Suns finalising deal to send Eric Bledsoe to Bucks

Bledsoe had originally told McDonough that he was tweeting about being at the hair salon with his girlfriend, but the GM wasn't buying it. He averaged career highs in points (21.1), assists (6.3) and rebounds (4.8) last season.

Bledsoe and the newfound depth of the Bucks' backcourt and wing positions should help Milwaukee play at the current fashionable pace, while creating the necessary amount of space. Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe, a first-round pick and a second-round pick in return, according to Wojnarowski and Lowe.

There are several reports that say the Milwaukee Bucks are in the process of finalizing a deal that would send Greg Monroe and a future #1 draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for disgruntled guard Eric Bledsoe.

For Monroe, the deal is an unfortunate end to his time in Milwaukee. Earlier, the Suns wanted to trade Bledsoe for Bucks guard, reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon [VIDEO].

"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 in a statement.

Bledsoe hasn't played in a game for Phoenix since October 21, as the team reportedly has been expediting a trade for him.

He was sent home by the Suns after the tweet, reducing the team's leverage because everyone in the league knew Phoenix was trying to trade him.

That's it for today's roundup, but we'll be back to do it all again tomorrow.
