It appears that Eric Bledsoe has gotten his wish.

The Bucks play Cleveland Tuesday night and Bledsoe is not expected play. And Monroe, despite limited use this season, has per-36 minute averages of 15.5 points and 11.4 rebounds.

"Eric is a dynamic player who brings scoring and toughness to the court while enhancing our young and talented core", Bucks general manager Jon Horst said.

Bledsoe would join a Bucks backcourt with 2016 Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, Matthew Dellavedova and Jason Terry.

As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare for Tuesday's game against the Utah Jazz, the hottest topic of discussion surrounding the National Basketball Association at the moment is the recent trade involving the Phoenix Suns that sent Eric Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks. Bledsoe spent the past five seasons in Phoenix after his first three years with the Clippers. Monroe has been out with an injury for the last week.

Monroe has been restricted to just five games this season and hasn't played since October 26 because of a left calf strain.

Without him, Milwaukee will likely consolidate the center position and look ahead to early next year when the front line should get a boost with the return of injured forward Jabari Parker. He is entering his eighth National Basketball Association season and owns career averages of 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists. They also could have as many as three first-round picks next season.

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.
