Phoenix has been trying to move Bledsoe for the last couple weeks after his relationship with the front office deteriorated. On Oct. 22, Bledsoe Tweeted simply “I don’t want to be here.” He hasn’t been with the team since.
The Bucks dealt a first-round pick and center Greg Monroe for the former Wildcat. Bledsoe will join a young core that is anchored by MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Bledsoe is likely to immediately become the Bucks’ starting point guard. In four seasons with Phoenix, Bledsoe averaged 18.8 points and six assists per game.
