Report: Suns Deal Bledsoe To Bucks

Eric Bledsoe rumors

The long wait is nearly over. It appears the Phoenix Suns have granted Eric Bledsoe his wish to be traded.

The talented point guard has been away from the team since October 23 after he cryptically tweeted, “I don’t want to be here” one day earlier. 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.

Phoenix in return gets backup center Greg Monroe and a first-round pick.
