Win In 6 Podcast #158: The emergency Eric Bledsoe trade episode

Phoenix Suns forward TJ Warren blocks Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat, of Poland during the second half of an NBA basketball game Wednesday Nov. 1 2017 in Washington. The Suns won 122-116 Win In 6 Podcast #158: The emergency Eric Bledsoe trade episode

There would be lottery protections on the first-round pick, league sources said. After a trade request earlier this season, the Phoenix Suns appear on the verge of completing a trade.

From the moment he sent his now-infamous "I Dont wanna be here" tweet, Bledsoe was an obvious fit for the Bucks. Bledsoe's long arms - his wingspan measured 6-foot-7? at the National Basketball Association draft combine in 2010, more than 7 inches greater than his height without shoes - and strength should make him an ideal defender for Jason Kidd's system, which utilizes length and recovery speed to trap and prevent offenses from finding open shooters on the weak side (as ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz detailed earlier this year).

The deal was announced Tuesday, hours before the Bucks played in Cleveland.

Bledsoe posted career bests of 21.1 points, 6.3 assists and 4.8 rebounds past year and is one of only nine National Basketball Association players that have averaged at least 20 points and six assists since the beginning of the 2015-16 season. The 27-year-old is averaging 14.0 points and 8.7 rebounds in 543 career contests with Detroit and Milwaukee since being selected by the Pistons with the seventh overall pick of the 2010 draft. Milwaukee ranks just 21st in total points per game at 103.9 points, and are hoping Bledsoe can add some offensive firepower to the team. They are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. No doubt in my mind that the Bucks are a better team after this deal.

Bledsoe's acquisition could mean the end of rotation minutes for Rashad Vaughn, whose fourth-year option was not picked up by the Bucks, and a diminished role for Dellavedova. He had been averaging 15.7 points per game, second behind Devin Booker, and was the team's on-court leader. This team has been winning without Bledsoe this season and it could continue to happen, however my focus is continuing to develop younger talent, and keeping them healthy. The result was selling low on a talented player. Tuesday's trade was exciting news in Milwaukee; now, the timetable accelerates, and the pressure and expectations turn up even more.
