Breaking: Eric Bledsoe sent home from practice, will not play tonight vs. Kings

Eric Bledsoe

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe met with the team this morning and was sent home from practice, he will not play today against the Sacramento Kings, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

Executives around the league are expecting an inevitable trade for the 27-year-old in the coming days, according to Haynes.

Bledsoe is coming off a four-point outing against the L.A. Clippers on Saturday, a 42-point loss only days after the Suns received a proverbial ass-whooping at the hands of the Portland Trail Blazers sans C.J. McCollum, who sat the game out due to a suspension.

The Alabama product has been upset with the direction of the team and now with Earl Watson fired, there’s only more dysfunction awaiting a franchise that is hopeful to grow through its young assets.

Phoenix has every intention to make Devin Booker the cornerstone player of this team, and has even taken on more ball-handling duties this season, despite an often careless output, reflective on his eight turnovers during his last two outings.

Bledsoe was unhappy even dating back to last season, when Watson took the executive decision to sit him on a healthy scratch, saying it was a front office decision to make way for the young players on the team.

The Suns wanted to tank badly, garnering the second-worst record in the league after the Brooklyn Nets, notching only 24 wins in the season.
