The Suns fired head coach Earl Watson hours after Bledsoe’s infamous tweet, and have yet to find a trade partner for the 27-year-old.
Per the AZ Republic:
Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe was fined $10,000 by the NBA for his Oct. 22 tweet in which he said, “I Dont wanna be here,” General Manager Ryan McDonough confirmed to azcentral sports Sunday.
Suns forward Jared Dudley said he understood the NBA’s position.
“The league doesn’t want to set a precedent of players going off on social media,” Dudley said. “If you ask Bled he probably regrets doing that. He probably would have done something in a different manner. I just think in general you can’t even demand a trade when you’re doing interviews. Just keep it more in house.”
