According to Basketball Insider’s Michael Scotto, the New York Knicks were the first team to call the Phoenix Suns regarding disgruntled Eric Bledsoe. However, the Suns asked for steep value in first-round draft pick Frank Ntilikina and center Willy Hernangómez.

It appears like the Knicks hold Ntilikina, who was the 8th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, in high regard. They would like to build around him and Kristaps Porziņģis.

Bledsoe, the 27-year-old, does not want to play for the Suns anymore. In addition, he has had a lot of injuries in his short career, as well.

It’s a gamble, but the Knicks are definitely passing on it, as it seems right now. Bledsoe averaged 21.2 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds last season for the Suns, who could only manage 24 wins.

Bledsoe has reportedly requested a trade dating back to last season. He was not pleased that former head coach Earl Watson decided to limit the playing time of its veterans in favor of the young players late last season.

He’s hopeful to be traded to a contender, but the Knicks are definitely not one of them. They may not even make the playoffs this season in the weak Eastern Conference.

Outside of the Knicks, the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets are also interested in him. If he’s looking to go to a place that could potentially win and make the playoffs, the Clippers would be the best bet.
