Looks like Bledsoe has been traded.

Phoenix should have tried harder to trade him this past summer.  Bucks going for a top 4 seed and picking a good year to do it.

Awful for Suns. That pick won't be that great and Monroe is not going to play much there. I really don't blame Bledsoe that much here. He requested a trade in private in the offseason but they did nothing. He spoke up and now he has his wish. Suns can act like he's the bad guy but they were screwing him over just as much.

Good for Bledsoe.  Bucks really needed a PG.  East remains relatively wide open.  Bledsoe represents a rare movement of talent from West to East. 


Don't feed the trolls.

Agreed.  Monroe was gonna be cut loose by the Bucks at season's end anyway, from all appearances.  So they gave up a late first rounder for Bledsoe, great move.  Bledsoe reportedly asked for a trade much earlier this year and the Suns declined.

Remember when Greg Monroe chose the Bucks over the Lakers in free agency?

Definitely dodged a bullet there. Dude is a dinosaur. Can't imagine guys like him, Okafor, Kanter, etc. getting faster / quicker / better defensively. Either develop a 3 point shot or you're a career bench player. If you're a 5 in the NBA in 2017 you have to be able to defend or shoot. Lopez did it and that's why he's still a starting center.
