Eric Bledsoe News
The Clippers acquired guard Eric Bledsoe from Memphis on Sunday in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Rajon Rondo, and Daniel Oturu. Bledsoe was recently traded to the Grizzlies by the New Orleans Pelicans, where he averaged 12.2 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.4 rebounds throughout 71 games last season. With the move, the 31-year-old will head back to Los Angeles, which he played for during his first three years in the league. Nonetheless, the former Kentucky Wildcat has the potential to see an increase in production during the 2021-22 campaign, primarily since Kawhi Leonard (knee) may miss more time than anticipated moving ahead. Fantasy managers should keep Bledsoe on the radar, as long as anyone who picks him up can handle his shoddy shooting percentages.
The Pelicans plan to trade guard Eric Bledsoe and center Steven Adams to Memphis in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas. In addition, the Grizzlies will receive the 10th overall selection in Thursday's NBA Draft, while New Orleans will acquire the 17th overall pick. The deal will not become official until August 6. However, the move creates cap space for the birds, who will have the financial flexibility to go after a big-name free agent or potentially match any offer for restricted free agent Lonzo Ball. Although Bledsoe's best days were in Phoenix, he still has upside on the offensive end. However, the 31-year-old veteran could have a bench role if he remains in Memphis, so his fantasy stock will undoubtedly take a hit.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Bledsoe could be on the move ahead of the 2021 NBA Draft. Bledsoe's name has been brought up during recent trade discussions with the Grizzlies, who could offer a deal to bring the veteran to Memphis. Moving the 31-year-old would undoubtedly give the Pelicans some financial freedom while allowing the Grizzlies to add much-needed depth. The 12-year veteran averaged 12.2 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.4 boards during the 2020-21 campaign. While it would appear that Bledsoe's best days are behind him, he could see an increase in production if given more chances on the offensive end.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Bledsoe may be on the move. With the team owning the No. 10 overall selection in the 2021 NBA Draft, the pick could be paired with Bledsoe to create cap space. The veteran averaged 12.2 points and 3.8 assists throughout 71 games last season and has a few years remaining on his current deal. Depending on where the 31-year-old lands will determine his fantasy outlook, although it appears as if he is trending in the wrong direction.
