The New Orleans Pelicans have put shooting guard Eric Bledsoe on the trade block. This is the second time this season that he will be traded if a team comes up with a deal.

Through the first 15 games this season Bledsoe has averaged 13.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 0.9 steals on 39.7% from three-point range and 47.3% from two-point range.

Bledsoe is still putting up productive numbers. He could be valuable to a team.

Here are four potential trade destinations.

Knicks

This would not really be the ideal move for Bledsoe, but the fact is the New York Knicks could put together a good package if they wanted to.

If this did happen the Pelicans would most likely consider it especially if it had a few draft picks in there as that would do them good in the future.

New York do have a few young players on their roster so this could be a move to help develop them further.

Hawks

The Hawks are an interesting team. They have star point guard Trae Young, power forward John Collins and centre Clint Capela.


If the Hawks added Bledsoe, they would have a guard to pair up with Young and some of the scoring pressure would be taken off him.

With Bledsoe and Young doing the scoring and Collins and Capela getting the rebounds, the Hawks could take a big step forward.

Clippers

Last season everything was going well for the Clippers, until the playoffs began.

It was then that their star players, small forward Kawhi Leoard and shooting guard Paul George, underperformed especially shooting wise.

Adding Eric Bledsoe would give the Clippers another shooting option and because he is shooting 41% from three so far this season, he would not be a threat who could be ignored.

Mavericks

Dallas currently has the worst three-point shooting in the NBA at 32.9%.

With both star players for the Mavericks, forward Kristaps Porzingis and guard Luka Doncic, shooting below 30% from three they could do with a consistent shooter.

Eric Bledsoe shooting 41% from three could provide a constant threat from the perimeter which could then open up more space for Doncic and Porzingis.
