Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Eric Bledsoe is being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for Greg Monroe and a couple picks.

Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe is finally on his way out of town. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Bledsoe is headed to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Suns receive Gren Monroe, and a couple of draft picks in return.

Bledsoe is getting out of Phoenix after a tumultuous start to the season. The former Clipper and the Suns agreed to mutually part ways after a bizarre sequence of events. After starting the season with three straight losses, Bledsoe tweeted this.

Bledsoe said he was referring to a hair salon he was at when asked by the Suns organization what he meant by this. Suns GM Ryan McDonough wasn’t buying it. He announced that Bledsoe would be sent home and they were going to be actively trying to trade him.

The New York Knicks were one of the teams being floated around in the Bledsoe rumors. After seeing how much the Bucks are giving up, not reaching a deal is a positive for New York. Despite a hot start, the Knicks shouldn’t be in the business of trading any draft picks.

The Bucks get a lot better with this move, but they are in a better position to contend in the East. They package Monroe’s expiring contract, and they can stand to lose some picks considering they haven’t traded away any of their first-round picks up until this trade.

So Knicks fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Frank Ntilikina isn’t going anywhere. Enes Kanter isn’t going anywhere. Willy Hernangomez isn’t going anywhere, yet.
