Best Trade Destinations For Eric Bledsoe
In the year 2012, Jamal Crawford nicknamed Eric Bledsoe “Mini-Lebron” because of his quickness, athleticism, and high motor. So, what changed? An injury-filled tenure with the Phoenix Suns has reduced Bledsoe’s value in the market. However, he is still serviceable and can add value to one of the title contenders.
Let us look at some of the teams that can add him to improve their rotation:
#6 Utah Jazz
While many believe that the Cleveland Cavaliers might be the frontrunners for Bledsoe, I believe that the Utah Jazz might be the right fit. Adding Bledsoe to a young Jazz team increases the versatility of the team. One can imagine him throwing lobs to Rudy Gobert, running and gunning with Ricky Rubio, or forming a potent defensive unit with Gobert and Rubio. Even though he is short (6 ft), he is very potent in the open floor and can knock down open shots inside and outside the 3-point line. Overall, Bledsoe might be that missing piece that helps Utah to reach its first conference finals since 1999.
