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

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.
