The Los Angeles Clippers continued their busy offseason Tuesday, executing a blockbuster three-team deal with the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks that sent guard Eric Bledsoe out of town and brought in Bucks guard J.J. Redick and Suns forward Jared Dudley.
Phoenix will receive Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler in the deal, and the Clippers and Suns will each send a second-round pick to the Bucks, who dealt Redick to the Clippers in a sign-and-trade. Redick will receive a new four-year, $27 million contract, which includes a trade kicker.
The trade cannot be finalized until July 10.
The trade is the third major move for the Clippers in the last week. The team received Doc Rivers as its new coach in a trade with the Celtics on June 25 before agreeing to terms with star point guard Chris Paul on a five-year extension on Monday, which likely paved the way for Bledsoe, Paul’s backup last season, to be traded.
