Report: ‘Wolves, Suns In S&T Talks For Bledsoe That Would Net Him Max Contract

Eric Bledsoe

The Eric Bledsoe saga is almost over. It’s conclusion, though, might be far different than most anyone imagined. According to multiple reports, the Minnesota Timberwolves have engaged the Phoenix Suns in sign-and-trade talks involving the disgruntled restricted free agent, who would sign a four-year, max-level contract with the ‘Wolves if the sides can reach an agreement.

Report: Goran Dragic Plans To Opt Out Next Summer Then Re-Sign With The Suns

Goran Dragic

We can file this under, duh. Suns guard and Slovenian wunderkind, Goran Dragic has a $7.5 million player option next summer. Dragic averaged career highs across the board on offense this past season while getting named to the All-NBA Third Team, so it stands to reason he’d exercise his option and become a free agent. Today he seemed to make it clear he’ll do just that when the time comes, but Suns fans shouldn’t worry about losing the Dragon, he wants to stay in town. Read More »

Report: Suns Could Lose Bledsoe, Dragic In Free Agency; Lakers Interested

Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic

The 2014-2015 Los Angeles Lakers are a patchwork team. Carlos Boozer and Jeremy Lin are playing on expiring contracts, Steve Nash will likely retire after this season, and Los Angeles has a team option on 2015-2016 for the re-signed Jordan Hill. Even Kobe Bryant isn’t in the Lakers’ long-term plans; there’s a very real possibility he hangs up his Nikes after next season. Only rookie Julius Randle and Nick Young will surely be with Los Angeles past 2016. Read More »

Ranking The NBA’s Biggest Offseason Losers

Kobe Bryant

Anytime you have winners you’re bound to have some people that lose. This year’s summer is no exception: there were plenty of teams and players who “lost” this past offseason. After counting down this summer’s “winners,” it’s only right that we give an equal share of the limelight to those whose situation was less fortunate than their NBA counterparts. Let’s take a look at some of the “Biggest Losers” of the offseason (sorry…there’s no association to the weight loss show on this one, unless we’re counting LeBron’s newer, skinnier body as a loss).

Report: Suns Owner Says Team Hasn’t Heard From Bledsoe In Four Months

Eric Bledsoe

Maybe the impasse between restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns is insurmountable after all. All recent momentum has been trending against the dynamo guard returning to the desert, including Bledsoe’s belief that the Suns are “using restricted free agency against” him and that the sides are apart several million dollars per season in contract negotiations. The least encouraging sign of a reunion, though, might be team owner Robert Sarver’s recent remarks that the Phoenix front office brass hasn’t talked to Bledsoe in several months. Read More »

Our All-Star Soccer Squad Starring NBA Players

Steve Nash

The games are similar, basketball and soccer. Both are contact sports with little protective equipment; both have goals (or baskets) on the two sides of the field (or court) where a player must put the ball in to score points. Both have situations where a costly turnover could quickly turn into a counterattack or fast-break and cost a team points. Both games require elite athleticism, and players from both sports get paid tons of money to play their game at an elite level.

That’s where the similarities end between soccer and basketball, but that hasn’t stopped us from compiling a full soccer team with NBA stars. Read More »

Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond

Over a month into the free agency period, restricted free agent Greg Monroe and the Detroit Pistons remain stuck with both sides failing to arrive on an amount for an extension. It calls to mind another restricted free agent looking for a bigger deal in the desert. Read More »
