Hours later, the Suns announced the firing of Watson. Assistant coach Jay Triano, a former head coach of the Toronto Raptors, was named interim coach.
The tweet by Bledsoe, a former Los Angeles Clipper, was followed by one from the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, saying: “Come back home bro.”
The Suns dropped to 0-3 on Saturday night with a 130-88 loss at Clippers, their second blowout loss of the season. On Wednesday night at home, they lost 124-76 to the Portland Trail Blazers, the most one-sided season-opening loss in NBA history and the most one-sided loss in team history.
Long the subject of trade rumors, the 27-year-old Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points and 3.0 assists this season — his fifth with the Suns.
