Suns Trade Jared Dudley

PHOENIX - Yahoo! Sports is reporting (and Jared Dudley is confirming) that the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks have agreed on a three-team trade that sends Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to L.A.
The Suns get Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler, while the Bucks, who facilitated the trade, get two second-round draft picks.
The Suns add a talented young point guard and a forward early in free agency after drafting center Alex Len and guard, Archie Goodwin last week.
Phoenix won’t be able to negotiate a contract extension with Eric Bledsoe until after the deal gets finalized on July 10, as per league rules.
Jared Dudley announced the trade on his twitter account: “First off have to thank the Suns org.. ESP Alvin. Kerr, Sarver, and Lon.. I loved my time in phx.. Great city and fans! I wish them the best”
Minutes after that tweet came another from Dudley: “I can't lie, I'm excited to play close to home!!! If I had to go to any team It would be the clippers!! Time to get work!!!”

Gortat and Bledsoe will be packaged in a deal. That i think. Suns want to trade Gortat for something bigger, but to net a trade with Gortat we will have to include someone with a great upside, i believe that piece is Bledsoe.

Re: Suns Trade Jared Dudley
This is a great trade for the Suns. Butler has an expiring contract I believe, and Bledsoe (if kept) has a player option (I believe) and most assuredly will opt out if he thinks he can get a better deal and/or chance to win elsewhere. Either way, Suns got out from under Dudley's contract, which seems to be playing into the theme for the 2014 Season. Personally, I'd love to see the Suns hold onto Bledsoe, he's a nice building block for the future, I just don't know if he'll remain committed long term with that player option. The fact that half the teams in the league have been trying to get this guy does feed into the trade possibility as mentioned above. But I don't see the Suns moving Bledsoe till around the trade deadline if at all!

If the Suns have got any intention to hold onto Dragic, I just hope all these moves doesn't *** with his confidence

Re: Suns Trade Jared Dudley
Rumors I seen indicate that the Suns wanna play Dragić at the PG and Bledsoe at the SG, we'll have to wait and see how that turns out, haha
