The Milwaukee Bucks have offered two of their best big men in second-year forward/center thon maker and fellow hybrid Greg Monroe in return for Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe, according to Tim Montemayor of 1580 The Fanatic radio.
The Bucks are one of four teams that have expressed serious interest in the 27-year-old, along with the New York Knicks, the Denver Nuggets, and the L.A. Clippers.
Suns general manager Ryan McDonough met with Bledsoe this morning and sent him home from practice, believing he has played his last game with the organization after Saturday’s four-point, four-rebound, four-turnover outing in a 42-point loss to the Clippers.
Milwaukee has been long-willing to ship Monroe elsewhere after head coach Jason Kidd simply can’t find a role for him to play on a team which has required outside shooting for several seasons.
The Bucks currently have Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon as the starting point guard, but that could very well change if the team can successfully trade for Bledsoe, as one of the few stat-stuffers at the position.
Bledsoe would be yet another all-around talent paired with Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the Bucks would get even thinner in the front court if they ship out two of their forward/centers in this deal.
