Suns finalizing deal for Bledsoe after 'I don't wanna be here' tweet

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

Milwaukee Bucks: Grades and reactions for the Eric Bledsoe trade (read here): Adam McGee weighed in on the Bucks' big move to acquire Bledsoe and how the team made out in the deal, both coming and going.

The Bucks, 4-5, will take on the Cavs in Cleveland tonight before heading to San Antonio for a matchup with the Spurs on Friday night. In three games with the Suns this season, Bledsoe averaged 15.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 3.0 assists. Earlier, the Suns wanted to trade Bledsoe for Bucks guard, reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon [VIDEO].

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.

It appears the Phoenix Suns have granted Eric Bledsoe his wish to be traded.

Milwaukee's first-round pick will convey to the Suns in 2018 if in the range of 11-16 overall, in 2019 if in the range of 4-16, in 2020 if in the range of 8-30 and in 2021 will be unprotected if it has not yet been conveyed. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well. 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 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.
