There’s been reports about the New York Knicks possibly trading their No. 4 pick in the upcoming 2015 draft and now they have their first major offer.  After a lengthy off-season contract dispute, the Phoenix Suns signed Eric Bledsoe last summer and he gave them a strong season — 17 points and 6.1 assists a game, he led the team in Win Shares (seven) and had the highest PER of any player on the roster at the end of the season.  However, the Suns are shopping him around as we head into the NBA Draft Thursday.

Reports Sean Deveney of The Sporting News:

The Suns had talks with the Knicks about dealing the fourth pick for point guard Eric Bledsoe and the No. 13 pick, but Phoenix has not been limited to the Knicks in that regard. The Suns have been dangling Bledsoe in trade offers this offseason and are likely to continue to do so after the draft if Bledsoe is not moved this week, sources confirmed.

The Knicks are very much committed to the triangle as president Phil Jackson has reiterated so Bledsoe wouldn’t quite be their guy in this case as he’s a ball dominant point guard.  The Knicks are also focusing on picking up a big man in free agency with their eyes set on Greg Monroe.  It’ll be interesting to see what they do with the draft pick.
