According to the Phoenix Suns website, Eric Bledsoe has agreed to a 5 year contract with the team. 

“We are thrilled Eric Bledsoe will be in a Phoenix Suns uniform for years to come,” General Manager Ryan McDonough was quoted on suns.com. “Eric is one the most exciting and dynamic two-way players in the league. He played very well for us on both ends of the floor last season and we feel he is well on his way to establishing himself as one of the elite players in the NBA.”

Although the team web site did not specify the salary for the 5-year deal, it has been reported that is worth $ 70 million dollars.

“Lon, Ryan and the Suns have shown confidence in me, and I am looking to take that responsibility and help our team get better from last year and position ourselves to win an NBA championship,” said Bledsoe through a statement released by the Suns. “It’s why I came back to Phoenix. All summer, I knew that I really would be most comfortable coming back to Phoenix because of the great fans, my Suns teammates and our coaches. I am very happy it was able to work out this way.”

Bledsoe is 24 years old; he was drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2010, after his freshmen season at the University of Kentucky, and traded to the Los Angeles Clippers. 

He was acquired by the Suns July of 2013. 

He averaged 17.7 points with the Suns last season, playing in 43 games.
