Free agent Knight sees future with Suns alongside Bledsoe


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) Suns guard Brandon Knight will be a restricted free agent this offseason, but a shared playmaker role next to Eric Bledsoe has him thinking about the long-term with the organization, per The Arizona Republic.

Knight, who can be signed to an offer sheet by any team in the league starting July 1, relished the opportunity to play alongside Bledsoe.

"I thought it was fine," Knight said. "If Eric was a selfish guy, then I think it wouldn't work but both of us being pretty unselfish guys and really just wanting to win and also being familiar with each other, I think that helps the situation."

Knight averaged 17 points, 5.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game this season -- the best statistical numbers of his career -- but hopes to continue to increase his role with the Suns.

"I'll continue to do the same things that I did this past year to continue to get better," Knight said. "For me, it's more of a team thing. I really want to try to push the guys on the Suns and this organization to be better, not just myself. I think true leaders make people around them better and that's what it's going to take for us to really take that next step. We've got to have each and every guy get better, not just myself but our entire team has to take steps this summer. It starts right now."

Bledsoe, who also went 2 of 3 from 3-point range, did it all for the Suns in the contest. He pulled down eight rebounds, dished out four assists, added four steals and chipped in one block.

It was Bledsoe's fourth 20-plus point game of the month and first time reaching 30 points since early February.

"I told him, he's got to be more aggressive for us if we are going to make this playoff push," teammate P.J. Tucker said. "We need him to be aggressive on offense and defense because that pushes our team and it gets everybody else open."

Bledsoe scored 21 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the field, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range in Friday's 96-87 loss to the Hawks.

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.
