The Phoenix Suns reach a deal to hand point guard Eric Bledsoe a new five-year, $70m contract, according to a number of reports in the press.

The Phoenix Suns have reportedly reached a deal to give restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe a new five-year contract.

The 24-year-old is thought to have held out earlier in the summer, having being offered a four-year term from Phoenix, but reports now suggest that the point guard has now landed a $70m (£54m) contract.

According to the NBA's official website, there will be no early termination clause in Bledsoe's deal.

Bledsoe averaged 17.7 points and 5.5 assists last season for Phoenix, with the player previously turning out for the Los Angeles Clippers.
