[Eric] Bledsoe, a point guard for the Suns, wants a five-year, full-max deal worth $84 million, a contract significantly higher than the four-year, $48 million deal the Suns have presented. The Suns counter that their offer is fair.

The Suns are using the system — the rules of the collective bargaining agreement — to their advantage. The two sides still don’t have a deal with training camp less than two months away, and the rift only has grown.

The relationship between the two sides has soured, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

The person also said Bledsoe, 24, strongly is considering signing the Suns’ qualifying offer for $3.726 million — good for the 2014-15 season — to become an unrestricted free agent after next summer.
