According to ESPN, the Suns offered Eric Bledsoe to Minnesota for Love in a sign-and-trade deal.
Bledsoe and the Suns are at odds over the emerging guard’s contract situation.
Bledsoe is a restricted free agent and has been offered a 4-year, $48 million deal by the team. Bledsoe is seeking a max deal for 5 years and $80 million from Phoenix, or a max deal of four years and $64 million if another team signs him to a max offer sheet.
After a contentious offseason where the relationship between Bledsoe and the Suns soured, reports said this week that the Suns were finally willing to sign-and-trade deals for the point guard. They’re not going to get Love for him, but this further shows they’re looking to trade Bledsoe.
