The Phoenix Suns are looking like they may be able to get Eric Bledsoe to resolve his contract situation with the team and that may happen in the near future.
But the Suns may only have Bledsoe for one more year as he’d be inking a qualifying offer with the Suns which would make him an unrestricted free agent next summer. That means teams are going to look at possibly pursuing Bledsoe to fix their situation and the Boston Celtics are one of those teams.
According to the Boston Herald, one name we could hear when it comes to replacing Rajon Rondo is Eric Bledsoe.
It looks as if Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe will sign the qualifying offer to return to the Suns, but there has been some hard feelings during contract negotiations. Bledsoe may be inclined to bolt as an unrestricted free agent next summer. The Celtics have always liked Bledsoe and he could be a potential replacement for Rondo, if he were to leave
This is all assuming that Rondo leaves or isn’t on the roster when the offseason rolls around next summer. Marcus Smart cannot be forgotten about either as he seems to be the starter of the future for the Celtics, but adding Bledsoe as and forming a tandem would be a pretty decent way to replace Rondo.
