Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe somewhat cryptically tweeted “I don’t want to be here,” Sunday night, and on Monday afternoon the team sent the player home after a meeting, according to ESPN.

Bledsoe, 27, will not play in the team’s Monday night game against the Sacramento Kings, fueling rumors that his time as a Sun is coming to a close.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Suns’ general manager, Ryan McDonough, is pursuing trade talks with several teams.

Bledsoe had reportedly engaged with McDonough and the team’s owner Robert Sarver in the preseason about wanting a trade. The Suns released their head coach, Earl Watson, just before Bledsoe’s tweet on Sunday.

The Suns have started the season 0-3, with two huge losses. The team fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 130-88 on Saturday and started the season off with the biggest blow out in the team's history: a 124-76 Wednesday loss to the Portland Trailblazers.

Deadspin’s managing editor, Dan Ley, cited the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Clippers as possible fits as trade destinations.

Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points and three assists in the first three games this year. Last year the 6’1” guard averaged a career-best 21.2 points per game with 6.3 assists.

Bledsoe was traded to the Suns before the 2013-2014 season from the Clippers.
