It's been a crazy season so far in the NBA, with injuries left and right and more drama than The CW has this Fall. With Gordon Hayward and Jeremy Lin out of the season after heartbreaking injuries, one other player is trying to beat everyone else with his very own drama series [VIDEO] -- #Eric Bledsoe. The Kentucky standout has been the talk of the NBA after the falling out with his team of five years, the Phoenix Suns.

Late last month, a cryptic message on Eric Bledsoe's Twitter account seemingly revealed the player's displeasure for how his team has been performing. The Suns had started the 2017-18 NBA Season with a three-game losing streak and this didn't sit well with the guard.

After another big loss, he tweeted "I don't wanna be here" to his 221,000 followers. The post quickly went viral, with fans and the Suns taking it as the athlete's way of demanding a trade.

While Bledsoe later explained that he was talking about not wanting to be at a particular hair salon, the Suns management did not accept the alibi and later confirmed that Bledsoe "won't be with us going forward." This has also led to talks of an inevitable Eric Bledsoe trade.

Eric Bledsoe to Pistons possible

With the drama surrounding Bledsoe's tweets, the seven-year veteran is now being shipped off to another state. According to reports, an NBA trade is in the works between the Suns and the Detroit Pistons. Several sources have confirmed that the Pistons have shown interest in the former 18th overall pick.

They are also willing to offer #Reggie Jackson for the trade [VIDEO].

However, Marc Stein of the New York Times revealed that Phoenix is looking for more assets than just Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski also added that the team prefers having another team in the deal who can take in Reggie Jackson. In turn, they can get more favorable pieces for the Suns.

Pelicans joins Eric Bledsoe trade talks

The Suns got what they wanted with the New Orleans Pelicans joining the NBA trade talks on Nov. 2. However, according to Sports Illustrated, the talks have fizzled out.

Had the NBA deal pushed through, Phoenix would have received Detroit's 2019 first-round pick, NOLA's 2018 first-round pick, Omer Asik, and Alexis Ajinca. The Pistons would have acquired Bledsoe, and the New Orleans Pelicans would have received Jackson, who they have been wanting to sign for several years now.

However, nothing has pushed through, and the Suns are expected to check more offers for the 27-year-old guard.

Eric Bledsoe' stats in the first three games he played with his team this year were average. He scored 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting in his first game against the Portland Trail Blazers. He then posted 28 points in 30 minutes against the LA Lakers, before posting a poor four points in 24 minutes against the Los Angeles Clippers. #NBA Trade Rumors
