Are Greek Freak and Bledsoe the Future for the Bucks?

The Milwaukee Bucks traded Greg Monroe and two draft picks for 27 year-old Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe averaged 21 points 6 assists and 5 rebounds last season.

If the Suns played for the Eastern Conference last year, they would have tied for the 3rd seed, which shows how dangerous the West really is.
