He was acquired via trade with the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday but did not play in Milwaukee’s loss to Cleveland that night. Bledsoe was inserted as a starter and finished with 29 minutes on the floor. He did make his presence known in his first opportunity, knocking down a mid-range jumper with under three minutes to go to seal the game for Milwaukee.
