PHOENIX (AP) Phoenix point guard Eric Bledsoe was sent home Monday, a day after the Suns fired coach Earl Watson and replaced him on an interim basis with Jay Triano.

About the time that word of Watson's firing was leaking out, Bledsoe sent a tweet Sunday that read "Don't wanna be here."

General manager Ryan McDonough said Bledsoe told him that he was at a hair salon and that's what the tweet was about, that it had nothing to do with the Suns. "I don't believe that to be true," McDonough said.
