    Bledsoe can get up to 4 years, $63M from an outside team. If he thinks that he can get more than that, with the extra year, from the Suns, maybe this explains why he hasn't signed an outside offer and have the Suns either match it or not.

    This is the player the rockets need to go after. Not sure why morey isn't doing it.

    ^I think the max we can offer him is in the $12m range. If he accepts, PHX would undoubtedly match and we'd just be pawns. No reason to bother

    not sure he is worth the max, because he can't stay healthy, but he has MAJOR potential. I would love to take him from Phoenix... I would def rather pay him the max than Parsons.

    Tbh, need an upgrade in both, although TJones has shown some potential. Bev is a great backup

    Unless we do a poison pill contract... w/trade kicker etc etc... I would deal bev/t jones/etc in a heartbeat for Bledsoe

    We were only able to offer bosh ~20M and the difference is because of the Ariza signing.

    So what's gonna happen if he couldn't reach agreement with the Suns before the season starts and no other teams offer him a contract knowing Suns will match?

    He'll play out the final season of his contract and look forward to unrestricted free agency

    Considering Lowry only got that, it is hard to argue Bledsoe is worth substantially more.
