when players who signed as free agents in the offseason are eligible to be traded.
“We are open to doing a deal whenever the best offer presents itself,” McDonough said. “Any other comments or thoughts from me would be pure speculation at this point.”
The Suns are also reportedly attempting to include veteran center Tyson Chandler in their discussed Bledsoe trade scenarios.
Chandler says he’s heard the rumors and been in the league for too long to let them affect the way he goes about his business.
“At the end of the day, I’m a professional and this is my team,” Chandler said. “So until anything changes, I’m going to give them everything I’ve got every single day. Just like everybody else, I hear the rumblings. I hear my name being involved in things and trade rumors but I’m at the point where I couldn’t care less. I go out there and do my job until the time somebody tells me different. Then I’ll have to address it.”
