Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe along with a future first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick from Milwaukee in exchange for the disgruntled guard.

Ever since Bledsoe posted that interesting tweet about not wanting to be in Phoenix, it was tough not to consider the possibility of the guard potentially ending up in Philadelphia, especially when looking at all of the insane trades made by the team over the last few years. In 2016-17, Monroe averaged 11.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 22.5 minutes per game.

The Phoenix Suns have reportedly agreed to trade Eric Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks. The NBA fined the eight-year NBA veteran $10,000 for the tweet.

Just days after he was reportedly set to begin using the team facilities again in order to stay in shape, the Suns sent Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee had lost four of its last five games before visiting the Cavaliers, but adding Bledsoe's scoring ability alongside Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton on a team that also includes rising guard Malcolm Brogdon could help.

Coming off a career season where he averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.8 rebounds, many felt Bledsoe had given up on the Suns. He is entering his eighth National Basketball Association season and owns career averages of 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists.

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. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well.

Phoenix, rebuilding with an extremely young roster featuring Booker and T.J. Warren, has not made the playoffs in six years.
