Bucks steal Eric Bledsoe from Suns

But the team was likely most interested in getting the $15 million owed to Bledsoe in 2018-19 off of the books. The Phoenix Suns get a chance to speed up their rebuilding project. Bledsoe claimed that he was at a hair salon with his wife, and that the tweet was about that, but he had also reportedly requested a trade earlier in the preseason that was not granted. On the trade block for almost a year, Monroe averaged 13.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 165 games since signing with the Bucks in 2015.

Bledsoe has appeared in just three games for the Suns this season after the team sent him home due to a tweet he posted in October that said, "I don't wanna be here". Bledsoe has since been fined $10,000 by the National Basketball Association for his social media message, but ESPN's Brian Windhorst put a positive spin on the cost of the tweet.

So long as the malcontentedness of Eric Bledsoe is behind him, this could be a boon to the Bucks' ascension to contender status. Monroe was on an expiring contract, and the Bucks take on Bledsoe's salary for another two seasons.

Apple Wins $119.6M in Slide-to-Unlock Patent Battle Over Samsung
On the current iOS, people either use Touch ID, Face ID or double tap the Home button to bring up the password screen. Apple claimed that Samsung infringed on its patent by copying the feature in their Galaxy S lineup of smartphones.

"Eric is a dynamic player who brings scoring and toughness to the court while enhancing our young and talented core", Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement.

Bledsoe gives the Bucks a boost at the point guard position coming off a 2016-17 season in which he averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. It was the second consecutive season that Phoenix's winning percentage was less than.300.

The 27-year-old Monroe, who joined the team as a free agent in 2015 after five years in Detroit, has been sidelined recently because of a left calf strain. Although he's not a great shooter, he's become a better 3-point threat, shooting 33.5 percent on a career-high 4.7 long-range attempts previous year. The first-round pick would be lottery protected as well. The Suns will receive Milwaukee's second-round pick in 2018 if in the range of 48-60 overall.
