Phoenix will receive Greg Monroe along with a future first-round pick and a 2018 second-round pick from Milwaukee in exchange for the disgruntled guard.

Milwaukee Bucks: Grades and reactions for the Eric Bledsoe trade (read here): Adam McGee weighed in on the Bucks' big move to acquire Bledsoe and how the team made out in the deal, both coming and going.

Bledsoe hasn't played in a game for Phoenix since October 21, as the team reportedly has been expediting a trade for him.

The Bucks pulled the trigger Tuesday and acquired a high-scoring guard from Phoenix without giving up rookie of the year Malcolm Brogdon.

The Suns are finalising a trade to send Bledsoe to the Bucks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

Bledsoe, 27, is in his eighth season in the National Basketball Association and holds career averages of 13.1 points, 4.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game over 421 games (259 starts) with the Suns and the L.A. Clippers.

The woman, 48, and the man, 28, who were not named, reportedly were strangers seated together. The spokesperson also confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued citations.

Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season.

Monroe averaged 15.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game for Detroit and Milwaukee from 2011-12 through 2015-16.

But he also served as an indicator of just how rapidly the league has changed, too, when he picked up his $17.8 million option for this season rather than take his chances in the open market.

The 6-11 Monroe has an expiring contract, which means even more room for a Suns team with loads off cap space.
