Suns and Eric Bledsoe have agreed to a 5-year, $70 million deal.

The Minnesota Timberwolves were interested in Bledsoe as recently as one week ago in what would have been a sign-and-trade deal, but that fell through. Bledsoe has now locked himself up long term with the Suns and will avoid the headache of contract negotiations hanging over his head.

The Suns and restricted free-agent guard Eric Bledsoe have progressed significantly in contract talks with hopes of reaching an extension before the start of training camp.

The 24-year-old Bledsoe missed half of the 2013-14 season after undergoing knee surgery due to an injury to his meniscus. While on the floor he averaged 17.7 points per game and 5.5 assists. He failed to get a max deal in restricted free agency and turned down an extension offer from the Suns that would have paid him $12 million annually.

Suns have 'no interest' in a sign-and-trade with the Timberwolves for guard Eric Bledsoe.

The Suns have no interest because the Timberwolves aren't really offering anything up but a slew of expiring, bad contracts. Phoenix is expecting a high-end player in return for Bledsoe, something Minnesota doesn't seem willing to give here.

Eric Bledsoe received a max offer sheet from the Timberwolves.

This max offer sheet is a contract worth $63 million over four years in what would be a sign-and-trade deal. As of now, it seems more likely that Bledsoe will play this season with the Phoenix Suns for just $3.7 million, but he would become an unrestricted free agent next summer and would be free to sign with any team he chooses.

Eric Bledsoe said the Suns are using restricted free agency rules against him.

Bledsoe is the top free agent on the market still, but with Suns GM Ryan McDonough saying that he will match any offer that comes Bledsoe's way, teams aren't lining up to try and sign him. Had he been an unrestricted free agent, he would have already had a max deal handed to him.

Phoenix Suns president Lon Babby remains committed to keeping Eric Bledsoe with the team. 

Bledsoe and the Suns were pretty far apart in negotiations with regard to both years and dollars, so this could be a fairly lengthy process if they hope to sign him.The only thing really working in the team's favor is the reduced demand out there for him. They'll probably come to some sort of eventual agreement, but it won't be without its fair share of drama as well.

The Lakers considered a run at Eric Bledsoe prior to signing Carlos Boozer. The Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks are other teams who have interest in Bledsoe.

Did the Lakers really choose an aging veteran forward over Eric Bledsoe? That is terrible if that is the case. The Suns offered Bledsoe a four year deal worth $48 million, which he declined for some dumb reason. The Rockets are chomping at the bit to sign a big time player after they were spurned by their free agent targets and Chandler Parsons left them for the Mavericks.

Update: Suns offered Eric Bledsoe four-year, $48 million contract. Bledsoe wants max of five-years, $80 million. 

Now that's quite the gap in negotiations. This one could get ugly if neither side is willing to budge. Of course, considering Bledsoe's agent was so busy dealing with Lebron's deal with the Cavs, perhaps he'll now be able to devote more of his time to his other clients. Stay tuned for more NBA drama.

The Phoenix Suns are offering restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe much less than the maximum salary that he is seeking, and thus are not close to an agreement on a new contract.

After averaging 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game last season, Bledsoe and his agent are looking for a max contract. His production definitely warrants a big time contract, but if the Suns are able to acquire Isaiah Thomas in a sign-and-trade with the Kings, they may be willing to part ways with this rising star. Whether he stays with the Suns or finds a new home he will be a great fantasy asset to deploy on a nightly basis next season.

Suns are in early stages of contract talks with Eric Bledsoe's agent. 

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.3 steals over 32.9 minutes per game for the Suns last year. The Suns gave him a $3,726,966 qualifying offer so they could retain the right to match any offer, but would like to see about getting a longer-termed deal worked out for the 23-year-old guard. He may have a little trouble getting things worked out quickly as he shares an agent with Lebron James and that guy is on the NBA tour trying to negotiate a deal on his [James'] behalf.
