Suns GM Blames Bad Advice For Bledsoes Actions

Suns GM Blames Bad Advice For Bledsoes Actions

Suns GM Ryan McDonough believes Eric Bledsoe is receiving bad advice in his desire to get out of Phoenix, relays Chris Haynes of ESPN.

The remarks were made during an interview Tuesday with Arizona Sports 98.7 and are apparently a swipe at Bledsoes agent, Rich Paul, who represents several other high-profile clients, including LeBron James. Bledsoe reportedly had hoped to join James in Cleveland as part of a deal for Kyrie Irving and was depressed when that trade fell through.

I think Erics a good person, McDonough said. I think hes unfortunately gotten some bad advice and is listening to the wrong people. I think generally, any time you sign a contract, it doesnt only work one way. It works both ways, and for a guy with years on his contract to say or intimate he didnt want to be here anymore, I didnt find that to be appropriate, and I think if he says he wants to be a leader, thats the opposite of what a leader does and the opposite of what leadership is.

Bledsoe, 27, is currently in limbo after being sent home prior to Mondays game. It seems unlikely that he will ever play for Phoenix again, but the team hasnt made much progress in trade talks over the past 48 hours, with one source suggesting that the asking price is way too high.
