Phoenix Suns Agree To Trade Eric Bledsoe: Report

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

But the team was likely most interested in getting the $15 million owed to Bledsoe in 2018-19 off of the books.

There are several reports that say the Milwaukee Bucks are in the process of finalizing a deal that would send Greg Monroe and a future #1 draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for disgruntled guard Eric Bledsoe. Phoenix will receive center Greg Monroe and a first-round pick in the deal.

Phoenix has unloaded high-caliber point guards Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas in less than three years and don't have much to show for the deals.

He was sent home by the Suns after the tweet, reducing the team's leverage because everyone in the league knew Phoenix was trying to trade him.

Bledsoe is not expected to suit up for the Bucks on Tuesday night against Cleveland, as the plan is for him to meet with the team on Wednesday in San Antonito, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough expressed Bledsoe "won't be with us moving forward" as speculation began to grow where Bled's next destination may be. The Bucks are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. Earlier, the Suns wanted to trade Bledsoe for Bucks guard, reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon [VIDEO]. Brogdon should return to his sixth man role, but a crunch time lineup of Brogdon, Bledsoe, Snell, Middleton and Giannis would be very hard to guard, defensively wild and a transition nightmare for opponents. And, of course, the Bucks now have one fewer first-round pick (and one fewer second-round pick as well) to use either for a cost-controlled salary as the team's payroll rises or to help offload bad salaries.

Bledsoe's acquisition could mean the end of rotation minutes for Rashad Vaughn, whose fourth-year option was not picked up by the Bucks, and a diminished role for Dellavedova. This team has been winning without Bledsoe this season and it could continue to happen, however my focus is continuing to develop younger talent, and keeping them healthy.

Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season. Tuesday's trade was exciting news in Milwaukee; now, the timetable accelerates, and the pressure and expectations turn up even more.
