Report: Bucks have expressed interest in Suns’ Eric Bledsoe
The Milwaukee Bucks are one of the many teams expressing interest in acquiring Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe in light of his trade request becoming public over the weekend, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.
Bledsoe was sent home from practice today after a conversation with general manager Ryan McDonough and believes he has played his last game with the team after a four-point, four assist, four-turnover outing against the L.A. Clippers.
The highly-dynamic point guard has endured two 40-plus-point losses at the hands of the Portland Trail Blazers in the season-opener and the Clippers on Saturday, which ended in the firing of head coach Earl Watson.
The Suns have rising prospects in Tyler Ulis and Mike James, while the Bucks have Matthew Dellavedova as a backup point guard and Malcolm Brogdon starting at the point, currently listed out of Monday’s game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Phoenix will want a juicy return for Bledsoe, due to his fame for being a stat-stuffer throughout the latter part of his career. Milwaukee has several young pieces to offer a Suns team that has committed to rebuild through youth — once again in play for one of the worst records in the league.
