During 2016-17, Milwaukee outscored opponents by 3.7 points per 100 possessions with Monroe on the court, per NBA.com/Stats, and was minus-2.2 per 100 with him on the bench - worst for any player on the roster, even star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The Bucks play Cleveland Tuesday night and Bledsoe is not expected play.

Bledsoe is reportedly planning to join the team in San Antonio on Wednesday. The Bucks also have a $5 million trade exception that will expire in February. The Bucks are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax.

Aside from their pick, the Suns also have the Miami Heat's pick, which is top-seven protected, and the lottery protected selection from the Bucks.

Phoenix will receive centre Greg Monroe, a 2018 protected first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick in the deal. As he turns 28 years old later this year, Bledsoe can say he's been on one winning team with the Suns, the 2013-14 edition that went 48-34, finished 10th in the Western COnference, and missed the playoffs. A tweet that Bledsoe tried to say was in regards to being at a hair salon, but apparently the league didn't buy that excuse.

The Eric Bledsoe saga has officially come to a close in Phoenix. Bringing Bledsoe back, and subsequently sending him home after his apparent subtweet, did nothing to improve his trade value. Bledsoe was told by management, according to sources, that the team had underperformed ever since he was given starting point guard responsibilities. He averaged career highs in points (21.1), assists (6.3) and rebounds (4.8) last season.

Phoenix only hurt themselves by not dealing with the Bledsoe situation then and letting it spill over into the regular season, where it became a public situation.

Monroe, 27, has played only five games this season and hasn't played since October 26 because of a left calf strain. In those losses, the team has been brutalized by opposing centers-Steven Adams, Andre Drummond, and Dwight Howard combined to average 18.3 points and 12.3 rebounds on 66.7 percent shooting from the field.
