Suns finalizing deal for Bledsoe after 'I don't wanna be here' tweet

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

Eric Bledsoe finally is getting his wish.

The Suns are finalising a trade to send Bledsoe to the Bucks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Guard Eric Bledsoe could soon find himself out of Phoenix and sporting a Bucks uniform.

Only time will tell when it comes to whether this deal will payoff for Bledsoe and the Bucks, but at least for the mean time, the Sixers are still one of the hottest teams in the National Basketball Association at the moment by entering Tuesday's game on a four-game winning streak. General manager Ryan McDonough took the tweet to heart and sent him home on October 23 despite Bledsoe later explaining that the tweet was referencing him wanting to leave a hair salon. They are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. The 27-year-old is averaging 14.0 points and 8.7 rebounds in 543 career contests with Detroit and Milwaukee since being selected by the Pistons with the seventh overall pick of the 2010 draft. Adding Bledsoe's ability to run an offense and shoot from the perimeter could be big for this team moving forward. I really like the idea of Bledsoe, Middleton and The Greek Freak on the court at the same time. It was the second consecutive season that Phoenix's winning percentage was less than.300.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling 'dives well', claims Arsene Wenger
The 25-year-old has made nearly 200 appearances for the Turkish giants, scoring 27 and providing 44 assists over that time. He added: " Arsene Wenger's game plan was to stop Manchester City playing and for periods, it worked".

Monroe, also 27, averaged 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds a game in 15.8 minutes per game. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players.

Immediately following the trade news, the Bucks' odds of winning the Eastern Conference went from 12-1 to 10-1, at the Westgate in Las Vegas, and from 50-1 to 40-1 to win the National Basketball Association championship. The result was selling low on a talented player.

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.
