Suns Agree To Deal Eric Bledsoe To Bucks For Greg Monroe, Draft Picks

Published

The ‘Eric Bledsoe Saga’ is finally coming to an end in Phoenix.

The Suns have agreed to deal Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Greg Monroe, a 2018 protected first-round and a 2018 protected second-round draft pick.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe first reported the deal, which was agreed to on Monday night and finalized on Tuesday.

The Bucks resisted including guard Malcolm Brogdon, the NBA’s reigning Rookie of the Year, in the deal, whom the Suns highly coveted in return.

Milwaukee creates a $3.38 million trade exception that will be available to use for one year after completing the deal.

Bledsoe is expected to join the team in San Antonio for their game against the Spurs on Friday.

Monroe, 27, has played only five games this season and hasn’t played since Oct. 26 because of a left calf strain and it is unclear if he will remain with the Suns as he gives the team an attractive trade piece moving forward.

Milwaukee now has a talent-loaded roster in what should be a promising playoff run this season.

Chicago Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. is dedicated to helping the franchise return a winning culture, and says that he is ready to put the team on his shoulders to accomplish the feat of rebuilding a winning culture.

“I’m always up for a challenge,” Carter Jr said, during an interview with Jon Greenberg of The Athletic. “I’m not afraid to fail. If I’m going to fail, I’m going to do it hard. I’m going to go hard as I can in failing. So I feel like that can be appreciated from all the coaches. I’m a hard worker, so I feel like that’s going to translate to the responsibility side of doing whatever we have to do. Put it on my shoulders and I’m going to make it happen.”

“We’re going to bring back the winning culture to Chicago,” he said. “If it’s not make the playoffs and win the championship in the first year, I guarantee it’s going to be a progressive step each year. I can promise that to all Bulls fans. I’ll take that on my shoulders.”

Carter, 19, will be the Bulls starting center as the team opens the season, as announced by head coach Fred Hoiberg.

Cleveland Cavaliers’ veteran forward Kevin Love is taking the blame for the Cavs’ season opening loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, showcasing his efforts to claim a leadership role with the team moving forward.

“That rhythm wasn’t there tonight,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “You could tell that game action wasn’t there for me tonight. Thought I got a lot of really, really good looks on the offensive end. On the defensive end, just our switches and closing out, just my attention to detail wasn’t there.

“I told Ty after the game, I said that’s on me and I apologize. We all have to be better and I think we know it.”
