From ESPN’s Chris Haynes:
The 27-year-old point guard had met with Suns owner Robert Sarver and McDonough during the preseason and requested a trade, sources told ESPN. […]
Bledsoe was then told by management, according to sources, that the team had underperformed ever since he was given starting point guard responsibilities.
Bledsoe, of course, was not traded. And after an 0-3 start, he tweeted, “I don’t wanna be here.”
I Dont wanna be here
