The Phoenix Suns are reportedly meeting with agent Rich Paul, and this time it has nothing to do with LeBron James.

According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the Suns are in the early stages of contract talks with Paul regarding his other highly sought-after client, Eric Bledsoe.

Bledsoe, a restricted free agent, recorded career-highs in points (17.7), assists (5.5), rebounds (4.7) and steals (1.6) per game, despite being limited to just 43 games due to a torn meniscus in his right knee.

The fourth-year guard out of Kentucky, who was acquired in May 2013 following a three-team trade between the Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix, made $2.6 million in 2013-14.

Spears' report comes just hours after ESPN insider Marc Stein suggested that the Bucks, led by new coach Jason Kidd, planned to make Bledsoe a substantial offer.

Should Bledsoe warrant a max contract from Phoenix or any other potential suitor, based on the league's cap projections for the 2014-15 season, he would make somewhere just south of $15 million per year -- given his 0-6 years of his experience.
