  • Suns deal Bledsoe to Bucks for Monroe, 2 picks

According to a report from ESPN's Zach Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski, the Suns are finalizing a deal that would send Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks for Greg Monroe, a first-round pick and a second-round pick.

The Bucks will battle the Cavs in Cleveland on Wednesday (AEDT), but Bledsoe is not expected to play just yet, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Wojnarowski previously reported the Bucks wanted to add Bledsoe but were not willing to give up young, talented players like Malcolm Brogdon, Thon Maker or Jabari Parker, who should return from injury later this season.

Bledsoe won't average those numbers with the Bucks. Considered a potential top-five seed back east, Milwaukee has struggled out to a 4-5 start to the season.

Bledsoe posted career bests of 21.1 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds a year ago and is one of only nine National Basketball Association players that have averaged at least 20 points and six assists since the beginning of the 2015-16 season. After tweeting, "I Dont wanna be here", the team held him out of games for disciplinary reasons, along with team practices, as general manager Ryan McDonough worked to find a suitable trade for the disgruntled guard. They are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. The first-rounder is lottery protected. The point guard has been traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for draft picks and the expiring contract of veteran big man Greg Monroe.

John Wall still recovering from sprained left shoulder, out vs. Raptors
Eastern Conference, 9-24-1 ATS in their last 34 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Wizards and Cavs are both facing tougher-than-anticipated questions less than three weeks into the season.


The 27-year-old Bledsoe had not been with the Suns since October 22 when he posted "I Don't wanna be here" on Twitter, the same day the Suns fired coach Earl Watson.

After weeks of speculation, it appears Eric Bledsoe is on the move.

Monroe averaged 15.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for Detroit and Milwaukee from 2011-12 through 2015-16.

Phoenix only hurt themselves by not dealing with the Bledsoe situation then and letting it spill over into the regular season, where it became a public situation.
