  • Eric Bledsoe: Arrested Wednesday

  • Eric Bledsoe: Headed to Shanghai

    Bledsoe agreed to a contract with the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association on Wednesday, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.com reports.

    Bledsoe made 54 appearances with the Clippers last season before he was acquired by the Trail Blazers via trade, but he never took the floor for Portland due to a season-ending Achilles injury. After failing to catch on with a new team as a free agent heading into 2022-23, Bledsoe will head overseas to compete in the Chinese Basketball Association this season.

  • Eric Bledsoe: On way out of Portland

    The Trail Blazers intend to waive Bledsoe (Achilles) before his $19.38 million contract for the 2022-23 season becomes fully guaranteed Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After averaging 9.9 points per game -- his lowest mark since 2012-13 -- last season while shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from downtown, the 32-year-old Bledsoe doesn't look like a starting-caliber player at this stage of his career, so it's no surprise that Portland isn't keen on keeping him on the roster at an exorbitant salary. He'll be moving on from the Trail Blazers without ever having played for the team, as he was ruled out with an Achilles injury upon being acquired in early February and missed the remainder of the season following a 54-game stint with the Clippers earlier in the campaign. The severity of his injury is dubious, given that the Trail Blazers were well out of playoff contention at the time he was acquired and were eager to give some of their younger guards more extended run. Bledsoe should be back to full strength for the start of the 2022-23 season -- if he isn't already -- and he's expected to have an active market while multiple contending clubs look to round out their rotation with experienced guards.

  • Trail Blazers' Eric Bledsoe: Won't return this season

    The Trail Blazers announced Monday that Bledsoe (Achilles) will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

    Bledsoe hasn't appeared in any games for Portland after coming over from the Clippers in early February. Though the Trail Blazers initially expressed optimism that Bledsoe would have a role for the team, he ultimately didn't make enough progress in his recovery from the injury. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection last week to address the Achilles issue, effectively ending his season. The veteran guard averaged 9.9 points, 4.2 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals across 25.2 minutes per contest in 54 games with the Clippers this season.
