Bucks end slide in Bledsoe's debut

Share

The Suns exchanged a disgruntled player for a tradeable asset in Greg Monroe (in the final year of his contract) and a couple of picks, and Bledsoe gets to play for a team that's a legitimate Eastern Conference contender.

A lot has been made of the Bucks incredible length, but even head coach Jason Kidd noted that the addition of Bledsoe gives Milwaukee a speed player they haven't had in some time.

The Bucks are back in Milwaukee tonight to face the Los Angeles Lakers at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

"I'm looking to make guys better, make it easy on some of the guys like Giannis, Khris, Brogdon", said Bledsoe.

The former Kentucky product certainly looks happier in a Bucks uniform and has made a 2-0 start.

Bledsoe has started both games since being traded, with Rookie of the Year award victor Malcolm Brogdon moving back to the sixth man role.

Going forward, the key for Bledsoe is to prevent Milwaukee from being a two-man team of him and Antetokounmpo since he has a capable third scorer in Middleton and a good spot-up perimeter shooter in Tony Snell.

"It's really easy to go play with him because you know he's going to find you".

While players busting out a eurostep is as ubiquitous in the National Basketball Association today as ripped jerseys, Giannis Antetokounmpo's length, and otherworldly athleticism just make his version impossible to replicate. "We want to play with an edge".

The Milwaukee Bucks used a swarming defense to help end a four-game losing streak.

They return to action on Tuesday night when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.
