Eric Bledsoe is currently exiled by Phoenix Suns management as they consider their options to trade the disgruntled point guard. John Wall of the Washington Wizards is a good friend of Bledsoe's and feels bad for his former Kentucky teammate.
"I talk to him all the time," Wall told NBC Sports Washington. "He's just sitting back and being a professional. He can't do nothing about it. He doesn't want to be there. He wants to go somewhere else. It's kind of all in the Suns' hands and where they want to trade him to and what they want to get back for him. He's still working out every day and being a dad at home."
On Thursday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Suns, if they sent Bledsoe to the Detroit Pistons, would bring in a third team to take back Reggie Jackson.
A report from Sports Illustrated claims the New Orleans Pelicans were the third team in one trade scenario with the Suns and Pistons, but all talks are now dead.
Bledsoe has been linked with the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic, LA Clippers and Pistons.
