Report: Teams taken aback by asking price for Eric Bledsoe

The Suns have talked Eric Bledsoe trades with the Knicks, Bucks, Nuggets and others.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

In the initial conversations that the Suns had with teams yesterday " teams like the Bucks and the Nuggets and the Knicks and the Clippers are some of the teams that theyve talked to " their asking price was very high. Some of the team that Ive talked to were taken aback by what the Suns asked for.

If theyre going to keep their asking price very high " which is usually, in some of these talks, a young player and a draft pick or a young player and an established player " they may have to wait a while for the market to play out.

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough, via Arizona Sports 98.7 FM:

Weve gotten some pretty good offers, especially in the last 24 hours or so. Were comfortable with the offers were getting. There are a few teams in particular that are being pretty aggressive. Contrary to what you might have heard or read, there is a strong market for Eric Bledsoe.

I think we heard from all 29 teams at this point.

Both sides are obviously trying to spin the situation in their favor. The Suns want to portray a robust competition for Bledsoe, driving up their return. Other teams want to paint Phoenix as unreasonable and get McDonough to lower his asking price.
