News: Minnesota is willing to offer Bledsoe a four-year, $63 million maximum level contract but will need to complete a sign-and-trade deal in order to facilitate a deal, ESPN reports.
Impact: The Suns and Bledsoe haven't been able to come to terms on a new contract with Bledsoe likely to sign a one-year, $3.7 million qualifying offer so he can become a free agent next year. It's an odd move for Minnesota who already has Ricky Rubio at point guard and could signal the team isn't set on signing Rubio to the max deal he wants this summer. The complications of a sign-and-trade deal involving the two teams make this deal seem unlikely since the Suns seem unlikely to want Rubio back in a deal.

News: Bogdanovic played efficiently in Wednesday's FIBA game as he finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 0-0 FT, 2-5 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Impact: Bogdanovic has impressed during his run in the international tournament, including Suns general manager Ryan McDonough. "He was very efficient and got his spots and got the shots he wants to shoot," said McDonough following Serbia's victory over a Greece squad that entered the game undefeated. "I'm impressed with his playmaking. He's got long arms. He's strong and he has a feel for the game." Including the 21 points Bogdanovic put up in Wednesday's contest, he's currently averaging 11.4 points (49% FG, 70% FT, 39% 3Pt), 2.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 0.9 steals in 27 minutes per game. He will look to add onto those totals against France on Friday.

News: Dragic had another tough outing on Tuesday against Team USA, finishing with 13 points (6-15 FG, 0-0 FT, 1-5 3Pt), four assists, four rebounds, and four turnovers through 29 minutes, bringing his international play to an end this offseason, azcentral reports.
Impact: "The Dragon" had a solid run during international play, with final averages of 16 points (0.554 FG, 0.600 FT, 0.355 3Pt), 4.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.6 turnovers through 26 minutes. Considering his team lacked another NBA level caliber player, these numbers are actually very uplifting to those looking to draft the 28-year-old point guard. His numbers don't dominate the scoresheet, and his free throw averages leave something to be desired. But, Dragic displayed many moments of brilliance during his FIBA run. Given the upgrade in surrounding talent on his Suns team, look for Dragic to take a lot back from this experience and have a productive fantasy season.
