BREAKING NEWS: Deal in place to send Eric Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks
It seems like the saga between Eric Bledsoe and the Phoenix Suns could finally be over. NBA sources tell Zach Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski that the Suns are in the process of finalizing a deal that would send Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks.
In exchange for Bledsoe, the Suns would receive center Greg Monroe and a first-round draft pick. Those league sources also tell ESPN that a second-round draft pick could be added to the deal as well.
Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough sent Bledsoe home on October 23rd after he sent a tweet following the Suns third loss in as many games to start the season. That tweet basically said, "I don't wanna be here."
There was the previous talk of a deal with Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago, but the Bucks did not want to part with their young star Malcolm Brogdon.
In those three games this season, Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 PPG, 3.0 APG, and 2.3 RPG. Monroe is averaging 6.8 PPG and 5.0 RPG through five games this season.
