Phoenix reportedly sent its point guard home today.
Eric Bledsoe took to Twitter late on Sunday night to, basically, demand a trade.
The Suns’ starting point guard tweeted “I don’t wanna be here.” Later that night, Phoenix fired its head coach, Earl Watson.
This morning, Bledsoe reportedly met with Suns’ management, and he ended up getting sent home.
From ESPN’s Chris Haynes:
ESPN Sources: Eric Bledsoe met with team this morning before shootaround and he was sent home. He will not play tonight against Sacramento.

Bledsoe and the Suns reportedly met before the season about a potential trade – he was often included in the Kyrie trade rumors – but nothing to worked out.
Phoenix is terrible, with an extremely young roster, so it’s not surprising that a veteran point guard like Bledsoe would want out.
Finding a good trade partner is probably going to be difficult, though.
