Teams have already started calling the Suns about a possible trade for Bledsoe, who McDonough admitted had requested to be traded before the season started.
Although most thought Bledsoe's tweet led to Watson's firing, the Suns are now looking to trade the point guard.
Among the many people who saw and read the tweet was Suns general manager Ryan McDonough. Jay Triano will likely serve as the team's interim head coach, according to Wojnarowski.
"He said he was at a hair salon".
He spent three seasons representing Lob City before getting traded to the Suns ahead of the 2013-14 season. The Suns face off with the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.More news: Indonesian embassy gathering info on citizens involved in Penang landslide
"I don't believe that to be true". He publicly undercut McDonough last March, when he declared the decision to shut down Bledsoe a "management decision".
The landscape at the Phoenix Suns could soon be changing drastically, especially after they started the season 0-3 with their most recent loss coming on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. "This is a turning of the page", McDonough said, explaining further why Bledsoe was sent home. After two seasons where turnovers plagued the 6-foot-5 point guard, Mudiay has given the ball away just twice across the Nuggets' two matchups.
Triano, from Tillsonburg, Ont., had been serving as an associate coach with Watson.
Phoenix Suns rookie Josh Jackson told reporters that he wasn't mimicking a gun with his hand gesture toward an LA Clippers fan on Saturday and that he doesn't regret his actions. And the Suns, clearly on a mission to tank the season, have no incentive to hold Bledsoe for too high of a ransom. "I think there's a chance he has".
Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points and three assists in the first three games this year.
