There have been Eric Bledsoe trade rumors popping up for months now after it became painfully clear that the Clippers were not going to be able to keep him and Chris Paul. Bledsoe became an asset that had to be moved, and it’s been on L.A. to get the best possible return on him.
Tonight, the Clips pulled the trigger on a three-team deal that actually netted them pieces that will instantly improve their team.
Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news earlier tonight with this tweet:
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
At first look, this is a great deal for L.A. right? They add an offensive weapon in Redick and a do-everything guy in Dudley. Big win all the way around for them.
What do you think of the trade?
