The Timberwolves are looking to make a splash just days from the start of the NBA training camps, offering Eric Bledsoe a four-year, $63 million contract. The only way the deal can get done is if the Phoexnis Suns agree to a sign and trade deal with the Timberwolves.

As mentioned here, Bledsoe and the Suns haven’t agreed to a deal after the team offered him four years and $48 million last July. The Timberwolves have been busy during the offseason, sending Kevin Love to the Cavaliers and in return getting the top pick in the draft; Andrew Wiggins.

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points per game and 5.5 assists per game in just 43 games last season after being traded from the Clippers due to a meniscus injury to his right knee.

Whether Bledsoe would be open to go to Minnesota is another question, but if the team really is prepared to offer him a maximum contract then it’s easy to see him being swayed.

Bledsoe thrived with the Suns, a team that has a legitimate shot at making he playoffs this season and he would make the Timberwolves a dangerous team, as they already have Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin and Andrew Wiggins.
