Suns fire Watson; Bledsoe trade next?

Eric Bledsoe will use the Suns' facility to stay in shape.

The lowly Suns have fired head coach Earl Watson, according to a report by ESPN.

The Suns are 0-3 on the young season and they’ve suffered two 40-plus-point losses already.

Watson had a record of 33-85 as the Suns’ coach.

Meanwhile, point guard Eric Bledsoe caused quite the stir Sunday afternoon as well when he tweeted the following message:

According to 98.7 Phoenix, Bledsoe’s tweet does in fact summarize his current state of mind and you can’t blame the explosive slasher for wanting out.

The Suns’ brass are aware of Bledsoe’s tweet and frustrations about being on the roster.

As ESPN notes, Bledsoe could be fined by the NBA for his remarks.

Bledsoe, 27, averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists last season in 66 games. He is one of the most explosive point guards in the league and a bevy of winning teams would be interested in trading for him.

The Cavs and Suns held talks this summer on a possible package deal that would have sent Bledsoe to Cleveland and Kyrie Irving to Phoenix, but nothing ever materialized.

Clippers center DeAndre Jordan appears to want Bledsoe to come back to LA. Bledsoe was on the Clippers from 2010-2013.

    Yes, Bledsoe needs to go but the Suns’ problems all start at the top with Sarver.

  2. Nets pick?
