NBA Rumors: Suns To Match Any Offer For Eric Bledsoe In Free Agency

The Lakers are in dire need of a point guard who can lead this team in the future. They seemingly will have a number of options.

A very intriguing one would be Phoenix Suns breakout star Eric Bledsoe, who will be a restricted free agent this summer. Supposedly the Lakers would be willing to overpay to bring him in, but that may not matter.

According to Adam Green of the Arizona Republic, Suns President of Basketball Operations, Lon Babby, appeared on the radio and indicated that the Suns will match any offer for the young point guard:

I think our answer to that is yes, that we know enough about Eric as a player. Even more importantly, we’ve lived with him now for almost a year as a person. We like everything about him. Like him as a teammate, like him as a representative of our franchise and everything that he stands for. He’s got a tremendous future.

It seems as if the Suns have every intention of making Bledsoe a key part of their future, and with good reason. Bledsoe averaged 18 points and six assists before undergoing knee surgery in January.

Even as Bledsoe is looking more like a longshot at this point, the Lakers still have a number of different options heading into the offseason.

Kyrie Irving sounds like he is ready to get out of Cleveland. And there are a couple of very interesting prospects in this year’s draft, one of whom is rising, while the other is going the opposite way.

After having to start six different players at point guard this season, the Lakers will be looking to find their one this offseason. Who that one will be, we still don’t know.
