Eric Bledsoe loves the Valley. So does his family. Hes purchased a home here and on Sunday he had a big smile on his face as about 90 kids raced up and down the floor on the second day of his summer camp at Supreme Courts in Chandler.

I like seeing the kids who support me, Bledsoe said. Its nice to finally meet them and talk to them.

The kids - more than 90 in all - had a ton of questions for Bledsoe. The one he heard most: Whos the toughest NBA player to cover?

I told them, Whoever Im playing that night, Bledsoe said. Theres always a good point guard in this league.

That list includes Bledsoe, of course. The question is, how long will he play that position for the Suns?

Kyrie Irving has told the Cleveland Cavaliers he wants to be traded and Bledsoes name has come up, in part because hes good friends with LeBron James. One rumor has the Suns getting involved as a third team in the deal, with Bledsoe and Tyson Chandler winding up in Cleveland.

Then theres the question of whether Bledsoe wants to remain in Phoenix. He has embraced the Valley, saying, I love everything about it. But as he told azcentral sports Sunday, At the same time I want to win.

At 27, Bledsoe doesnt fit into the Suns youth movement, or #timeline, as its been coined on social media. He said he definitely feels like an old man among his teammates.
