The New York Knicks need to trade for Phoenix Suns’ guard Eric Bledsoe.
One of the worst kept secrets around the NBA has been that Phoenix Suns’ point guard Eric Bledsoe wants to be traded.
After a start to the season where the Suns have been completely blown out and embarrassed on the court, their head coach has already been fired and Bledsoe admitted on Twitter that he wants to leave the desert.

I’m not sure what the Knicks would give up for the 27 year-old Bledsoe, but he would instantly upgrade their back court with young rookie Frank Ntilikina dealing with yet another injury.
Acquiring Bledsoe would also allow Ntilikina to develop and learn behind a proven NBA point guard as he transitions from playing in France to playing in America.
Comment below and give us your thoughts. Should the Knicks trade for Bledsoe?
