Bledsoe averaged 15.7 points and 3.0 assists in only three games this season before the Suns sent him home following his infamous tweet.

The weird Eric Bledsoe/Phoenix Suns stalemate was resolved on Tuesday morning when ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe reported that the point guard would be heading to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for centre Greg Monroe and a protected first-round pick.

Bledsoe has not been with the team since tweeting "I Dont wanna be here" on October 22, just an hour before Phoenix fired head coach Earl Watson.

While the Sixers obviously won't take time on the court away from players like Ben Simmons or J.J.

Phoenix has unloaded high-caliber point guards Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas in less than three years and don't have much to show for the deals.

Only time will tell when it comes to whether this deal will payoff for Bledsoe and the Bucks, but at least for the mean time, the Sixers are still one of the hottest teams in the National Basketball Association at the moment by entering Tuesday's game on a four-game winning streak.

Just days after he was reportedly set to begin using the team facilities again in order to stay in shape, the Suns sent Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are now $4.4 million below the luxury tax. In my book, this trade was a win.

The 27-year-old Monroe, who joined the team as a free agent in 2015 after five years in Detroit, has been sidelined recently because of a left calf strain. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well. In return, Phoenix is getting Greg Monroe and a 2018 first-rounder. "Bledsoe does have a long 6'7" wingspan which does fit what Milwaukee typically looks for in their players.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski detailed why the Suns were shopping Bledsoe.

Bledsoe previously had met with Suns owner Robert Sarver and McDonough during the preseason and requested a trade, sources told ESPN. The market was unlikely to move dramatically between now and the trade deadline unless a huge injury created a need for a point guard.
