Description: The Oklahoma City Thunder and guard Reggie Jackson are unlikely to reach an agreement to a contract extension before the October 31 deadline, according to NewsOK.com.
Insight: The Thunder would like to lock up Jackson long term before the season starts, but that is unlikely according to the NewsOK.com report. The 24-year-old is due to be a restricted free agent after this season. At that time, Oklahoma City can match any offer another team issues to Jackson. The guard is somewhat limited in terms of fantasy if Russell Westbrook is healthy.
Description: According to Jude LaCava of FOX Phoenix, the Suns are attempting to trade restricted free agent eric Bledsoe.
Insight: Bledsoe wants a five-year max contract, but the biggest contract the Suns have offered him is four years and $48 million. Injures limited Bledsoe to 43 games last season, but in those games, he averaged 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.6 steals.
If John Wall can get a max deal it\'s not crazy to think Bledsoe (17.7 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.7 rpg) will get one also. As a restricted free agent, the Suns can match any offer Bledsoe receives on the open market. There\'s been some speculation that Phoenix could deal Bledsoe or point guard Goran Dragic to Minnesota as part of a trade for Kevin Love.
