The price can be debated, but Bledsoe did make the Suns a better team with his dynamic two-way play. He drastically improved their team defense. But he played only 43 games, mostly due to a second right-knee surgery. "We would not have made this commitment in terms of years or money if we had significant concerns about Eric's health," McDonough said. "Nobody knows Eric's medical history or where he's at better than us." Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Suns and guard Eric Bledsoe have agreed to a five-year contract, the team announced today. “I learned long ago that it doesn’t matter how stormy the sea is as long as the ship comes in and today we are thrilled that the ship has come in and Eric will remain a Sun for a long time,” said President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. “He will be an integral part not only of our basketball team, but our Phoenix community.” NBA.com

Dragic emerged as a star last season, Rondo has been one in the past, and Bledsoe has the tools to be a two-way force. The Hornets should at least call Phoenix about a sign-and-trade for Bledsoe, though it would be a long shot. The Suns have shown little interest in any Bledsoe deal, per sources around the league, and unless Phoenix adores Vonleh, the Hornets don’t appear to have the goods. Grantland

The Suns have become the leader in the pursuit of shooting guard Zoran Dragic, the younger brother of Suns star guard Goran Dragic. One other NBA team remains in serious pursuit but negotiations for a contract and a buyout from Dragic's Spanish club have progressed to the point that a deal could be finalized early this week.

Money is one thing; women are another altogether. “We joke that the moment you sign your contract, you become far more handsome than the day before,” Taylor said. Detlef Schrempf, who was at the program to share his own experience in the N.B.A. in the 1980s and ’90s, agreed. “You’re talking about superstar athletes and male hormones,” he said. “For those who want to partake, it’s easily accessible 24/7.” To deter the rookies from partaking, there was a slide show juxtaposing photographs of beautiful semi-clad women with photographs of hideously diseased genitalia. There was also a handout listing how much child support the rookies would be required to pay in various states, should they find themselves in sudden possession of a child after a one- night stand. “It was disturbing,” said Tyler Ennis, 20, a freshman star at Syracuse University who was drafted to play for the Phoenix Suns.
