Did 76ers drop the ball by not trading for Eric Bledsoe?

NBA Rumors: Suns Trading Eric Bledsoe To Bucks For Greg Monroe, First-Rounder

Guard Eric Bledsoe could soon find himself out of Phoenix and sporting a Bucks uniform.

"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.

Eric Bledsoe said he's "excited" to move forward with his National Basketball Association career after the blockbuster trade Tuesday sending him from the Phoenix Suns to the Milwaukee Bucks. Monroe has been out with an injury for the last week. The NBA fined the eight-year NBA veteran $10,000 for the tweet.

Avalanche sends Duchene to Sens in three-way deal
The Avalanche received the biggest haul, getting back two players apiece from the Senators and Predators as well as three picks. The 26-year-old centre has recorded 10 points (four goals, six assists), in 14 games for the Avalanche this season.

In three games this season, Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points per game.He will now likely join the Bucks starting lineup alongside last year's Rookie of the Year, Malcolm Brogdon, as well as Khris Middleton, Thon Maker and MVP-candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks will battle the Cavs in Cleveland on Wednesday (AEDT), but Bledsoe is not expected to play just yet, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. With the trade, the Suns (4-7) now have three first-round picks in 2018. Over three seasons with the Bucks, he averaged 13.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 165 games.

The Suns have until December 6 to turn James' contract into a full-fledged National Basketball Association deal - making it possible if they involve different pieces along with Monroe. After losing four of their first five games to start the season, Philadelphia fans have every reason in the world to be thrilled over the direction this team is moving, even if Bledsoe isn't part of the picture. The first-rounder is lottery protected. The Suns get Milwaukee's second-round pick next year if in the range of 48-60 overall.
