According to Yahoo Sports, the Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns have agreed on a three team trade which will send the much desired Eric Bledsoe to a division rival.

The trade, per Wojo:

Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler will go to the Suns, Jared Dudley and JJ Redick to the Clippers and 2 2nd-round picks to Bucks, sources tell Y

In the sign and trade scenario, Redick will get a four year, $27 million deal with the Clippers, sources tell Y! Sports.

Suns GM Ryan McDonough has started the Suns rebuilding with a young point guard — Eric Bledsoe — and a center — Alex Len.

Bledsoe will be entering the final year of his contract and will become a restricted free agent at the end of the coming season. Butler will become an $8 million dollar expiring deal for the Suns, who may attempt to trade him to a team looking for salary relief.

As for the Clippers, Dudley will fill the much needed small forward position which may end their pursuit of Matt Barnes who has been drawing interest from both the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks. Redick, who will agree to the sign and trade should fill the bench scoring guard role left behind by Eric Bledsoe.
