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. ANALYST: Matthew Beck Mobile App
