Report: Bucks may make an offer for Eric Bledsoe
The Milwaukee Bucks have a new head coach in Jason Kidd and a new franchise player in Jabari Parker, who was taken by the Bucks with the second-overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
According to a report made by ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Bucks also want to sign Phoenix Suns guard restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe.
In addition to weighing possible trade for Lin, I’m told Bucks are pitching offer sheet to RFA Eric Bledsoe and pursuing PG Greivis Vasquez

The Suns have the ability to match any offer that the Bucks may make.
Bledsoe had a break out season for the Suns in 2013-14, averaging 17.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game. He is seen as one of the Suns’ bright young stars and is also a good friend of LeBron James whom the Suns are currently perusing.
It’s probably in the Suns’ best interests to try and retain the services of Bledsoe by matching any offer. When he is healthy, he’s one of the best players in the NBA.
