While Cleveland Cavaliers superstar Kyrie Irving mentioned teams he wanted to play, the Phoenix Suns (not listed) may make the most sense.
In an article from ESPN’s Kevin Pelton, Eric Bledsoe was mentioned as a centerpiece of a deal for Irving.
Bledsoe, who shares an agent with LeBron James, had a career-high in three-pointers made last season. The Suns also have enough cap space to take on Irving and help save Cleveland on their high payroll next season.
LeBron James looks at Eric Bledsoe as a little brother. In 2014, the Cleveland Cavaliers star worked out with the Suns point guard during the summer. At the time, Bledsoe and the Suns were in the midst of contract negotiations. James – who shares the same agent as Bledsoe – publicly urged the Suns to “break bread” and get a deal done. Since then, their relationship has remained strong. In the past, James has called Bledsoe a future All-Star.
