Eric Bledsoe Trade Rumors: Suns, Bucks Finalizing Deal for PG

Eric Bledsoe Trade Rumors: Suns, Bucks Finalizing Deal for PG

Ever since Bledsoe posted that interesting tweet about not wanting to be in Phoenix, it was tough not to consider the possibility of the guard potentially ending up in Philadelphia, especially when looking at all of the insane trades made by the team over the last few years.

In the three games Eric Bledsoe played this season he averaged 15.7 PPG.

While the Sixers obviously won't take time on the court away from players like Ben Simmons or J.J.

The Bucks are in the spotlight today as they have agreed to a deal with the Suns for Eric Bledsoe.

The teams reached an agreement in principle on deal terms late Monday night, and were spending early Tuesday finalizing medical evaluations on the players included in the deal before formalizing a deal, league sources said.




Bledsoe has been away from the Suns (4-7) since general manager Ryan McDonough sent him home on October 23.

With Bledsoe's arrival, the Bucks will have a high-scoring team when he plays alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton. And, of course, the Bucks now have one fewer first-round pick (and one fewer second-round pick as well) to use either for a cost-controlled salary as the team's payroll rises or to help offload bad salaries. The Bucks are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. It was the second consecutive season that Phoenix's winning percentage was less than.300.

Monroe, who joined the Bucks as a free agent in 2015, has been sidelined recently because of a left calf strain.

According to ESPN, the first-round pick Milwaukee is sending to the Suns is lottery-protected and likely to be near the back end anyway, given the team's playoff expectations, which demonstrates that - despite his undeniable ability - Bledsoe had little value and Phoenix no leverage in trade negotiations, given the circumstances. I'm also a really big fan of the Suns getting a first round pick for their troubles. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players.
