Former Kentucky standout to sign with Shanghai Sharks after successful NBA career
Former Kentucky standout Eric Bledsoe is signing with the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association after an 11-year NBA career.
It seems Bledsoe is simply in it for the love of the game at the age of 32. He had a successful run in the NBA, earning a first-team All-Defense selection in 2019 and a spot on the All-Rookie team in 2010.

The tenured point guard was selected by the Oklahoma City Thunder with the No. 18 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He spent time with the Thunder, Phoenix, Milwaukee and Los Angeles (Clippers) across his career.
His numbers have considerably faltered as of late after a few years of averaging over 20 points per game with the Suns in the mid-2010s.
