MILWAUKEE-Eric Bledsoe will get a fresh start in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed in principle to trade forward/center Greg Monroe along with a first and second-round picks to the Phoenix Suns for point guard Eric Bledsoe, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Suns will take on the final year Greg Monroe's $17.9 million contract, while picking up a future first-round pick.

But those tests typically require a human driver to be present and take over in case there is an emergency. Those who participated in Waymo's early rider program will be among the first to experience these rides.

McDonough reiterated last month that the Suns had no timetable for a potential trade involving Bledsoe.

Bledsoe averaged 15.7 points and 3.0 assists in only three games this season before the Suns sent him home following his infamous tweet.

Bledsoe is a very intriguing pickup for the Bucks, who were expected to be a playoff contender this season but have scuffled out of the gate at 4-5. Bledsoe had asked to be traded before the season, Suns general manager Ryan McDonough has said.

Disney held talks to acquire most of 21st Century Fox
Disney would acquire Fox's movie studio, cable networks like FX, and global holdings including its 39 percent stake in Sky. The additional movie content from 20th Century Fox would make the service a big competitor to something like Netflix .

In his three-year tenure with tenure with the Milwaukee Bucks, Monroe has averaged 13.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 165 games. Milwaukee ranks just 21st in total points per game at 103.9 points, and are hoping Bledsoe can add some offensive firepower to the team. And, of course, the Bucks now have one fewer first-round pick (and one fewer second-round pick as well) to use either for a cost-controlled salary as the team's payroll rises or to help offload bad salaries. Brogdon should return to his sixth man role, but a crunch time lineup of Brogdon, Bledsoe, Snell, Middleton and Giannis would be very hard to guard, defensively wild and a transition nightmare for opponents.

Phoenix only hurt themselves by not dealing with the Bledsoe situation then and letting it spill over into the regular season, where it became a public situation. Unhappy with the team and its direction, Bledsoe desperately needed a change of scenery, and, entering his prime - he turns 28 on December 9 - as Antetokounmpo and Middleton approach theirs, he could be a great fit on the court with Milwaukee.
