Bucks acquire Eric Bledsoe for Greg Monroe and a first round pick

08 November 2017

On Monday morning the National Basketball Association fined Eric Bledsoe $10,000 for his now-famous tweet.

Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe along with a future first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick from Milwaukee in exchange for the disgruntled guard.

The pick is the bigger part of the deal heading into the 2018 NBA Draft, as the Suns could potentially have three first-rounders next year: their own first, the Heat's No. 1-7 protected first and the Bucks' first acquired in this trade, which will have lottery protections, per Wojnarowski and Lowe.

However, Turnbull declined, saying he preferred to pursue an existing refugee deal negotiated earlier with former U.S. Ms Ardern said New Zealand's offer had not been rejected outright.

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 play with the Bucks (4-5) on Tuesday night in Cleveland, multiple sources told ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

The Bucks need another playmaker and Bledsoe averaged more than 20 points and six assists each of the last two seasons in Phoenix. In those losses, the team has been brutalized by opposing centers-Steven Adams, Andre Drummond, and Dwight Howard combined to average 18.3 points and 12.3 rebounds on 66.7 percent shooting from the field. They are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. Milwaukee ranks just 21st in total points per game at 103.9 points, and are hoping Bledsoe can add some offensive firepower to the team. 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. It was the second consecutive season that Phoenix's winning percentage was less than.300.

Monroe, 27, has only played five games this season and hasn't played since October 26 because of a left calf strain. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players. He's not going to come out and terrorize every team you face but he has what it takes to help this team become a legit contender in the Eastern Conference.

Next summer or next year, they may regret it, but the Bucks got better today - on defense, on offense, in transition, in the backcourt, late in games - and both Antetokounmpo and head coach Jason Kidd gained a new, useful, versatile tool.
