Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe sent out a tweet Sunday afternoon that seems to be the latest development of an unhappy player on a rebuilding team.

Bledsoe had made clear that he enjoys being in Phoenix, but also let his frustrations be known when he was benched at the end of last season for younger developing players.

The Suns have gone 0-3 to start the season, including two losses by more than 40 points, leading to the firing of coach Earl Watson on Sunday. Bledsoe's tweet came about an hour before Watson's firing was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Over the offseason, Bledsoe’s name appeared in trade rumors on several occasions, including for Kyrie Irving before he was sent to Boston, but no deal was made including the Suns' guard.

Bledsoe has averaged 15 points and three assists this season in three games.
