Bledsoe, 27, averaged 21.3 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 66 games last season before the being shut down for the remainder of the season.

Eric Bledsoe will get a fresh start in Milwaukee.

Bledsoe has been away from the Suns for disciplinary reasons but Milwaukee had no issue with bringing him on board. In 2016-17, Monroe averaged 11.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 22.5 minutes per game.

It appears the Phoenix Suns have granted Eric Bledsoe his wish to be traded.

Brogdon reacts to Bledsoe trade, talks second year (read here): Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders talked with Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon about the Bledsoe deal, what it means for the team going forward and the growth he's experiencing on the court in his second NBA season. Bledsoe spent the past five seasons in Phoenix after his first three years with the Clippers. Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe, a first-round pick and a second-round pick in return, according to Wojnarowski and Lowe.

Monroe averaged 15.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for Detroit and Milwaukee from 2011-12 through 2015-16. Monroe was attractive in large part because he is an expiring contract. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well.

Phoenix also has the need to create an open roster spot if they hope to make Mike James their starting point guard for the rest of the season, as he is now on a two-way contract and can only spend 45 days with his commanding National Basketball Association team before going back to the G League.
