Eric Bledsoe has done an A+ job tweeting himself out of the hellhole known as the Phoenix Suns. His next destination (Denver, New York, Milwaukee, Los Angeles?) has yet to be decided, but the writing is on the wall after he was sent home and declared inactive for tonight’s game against the Kings.
ESPN Sources: Eric Bledsoe met with team this morning before shootaround and he was sent home. He will not play tonight against Sacramento.

All of this drama stems from Eric tweeting, “I don’t wanna be here”, the day after his Suns got thumped by the Clippers. He apparently told Suns GM Ryan McDonough the tweet was about him being at a hair salon with his girl, but that shockingly didn’t fly:

On that hair salon note, now seems like a good time to introduce you all to Eric’s wife, Morgan. She’s been with Eric since 2008 and you’ll never guess what what her occupation is… a hair stylist! Of course, that doesn’t really absolve Eric of lying but it’s plausible.
Eric and Morgan got married this past July after getting engaged in 2016. They have two kids together and should enjoy life on a contender, much like previous Suns castoffs Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic.
