Famed frequenter of Phoenix-area salons Eric Bledsoe may not soon be dealt to another NBA squad, Scott Bordow of AZCentral.com is reporting.

Bledsoe tweeted on October 22nd, “I Dont wanna be here.” He later claimed he was referring to sitting at a hair salon. The next day he was sent home from a Suns shoot-around. He has not played for Phoenix since.

A trade is imminent, we all know that, but Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough shared in a text message that he’s in no hurry to move the 28-year-old point guard.

“We are open to doing a deal whenever the best offer presents itself,” McDonough said. “Any other comments or thoughts from me would be pure speculation at this point.”

Here’s hoping he doesn’t pass on the “best offer” only to take a lesser offer because he thought the best offer wasn’t the best offer at the time. Suns management wouldn’t do that, I’m sure.

The Milwaukee Bucks, Denver Nuggets, and New York Knicks are among the teams reportedly interested in obtaining Bledsoe’s services. Fearless leader of BSOTS Dave King thinks the Cleveland Cavaliers need to make a deal for Bled, like yesterday.

Where does Bledsoe go, and when does the deal happen?
