Bledsoe to the rescue
The Bucks are hoping their new acquisition, point guard Eric Bledsoe, will help them moving forward. They sent veteran big man Greg Monroe and 2018 first and second round draft picks to the Phoenix Suns for Bledsoe.
Bledsoe averaged 21 points a game for the Suns last season. He could join the Bucks today and play in San Antonio on Friday night.
