The Milwaukee Bucks have longed for a point guard all offseason but they’ve yet to nab one of high value. Might that be Eric Bledsoe? Not according to the Phoenix Suns who continue to suggest they will keep the former Kentucky Wildcat talent at all costs.
But if that sentiment is to change, the Milwaukee Bucks are said to be ‘very interested’ in a sign-and-trade scenario for Eric Bledsoe this according to Steve Kyler.
Of course, the Milwaukee Bucks wouldn’t be the only team attempting to pawn off talent to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Bledsoe if they actually began taking offers. So while they might be ‘very interested’ they probably would lack the type of talent needed to acquire the point guard if he was made available.
The most likely candidate to be shipped out would be Larry Sanders, though, it’s been said Jason Kidd is a big fan of the oft-troubled forward and would prefer to keep him with the organization. Kidd reportedly attempted to trade for Sanders last season when he was coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
So while the Bucks have shown interest and continue to do so in regards to Eric Bledsoe, it seems rather unlikely that they’d be a candidate for a sign-and-trade scenario. That idea becomes even less likely considering the Phoenix Suns don’t seem interested to trade away their young guard.
As it stands, Kyler notes only the Philadelphia 76ers could beat out the Suns current offer of $12 million per season and they have no desire to do so.
