The 2015 NBA Draft will take place this Thursday (June 25) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and there will be a share of drama. Reports are that Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe is being offered to the New York Knicks for the number 4 pick in the upcoming draft. According to ESPN insider Chad Ford it seems to be a real possibility for this trade to happen.
“I definitely think that could be an option. That’s the sort of deal the Knicks would look at. But for cap reasons, would have to happen after the draft.”
This seems like an odd thing for the Suns to be considering. Midway though the season, the Suns traded away both Isiah Thomas and Gordon Dragic because of issues with a three point guard system. Making this a bit more confusing is that just last year Bledsoe signed a 5 year 70 million deal to stay in the desert.

For the Knicks this could be an all time steal. Getting a point guard, who they desperately need, to play alone side Carmelo Anthony, with great upside can be amazing. Bledsoe averaged 17.0 points, 6.1 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game, after signing his new deal. Bledsoe could also be used to get other free-agents to want to come to the Garden and play.
