Suns Trading Eric Bledsoe To Bucks For Greg Monroe, First-Rounder

Milwaukee sent center Greg Monroe, and a protected first- and second-round draft pick to the Suns for Eric Bledsoe, who averaged 21 points per game past year with the Suns. Pairing Bledsoe with Giannis could be the shot in the arm they need.

The deal was reportedly struck late Monday night, as teams spent early Tuesday morning finalizing medical data for the players involved in the deal, Wojnarowski reported.

We provided our immediate reaction to the news, discussing what Bledsoe should bring to the Bucks, and the all-important price the Bucks paid to acquire him. After losing four of their first five games to start the season, Philadelphia fans have every reason in the world to be thrilled over the direction this team is moving, even if Bledsoe isn't part of the picture. The plan is for Bledsoe to meet the Bucks in San Antonio on Wednesday.

With the move, Milwaukee creates a $3.38 million trade exception that will be available to use for one year. The best hope is an unprotected 2021 first still owing from Miami. General manager Ryan McDonough took the tweet to heart and sent him home on October 23 despite Bledsoe later explaining that the tweet was referencing him wanting to leave a hair salon.
