Phoenix Suns fire Earl Watson, name Jay Triano interim coach

But in those five words, point guard Eric Bledsoe made clear his feelings about his time with the Phoenix Suns.

Now, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Suns are "engaged in trade talks with several teams".

The regular season could not have started any worse for the Phoenix Suns.

UPDATE: After the game, Bell commented about the kick of his fullback. "I just don't like when guys kind of do dirty plays". Running back Le'Veon Bell voiced his frustration with Burfict on social media after the 29-14 win over the Bengals.

After tweeting "I Dont wanna be here" on Sunday night, and after coach Earl Watson was sacked, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports Bledsoe was sent home from morning shootaround on Monday and will not play against Sacramento tonight. The Suns are in rebuilding mode and aren't expected to win many games this season, but the problems in the organization go beyond Watson and his quick firing is a symptom of it.

Assistant coach Jay Triano, a former head coach of the Raptors, was named interim head coach.

Hours later, they lopped coach Earl Watson off the morbid husk of a basketball team that is the Phoenix Suns. He's hardly guaranteed to be a good head coach, or even want the job in Phoenix or anywhere else, but Nash is an outside the box option that might be just insane enough to work. "I think I have to do a better job of being a leader and a floor general out there". And the Suns, clearly on a mission to tank the season, have no incentive to hold Bledsoe for too high of a ransom.

Long the subject of trade rumors, the 27-year-old Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points and 3.0 assists this season - his fifth with the Suns.

Of course it's possible someone tweeted that message from Bledsoe's phone or something, but you've got to imagine he's thinking it, even if he didn't mean to say it. "Previous year the 6'1" guard averaged a career-best 21.2 points per game with 6.3 assists.
