After weeks of rumors, it seems former Kentucky Wildcats guard Eric Bledsoe could be on his way to Milwaukee.

According to a tweet from ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Phoenix Suns (the team that Bledsoe has played for since 2013) are finalizing a deal to trade Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Bledsoe has been the target of many trade rumors since his infamous “I don’t wanna be here” tweet. The Suns openly shopped him for a while, and now it seems Bledsoe will join the up-and-coming Bucks, a roster filled with young talent led by one of the best young players in the NBA in Giannis Antetokounmpo, who could be an MVP contender this season.

On the surface, this sounds like a good deal for Bledsoe, who will join a team that will be a winning team in the East versus the Suns who will likely finish near the bottom of the West.

The Bucks aren’t quite to the level of being a championship contender, but with their young core led by the Greek Freak, they will almost certainly be a playoff team this year.

More details regarding the trade will be released as they are made available.
