Suns name Canadian Jay Triano interim head coach after firing Earl Watson

Watson had a 33-85 record as the Suns head coach over parts of three seasons.

Many people assumed Bledsoe was saying he didn't want to be in Phoenix as a member of the Suns, who dropped to 0-3 with a loss to the Clippers on Saturday night.

The point guard said in a very simple, but clear tweet: "I Dont wanna be here", which may be his unofficial trade request. New Orleans head coach Alvin Gentry said the team was uncertain if Nelson would be worked into the starting lineup alongside Jrue Holiday, or back him at the point. The team also dismissed three members of Watson's staff, including Bjorkgren, and player development coaches Mehmet Okur and Jason Fraser.

Bledsoe, 27, will not play in the team's Monday night game against the Sacramento Kings, fueling rumors that his time as a Sun is coming to a close.

The 27-year-old spent the first three years of his National Basketball Association career playing alongside Jordan for the Clippers, and fortunately for him, the team is now short a starting guard with Milos Teodosic out indefinitely with a foot injury, so he could be an option. The trade also makes sense because rookie point guard Milos Teodosic is out indefinitely.

This leaves very little room for 26-year-old John Henson to see the floor, as he has played just 16.7 minutes per game to start the season for the Bucks so far. While both players have two years remaining on their contracts, it's unclear if they'll be able to co-exist. The Suns have now reached out to teams about possible trades for the guard. Since then, several teams around the National Basketball Association have called the Cavs' front office with inquiries about its availability. McDonough should have fired Watson months ago. ESPN's Zach Lowe wrote in early October that "the Suns will surely listen if and when suitors call for Eric Bledsoe". The Suns' organizations argue that Bledsoe hasn't improved since young star Devin Booker took more responsibilities for playmaking.
