Eric Bledsoe finally is getting his wish.

Ever since Bledsoe posted that interesting tweet about not wanting to be in Phoenix, it was tough not to consider the possibility of the guard potentially ending up in Philadelphia, especially when looking at all of the insane trades made by the team over the last few years.

Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season. In three seasons with Milwaukee, Monroe averaged 13.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 165 games (67 starts).

Milwaukee Bucks: An ode to Greg Monroe (read here): Now that he's heading off to Phoenix, Jordan Treske (hey, that's me again!) reflected on Greg Monroe's tenure in Milwaukee and the lasting impact he leaves on the team.
