Phoenix Suns Trade Eric Bledsoe To Milwaukee Bucks For Greg Monroe, Draft Picks
November 7, 2017 by NBA News
The Eric Bledsoe-Phoenix Suns saga is over. The point guard, who has not played in a game for the Suns since Oct. 21, is on the move to the Eastern Conference.
In a trade first reported by ESPN.com’s Zach Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski, the Milwaukee Bucks and Suns struck a deal that sends Bledsoe to Milwaukee. The trade, which was also reported by USA Today, sends Bucks center Greg Monroe and protected first-and second-round picks to Phoenix for Bledsoe.
The Bucks are playing the Cavaliers in Cleveland tonight, but according to ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin, Bledsoe is not expected to play tonight against the Cavs. He will reportedly join the team in San Antonio tomorrow as Milwaukee faces the Spurs on Friday night (9 ET, ESPN).
Monroe was at Bucks practice on Tuesday, reports Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but did not comment on the trade.
It has been nearly two weeks since the Phoenix Suns sent home guard Eric Bledsoe after he stated his desires to leave Phoenix on Twitter.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported days ago that Eric Bledsoe would return to Suns team facilities and work out with staff members this week.
The Bucks, Nuggets and Knicks all reportedly had interest in Bledsoe. The Pistons also reportedly had interest, but coach Stan Van Gundy refuted those reports on Friday.
Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 66 games last season. The 27-year-old point guard played with the LA Clippers for three seasons before joining Phoenix in 2013.
As for the Suns, this trade gives them more assets as they continue rebuilding their young team.
