Over the course of the last few days, we've heard about 100 different trade rumors involving Clippers backup point guard Eric Bledsoe. From the Magic to the Mavericks, he's reportedly been headed just about everywhere this week. But it finally sounds like he really will be on the move thanks to a three-team trade that the Clippers, Suns, and Bucks just completed.
According to Yahoo! Sports writer Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers have agreed to send Bledsoe and Caron Butler to the Suns. In return, the Clippers will receive Jared Dudley from the Suns and J.J. Redick from the Bucks. And for Redick, the Bucks will receive two second-round draft picks. Redick will get a four-year, $27 million deal from Los Angeles as a result of the trade.
Do you like the deal? We kind of get the feeling that Bledsoe will make this trade look awfully lopsided in a couple years. But at the same time, the Clippers weren't going to be able to pay him when his contract was up next summer—and they've got this other guy named Chris Paul on the team—so they had to make a move. And we think it will pay off. Well, it'll pay off for everyone except Milwaukee. SMH. Poor Bucks!
