Eric Bledsoe’s Leaving LA’s Glitz And Glam For Tons Of Phoenix Sand

After turning down a plethora of superior deals, the Los Angeles Clippers finally settled on a package for backup point guard Eric Bledsoe. According to Yahoo Sports' Nate Silver Adrian Wojnarowski, the Clippers have agreed to a deal that would send Bledsoe to the Phoenix Suns as part of a three-team deal. In return the Clippers will receive J.J. Redick as part of a sign-and-trade from Milwaukee and Jared Dudley from Phoenix.  The Clippers will also ship out Caron Butler to the Suns and the Bucks will receive one second rounder from each team.

From the outside looking in, this appears to be the worst deal proposed yet for Bledsoe in the past six months,(the Clippers weren't interested in including him in any deal for Kevin Garnett and/or Pierce) but it does provide the Clippers with complementary shooters to space the floor and speaks to the Suns' low opinion of 2012 first rounder, Kendall Marshall.
