Given the stalemates that have gone on with Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe and Pistons forward Greg Monroe, the best option for both players would seem to be some sort of sign-and-trade. Bledsoe has been shopped around the league for the past month, while the Washington Post’s Michael Lee reports that Monroe’s agent, David Falk, has sought sign-and-trade deals to get his client out of Detroit. But, as one league general manager told Sporting News this week, their potential free agency next summer has cooled the market for each. Sporting News

Yesterday, local sportscaster Jude LaCava went on FoxSports 910 radio, "The Drive", and told the world that the Phoenix Suns have now hung out the "Open for Business" sign on Eric Bledsoe's locker. "I'll tell you this, and I think this is the first time it's reported," Jude LaCava said on Tuesday, "I do believe in my NBA sources. You can take this to the bank, so to speak, the Suns are now discussing trade possibilities for Eric Bledsoe. That's the new chapter to this and I wouldn't back off of that information. I think it's 100% correct." Bright Side of the Sun

"I think it's safe to say 'open for business'," LaCava said. "The decision makers, [managing partner Robert] Sarver and [PBO Lon] Babby and hopefully Ryan McDonough, they are open to that possibility. It's got to be right. It's got to be the right return in what they are looking for. It's to the point that if they can accommodate Bledsoe and get something they want in return, trade possibilities are very, very real and they have been discussed." Bright Side of the Sun

The relationship between the two sides has soured, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the negotiations. The person also said Bledsoe, 24, strongly is considering signing the Suns' qualifying offer for $3.726 million — good for the 2014-15 season — to become an unrestricted free agent after next summer.

While the lines of communication between Bledsoe and the Suns may be cut off at the moment, Wojnarowski said it's not too late to reopen them. "A lot of this, I think, is posture. The idea that it's so poisonous and they can't go back - everybody can go back. I don't buy that. But the Suns will have to make a decision going forward with him. "If there was a number a little higher than ($12 million per year) that could get a deal done, I'd be shocked if they didn't do it." Arizona's Sports Page

Six weeks into free agency, Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver expressed how he still wants to sign Bledsoe to a long-term contract with the Suns. He also just wants to be able to talk to Bledsoe. "We value Eric as a player," Sarver said. "I hope at some point we'll be able to sit down and meet with those guys and make a deal." Arizona Republic
