The Phoenix Suns have been looking to trade Eric Bledsoe since the first week of the season but have yet to complete a deal for the high-scoring point guard. According to Suns general manager Ryan McDonough, the team is going to wait for the best deal possible, which means Bledsoe could stay in Phoenix until the NBA's trade deadline of Feb. 8, 2018.

According to NBA insider Marc Stein, the Detroit Pistons have shown interest in Bledsoe and the Suns would like to have Pistons' guard Reggie Jackson sent to a third-team.

The Pistons have a 5-3 record and have some solid players to make a run at the playoffs. The frontcourt includes Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond, who have posted strong numbers this season.

Stein also reported that the Suns have an interest in including Tyson Chandler in a Bledsoe trade. Such a deal would be for salary-cap purposes, as Chandler is in the third year of a four-year, $52 million contract and is slated to earn $13 million this season.

Bledsoe, 27, has not played since Oct. 21 and has appeared in just three games. On Oct. 22, Bledsoe posted on Twitter: "I don't want to be here" and at about the same time as when the Suns fired head coach Earl Watson.

The Suns have been down this road before with a top player. Point guards Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic were both traded during the season after reports that they were unhappy in Phoenix.

Aside from the Pistons, the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, and Denver Nuggets have been rumored to be interested in Bledsoe.

In 2016-17, Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists per game.
