The Milwaukee Bucks Just Added Eric Bledsoe

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

During the 2016-17 season, Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists and 1.4 steals in 66 games with the Suns.

While the final haul might disappoint Suns fans, this is unfortunately all they were going to get considering the franchise had tanked his value by disgruntling him to be the point that he'd demanded a trade.

Adding Bledsoe's salary moves Milwaukee within $16 million of the projected 2018-19 luxury-tax line ($122 million) with Parker as yet unsigned. After a trade request earlier this season, the Phoenix Suns appear on the verge of completing a trade. More importantly, Monroe's contract expires next summer, while Bledsoe is signed through 2018-19, at $14.5 million this season and $15 million next year. Last season's Rookie of the Year Malcom Brogdon and Mathew Dellavadova will now have a leader and will be able to come off of the bench and provide some solid minutes. In my book, this trade was a win. No doubt in my mind that the Bucks are a better team after this deal. Dealing picks for a starter who will soon turn 28 accelerates the Bucks' timetable to win the next two seasons, before Bledsoe becomes an unrestricted free agent who will be hard for Milwaukee to re-sign given the team's tax limitations. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well.

George HW Bush Openly Criticizes Trump in New Book
A presidential dogfight erupted Saturday between the Trump administration and a pair of former commanders-in-chief. Bush left his ballot blank and said about Trump: "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president".

The Suns could also maximize their return for Bledsoe by shipping Monroe to a third team prior to the deadline.

Phoenix will have to make a decision within the next month on starter Mike James, as they have until December 6 to turn his two-way contract into a full-fledged National Basketball Association contract. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players. However, Bledsoe owners are happy just to have him back in action. To have a leader at the point guard position is exactly what this team needed.
