  • NBA Rumors: Suns Trading Eric Bledsoe To Bucks For Greg Monroe, First-Rounder

MILWAUKEE-Eric Bledsoe will get a fresh start in Milwaukee. Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe, a first-round pick and a second-round pick in return, according to Wojnarowski and Lowe. It appears the Phoenix Suns have granted Eric Bledsoe his wish to be traded.

Only time will tell when it comes to whether this deal will payoff for Bledsoe and the Bucks, but at least for the mean time, the Sixers are still one of the hottest teams in the National Basketball Association at the moment by entering Tuesday's game on a four-game winning streak.


After the team reached an agreement on deal's terms late Monday night, Bledsoe and Monroe, both 27, were spending Tuesday morning finalizing medical evaluations before the trade is formalized, according to ESPN. In those losses, the team has been brutalized by opposing centers-Steven Adams, Andre Drummond, and Dwight Howard combined to average 18.3 points and 12.3 rebounds on 66.7 percent shooting from the field.

At the other end, with MVP front-runner Giannis Antetokounmpo and reigning rookie of the year Malcolm Brogdon also able to direct the offence, Bledsoe will need to find a comfort zone, and he's another below-average shooter, but, given the low price and Bledsoe's ability to man either guard spot, like Brogdon, it was a no-brainer roster upgrade. 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. Milwaukee ranks just 21st in total points per game at 103.9 points, and are hoping Bledsoe can add some offensive firepower to the team. I really like the idea of Bledsoe, Middleton and The Greek Freak on the court at the same time. This team has been winning without Bledsoe this season and it could continue to happen, however my focus is continuing to develop younger talent, and keeping them healthy. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players. Tuesday's trade was exciting news in Milwaukee; now, the timetable accelerates, and the pressure and expectations turn up even more.
