When Chris Paul sat out three-straight games for the Los Angeles Clippers with a bruised knee, Eric Bledsoe stepped in and impressed. He always seems to do so when given the opportunity. That is why the Clippers don't want to let him go, but that is also why so many teams have been coming after him in the trade market.
Bledsoe has been the source of numerous rumors, all of which the Clippers have shot down, but despite Los Angeles slapping away the unwanted advances from the rest of the league, trade interest in Bledsoe remains high. Phil Collins of the Los Angeles Daily News says Bledsoe's name is high on the list of a few teams serious about making a trade. Yet, it still seems as if the Clippers will not part ways with him.
In the three games that Paul missed recently, Bledsoe helped guide the Clippers to a 3-0 record. He also averaged 11.7 points and 3.7 assists per game. Given time as a full-time starter, most think Bledsoe will breakout.
Bledsoe has averaged 8.7 points and 2.7 assists per game so far this season. He is playing in his third NBA season, all with the Clippers. In his career, Bledsoe has never averaged starter's minutes. He has averaged just 19.0 minutes per game resulting in 6.4 points and 2.9 assists per game.
