Los Angeles Clippers backup point guard Eric Bledsoe is reportedly on the radar of a decent amount of NBA teams. The best team in Los Angeles will be shopping their backup point guard in the offseason, according to reports. Having played his best season so far of his young career, Bledsoe will without of doubt bring back a decent haul in return.
Bledsoe posted career high numbers in a number of categories this season. He was eight among point guards in PER this season (Player efficiency rating), he has also posted a career best field goal percentage this season (44.5%). He has also had the best percentage in assists, usage, steals and blocks this year. The percentage of turnovers was also at a career low this year at just 1.8 per game.
Maybe the most significant stat of them all was in the win-loss column after the Clippers lost Chris Paul this season for 12 games due to injury. They went 6-6 in that short period of time, with Bledsoe starting instead of Paul at the point guard position. When Bledsoe was replaces by Grant Hill during games to rest, the efficiency of the team dropped significantly which has only added to the value of the promising young star.
Bledsoe, who is only 23 years old, appears to be ready to finally get a starting job at one of the 30 NBA teams next season.
