There is drama brewing within the #Phoenix Suns, who are having a bad start to the 2017-18 NBA season. One of the storylines involves starting point guard #Eric Bledsoe. In a recent tweet, it seemed like Bledsoe no longer wants to be with the Suns.

The Suns currently hold a 0-3 record, two of their losses were blowouts. On Sunday, they reportedly fired Earl Watson as their head coach. The issues in Phoenix could be the reasons why Bledsoe aims to leave. If he does ask for a trade, a team that might be interested in him is the #Los Angeles Clippers. Center DeAndre Jordan may have even started the recruitment process with this tweet:

Bledsoe's professional career began with the Clippers.

He spent three seasons representing Lob City before getting traded to the Suns ahead of the 2013-14 season. In Phoenix, the 27-year-old became a franchise player. Unfortunately, they are yet to reach the playoffs, and with the way this season started for them, it looks like the drought is going to continue.

Just in time

The tweet by Eric Bledsoe is timely since the Los Angeles Clippers might be in need of another playmaker. On Saturday, the Clippers' Milos Teodosic injured his foot [VIDEO] (plantar fascia) in a 130-88 win over the Phoenix Suns. According to ESPN, the Clippers announced that the 30-year-old Serbian "will be out indefinitely."

As of the moment, it is uncertain if the Clippers will add another point guard or if they are targeting Bledsoe. The organization has assets to complete a trade.

However, it is unlikely for a deal to materialize at this point of the season.

Clippers' PG scenario

In the absence of Milos Teodosic, the Los Angeles Clippers will rely on rookie Jawun Evans, who they selected with the 39th overall pick in June's draft. Austin Rivers may also be assigned the ball-handling duties at times. The Clippers are running thin at the point guard position, that is why trading for the Phoenix Suns' Eric Bledsoe remains a possibility.

Teams' schedules

There are still problems for the Phoenix Suns, but they need to focus immediately. The Suns are returning to action tonight as they open a two-game homestand. They will try to capture their first victory of the season when they host the Sacramento Kings. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers are looking to keep their record immaculate. The Clippers will complete their two-game homestand on Tuesday when they play against Rudy Gobert and the Utah Jazz.
