RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

After signing a new deal last summer, Bledsoe enters 2015-16 as the face of a franchise that has seen considerable turnover in just a year's span. He began last season in a crowded, but talented, backcourt that also included Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas, a three-point-guard experiment that ultimately floundered as Phoenix failed to take the next step in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. By season's end, Dragic and Thomas had been moved, as the Suns opted to go in a new direction, bringing in Brandon Knight from Milwaukee to be Bledsoe's running mate of the future. While injuries limited Knight to only 11 games in a Suns uniform, Bledsoe enjoyed a strong season, starting a career-best 81 games and averaging 17.0 points, 6.1 assists, and 5.2 rebounds in 35 minutes per game. Bledsoe shot 45 percent from the floor, a hair above his career average, but he took a slight step back from beyond the arc, converting only 32 percent of his three-point attempts. The Suns are one of the league's biggest mysteries heading into the season, especially given what's transpired with standout forward Markieff Morris, the team's second-leading scorer last season. If Morris' wish to be moved is granted, Bledsoe will be asked to take on an even greater offensive burden. He'll team with Knight to form one of the West's best young backcourts, and the pair figure to split playmaking and ball-handling duties. Knight is the better catch-and-shoot player, however, so Bledsoe figures to spend more time on the ball.

2014-15

Bledsoe is entering his fifth year in the NBA and his second with the Suns. Despite missing 39 games to injury last season, Bledsoe put together some solid numbers when healthy. He averaged a career-best 17.7 points, 5.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.6 steals in 33 minutes per game. Bledsoe shot an impressive 48 percent from the field on 12.9 attempts, 36 percent from beyond the arc on 3.3 attempts, and 77 percent from the free-throw line on 5.5 attempts per game. While he has not officially signed his free agent tender yet, the Suns are set to match any offer his receives, with the likely scenario being Bledsoe returns to Phoenix on a one-year deal. However, the possibility of a trade still looms, with the Suns' offseason acquisition of Isaiah Thomas lending credence to the belief that they're prepared to move on without offering Bledsoe a max or near-max deal. In any case, assuming he returns to Phoenix, Bledsoe will likely retain his starting guard spot, as well as the potential for some major production. He carries the potential to combine efficient scoring with elite-level steals numbers and sneaky rebound and assist totals. Injuries are a concern, but if healthy, Bledsoe is a candidate to have a big 2014-15 season.

2013-14

Bledsoe has shown glimpses of big-time potential in his first three NBA seasons, but as a backup to Chris Paul on a very deep Clipper team, his opportunities to play were (rightfully) limited. That changes this season. Bledsoe was dealt to the Suns as part of the three-way deal that sent Caron Butler to Milwaukee and Jared Dudley to LA. On what promises to be a pretty bad Phoenix team, Bledsoe will get all the playing time he can handle. Is he up to the challenge? His per-36 numbers say yes – his averages last season would translate to 14.9 points, 5.1 assists and 5.0 boards on a per-36 basis. That's probably optimistic, but cut those totals by 15 or 20 percent and you'd still have a pretty good player. An important trend to watch: Bledsoe shot just under 30 percent from long range in his first two NBA seasons, but hit at a 40 percent clip last year. Improvement? Or a statistical aberration based on small sample size (just 31 makes on the year). Bledsoe is a point guard by trade, but it appears he'll start in the Suns backcourt alongside Goran Dragic as the nominal shooting guard.

2012-13

The real question for Bledsoe in the upcoming season will be, “How much playing time is he going to get?” Bledsoe played only 11.6 minutes per game last season and though he didn’t put up superb numbers, coach Vinny Del Negro never really allowed him to get into a rhythm in the regular season. The postseason, however, was Bledsoe’s coming out party. Del Negro played him 17.2 minutes per game and the second-year guard averaged 16.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per 36 minutes. If Bledsoe continues to improve – and he’s only 22 – he could end up seeing plenty of more playing time in the upcoming season, especially considering he is probably the best perimeter defender on the roster.

2011-12

This off-season wasn’t kind to the young Bledsoe. First, he had surgery on a torn meniscus in his knee, and will miss the beginning of the season. And now he has not just one, but two veteran guards in front of him on the depth chart. Unless injury strikes, or either Chauncey Billups or Mo Williams gets traded, then there is no reason to draft Bledsoe in 2011-12.

2010-11

Bledsoe was drafted for his talent and potential as a future point guard in the NBA, but he isn’t likely to contribute much for the Clippers this season. He’s a great shooter, but he turns the ball over too often and is an unproven facilitator.
