Bledsoe and the newfound depth of the Bucks' backcourt and wing positions should help Milwaukee play at the current fashionable pace, while creating the necessary amount of space.
"Eric is a dynamic player who brings scoring and toughness to the court while enhancing our young and talented core", Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement.
The Suns have been trying to trade Bledsoe for a couple of weeks after he tweeted his displeasure at playing for the struggling Suns. The Suns have already netted Monroe's $17.8 million contract along with a first and second-rounder for estranged point guard Eric Bledsoe, but now look to maximize and leave no money on the table by seeking trade options for the lefty big man.
Bledsoe was fined $10,000 by the National Basketball Association for that tweet, McDonough told AZCentral.com on Sunday.
Bledsoe would join a Bucks backcourt with 2016 Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, Matthew Dellavedova and Jason Terry.
Bledsoe, 27, averaged 21.3 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 66 games last season before the being shut down for the remainder of the season.
Bledsoe hasn't played in a game for Phoenix since October 21, as the team reportedly has been expediting a trade for him.
Meanwhile, Greg Monroe is averaging just 6.8 points and five rebounds in roughly 16 minutes in five games this season. The Suns will receive Milwaukee's second-round pick in 2018 if in the range of 48-60 overall. They also could have as many as three first-round picks next season. We're looking forward to getting started in Milwaukee.
