by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Suns PG Eric Bledsoe scores career-high 33 points vs. Blazers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe scored a career-high 33 points on 11 of 22 shooting from the field and 10 of 15 shooting from the free-throw line in his team's 118-113 win over the Blazers Wednesday.

Bledsoe topped his two 30-point efforts, both from last April, to deliver a new personal best in scoring. He also racked up 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in 34 minutes in the win, his team's fourth straight. Bledsoe's next matchup comes Friday against the Rockets.


Eric Bledsoe becoming more consistent option for Phoenix


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Though his scoring is down a bit from last season, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe is doing the his coach Jeff Hornacek wants him to do: be more consistent.

"Some games were great, some games were horrible," Hornacek said. "There was kind of no middle ground. I think this year has leveled that out where we don't have some of the games where he's just having a tough night. Even his bad nights are still halfway decent nowadays so that's a good step. The next step is going to be wherever we play, not matter who we're playing, that he comes out and plays like it's a NBA Finals game. He's done better at that but I think he can still do a little bit better."

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds in an injury-shortened 2013 season. Now, he is averaging 16.4 points, 5.9 assists and 5.2 rebounds.

Suns PG Eric Bledsoe toiling away on mid-range jumper


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Slashing Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe is working on expanding his offensive horizons. He is attempting to improve his mid-range jumper.

Less than one-fifth of his shots last season were hoisted between 16 to 24 feet from the basket. He is seeking to take greater advantage of defenders backing off to counter his quickness to the hoop. And that makes Jeff Hornacek happy.

"I see a lot of Kevin Johnson in his strength and ability to get to the basket," Hornacek told the Arizona Republic. "If you can come down full bore and hit the pull-up jumper from anywhere between 15 and 20 feet, teams are going to just be back there going, 'What the heck do I do?' You can't just lay back and play the drive because then he just kills you with the jumper."

A successful addition to his arsenal could make Bledsoe a force. He blossomed last season to average 17.7 points and 5.5 assists per game.


What does Eric Bledsoe re-signing mean?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Suns finally ended their standoff with restricted free agent guard Eric Bledsoe Wednesday, as they brought the 24-year-old back into the fold on a massive five-year contract. That leaves the Suns with a crowded and clowdy backcourt situation, as far as Fantasy owners are concerned.

Bledsoe combined with Goran Dragic to form one of the most productive backcourts in the league, as both players thrived on the stat sheet. Bledsoe averaged a career-high 17.7 points per game, a mark Dragic bested en route to his own career-high of 20.3 points per game.

Part of the reason both players were so productive is the team relied heavily on each for creating and scoring, which lessened the pressure on both. Though the Suns weren't hard up for productive scorers, they lacked off-the-dribble creators beyond those two, a flaw they shored up with the addition of Isaiah Thomas on a three-year deal this offseason. Thomas is, of course, the big loser in this scenario.

Thomas was one of the most productive guards in the league himself a year ago, racking up 20.3 points and 6.3 assists per game while soaking up 26.3 percent of the Kings' possessions in 34.7 minutes per game. He should see all of those numbers fall off drastically this season, making him an extremely risky pickup for Fantasy. He should still find a decent amount of playing time, but it is hard to imagine the diminutive Thomas being a consistent starting Fantasy option if Bledsoe stays healthy. He is more of a handcuff option, if you invest heavily in Bledsoe early. 

Gerald Green, who played 36 percent of his minutes at shooting guard last season, will also lose out, following his breakout campaign. He still has value, but is more of a low-end option for category-based formats.


Eric Bledsoe signs five-year deal with Suns


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Suns' protracted negotiations with guard Eric Bledsoe finally came to an end Wednesday, as ESPN.com reports the two sides have finally agreed on a deal.

According to reports, the Suns have signed Bledsoe to a five-year deal worth $70 million, with all five years guaranteed. The two sides had been unable to reach an agreement prior with reports indicating they were as much as $4 million per year apart in negotiations, with Bledsoe reportedly threatening to sign his $3.7 million qualifying offer as a restricted free agent for one year.

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds in just 32.9 minutes per game a year ago, but was limited to 43 games due to knee surgery. 


Suns extend qualifying offers to Eric Bledsoe, P.J. Tucker


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) The Suns officially extended qualifying offers to guards Eric Bledsoe and P.J. Tucker Friday, making them restricted free agents.

The Suns could see plenty of turnover in their roster this offseason, and both players could be coveted in free agency. However, the team retains matching rights for both and are likely to return to Phoenix next season after being key pieces of the team's near-miss of a playoff spot.  


Eric Bledsoe continues solid play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe has found his way in recent games, after looking a bit rusty in his return from knee surgery.

Bledsoe put up his fourth 20-point game in a row Wednesday against the Wizards, after failing to do so in each of his first five games back. He scored 23 points on 8 of 18 shooting with three 3-pointers made, and filled up the box score nicely in 37 minutes. Bledsoe added six rebounds, seven assists and three steals, though he also turned the ball over seven times, which has been an issue recently.

Bledsoe has been cleared for a bigger role over his last four games, topping 30 minutes in each. He is averaging 16.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game since returning from injury. 


Eric Bledsoe looks solid in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) The Suns brought Eric Bledsoe off the bench for his first appearance in nearly two and a half months, but that doesn't mean they eased him back into action. Bledsoe played 32 minutes and nearly recorded a double-double in a 110-101 loss to the Cavaliers.

Bledsoe clearly had some rust to knock off with his jump shot, as he finished the game 5 of 16 from the field and just 1 of 6 from three-point range. He was still productive overall, finishing with 15 points and nine assists without a turnover in his 32 minutes of action. 

Bledsoe's got plenty of catching up to do after missing a big chunk of the season following surgery on his knee. If Wednesday was any indication, however, he isn't going to have much trouble doing so. He is averaging 17.8 points and 5.9 assists per game in 25 appearances this season. 


Eric Bledsoe makes his return Wednesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) As expected, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe is making his much anticipated return to action Wednesday, having fully recovered from knee surgery. Bledsoe, who has been out since Dec. 30, will come off the bench in his first action, as confirmed by the team's digital reporter.

Bledsoe has played in just 24 of the team's 63 games, but was enjoying a breakout season prior to the injury. He is averaging 18.0 points and 5.8 assists on the season. 


Eric Bledsoe still shooting for return vs. Cavs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe is still targeting a return Wednesday against the Cavaliers. He was ruled out for Monday against his former team, the Clippers, according to the Arizona Republic.

Bledsoe has not played since Dec. 30, and has been rehabbing from knee surgery since Jan. 10. He was enjoying the best season of his career prior to the injury, averaging 18.0 points and 5.8 assists per game in 24 games.


Eric Bledsoe could return Monday


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Suns guard Eric Bledsoe has been targetting a Wednesday return from his two month absence, but the Arizona Republic reported that he could take the floor as soon as Monday when Phoenix travels to play the Clippers. 

"It's up to him," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "“For the first few games, we’ll bring him off the bench."

Hornacek cited the Suns' success with Bledsoe starting alongside Goran Dragic, but was quick to point out how well Gerald Green had done filling in as a starter.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
