In late 2017, the Suns' front office made a decision to shut down veterans Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and Brandon Knight, as Phoenix tanked to the No. 4 overall pick in this summer's draft where they selected Josh Jackson.
With regards to their roster, it sounds like the Suns, who fired coach Earl Watson on Sunday after hours of meetings, would like to stay young. The tweet by Bledsoe, a former Clipper, was followed by one from the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan saying "Come back home bro". He said he was at a hair salon with his girl and that he didn't wanna be there anymore. He publicly undercut McDonough last March, when he declared the decision to shut down Bledsoe a "management decision". "He won't be with us going forward".

Triano joined the Suns' staff as associate head coach in the summer of 2016 after being an assistant with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Watson was hired as the interim coach after the Suns after they fired Jeff Hornacek in 2016.
This was the first National Basketball Association season where every coach who started one year had the same job to begin the next. The Suns went 33-85 on his watch.

McDonough said Bledsoe had asked to be traded before the season. With an extremely young team, the Suns struggled under Watson.
