Report: Suns trade Bledsoe to Milwaukee Bucks

It appears that Eric Bledsoe has gotten his wish. 

After posting a now-infamous tweet in which he implied he no longer wanted to be in Phoenix, Bledsoe is on the move according to reports out of ESPN. The Suns are sending the guard to the Milwaukee Bucks for Greg Monroe and picks in the first and second rounds of the NBA draft. 

Bledsoe leaves Pheonix after four seasons -- the last being his most productive when he averaged 21.1 points and 6.3 assists per game. 

Monroe is a power forward/center who was drafted No. 7 overall in 2010. He spent the first five years of his career with the Detroit Pistons before heading to the Bucks. He averaged 13.5 points per game in a Milwaukee uniform. 

Late in October, Bledsoe was fined $10,000 for the aforementioned tweet.

Durant: Greek Freak favorite to watch, has 'best player to ever play' potential

In his latest way of connecting with fans on YouTube, Kevin Durant answered questions through a video for nearly 20 minutes on Friday. 

One fan asked the Warriors' star forward who his favorite player is to watch in the NBA. Durant mentioned Steph Curry, but had to go with someone other than his two-time MVP teammate. 

"Greek Freak, probably the No. 1 guy I like to watch," Durant said. He also brought up both CJ McCollum of the Blazers and Pelicans big man Anthony Davis before continuing on about Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. 

"Greek Freak I think is a force. I've never seen anything like him," Durant said. "His ceiling is probably -- he could end up being the best player to ever play if he really wanted to. That's pretty scary to think about.

"He's by far my favorite player to watch."

Antetokounmpo, 22, broke out for a career year last season as he averaged 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.6 steals per game. He became the fifth player in NBA history to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals in one season.

Bucks sign former Warriors wing

Brandon Rush found a new basketball home on Monday.

The 32-year old signed with the Bucks, his agency announced on Twitter.

Rush played for the Timberwolves last season.

He averaged 4.2 points over 47 appearances (33 starts) and shot 38.6 percent from 3-point territory.

During the 2011-12 campaign in a Warriors uniform, Rush averaged a career-high 9.8 points per game, while shooting over 45 percent from deep.

After scoring 14 points in the 2012-13 season opener, he tore his ACL in Game No. 2 against the Grizzlies.

In July 2013, the Warriors traded Rush to the Jazz in the deal that brought Andre Iguodala to Golden State.

Rush returned to the Warriors in the summer of 2014 and won a ring.

During the 2015-16 season, he started 25 games and averaged 4.2 rebounds a night, and shot over 41 percent from distance.

The Blazers selected Rush with the 13th overall pick in 2008 but was traded to the Pacers two weeks later.
