This is a big investment for someone who didn’t last the season due to injury and for someone who for most of his young career wasn’t always considered the best player on the team and was the back up point guard more often than not, although he did start at times with Chris Paul when he was with the Clippers. So according to published reports the Phoenix Suns signed Eric Bledsoe to a 5 year 70 million dollar contract.
Talks were contentous at times and it didn’t look like it would get done, yet you couldn’t tell by Bledsoe’s statement followed by the Suns statement as well…

”All summer, I knew that I really would be most comfortable coming back to Phoenix because of the great fans, my Suns teammates and our coaches,” Bledsoe said in a statement released by the team. ”I am very happy it was able to work out this way.”

”I learned long ago that it doesn’t matter how stormy the sea is as long as the ship comes in, and today we are thrilled that the ship has come in and Eric will remain a Sun for a long time,” Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said in a statement. ”He will be an integral part not only of our basketball team, but our Phoenix community.”

”We are thrilled Eric Bledsoe will be in a Phoenix Suns uniform for years to come,” general manager Ryan McDonough said. ”Eric is one the most exciting and dynamic two-way players in the league. He played very well for us on both ends of the floor last season and we feel he is well on his way to establishing himself as one of the elite players in the NBA.”
