The New York Knicks have taken interest in trading for point guard Eric Bledsoe.

The Phoenix Suns have placed their starting point guard on the trading block, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Bledsoe reportedly met with the Suns early this morning, and formally requested trade.

He will not be active for Phoenix’s game against Sacramento.


This is after Bledsoe tweeted a not so cryptic desire to leave Phoenix, saying “I don’t want to be here.”

It was Ian Begley of ESPN New York who reported the Knicks’ interest, among other teams.

New York hasn’t had a qualified point guard in the starting slot for quite some time.

Ramon Sessions currently serves as the Knicks’ starting point guard, an aged veteran with his best years behind him.

It’s hard to see an package being put together that works for both sides, with Courtney Lee and Kyle O’Quinn as the Knicks top assets.

New York will have to top offers from Denver, Los Angeles (Clippers), and Milwaukee to bring Bledsoe to the Knicks.

All with more assets, and draft picks to offer.

The Suns’ point guard is averaging 15.7 points and 3 assists per game this season.
