|Eric Bledsoe: Shipped to Memphis|
Bledsoe was traded to Memphis on Monday, along with Steven Adams, as part of a package that brings Jonas Valanciunas to New Orleans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: New Orleans will also send the No. 10 pick in Thursday's draft and a top-10-protected 2022 first-round pick (via the Lakers) to Memphis, which will hand over the No. 17 pick in 2021. The two teams will also swap second-rounders. For Bledsoe, the Grizzlies will be his third team in as many seasons, though Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports that the Grizzlies intention is to eventually re-route Bledsoe to another team. The former Kentucky standout mostly scuffled through his lone season in New Orleans, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 threes across 71 appearances. He posted his lowest scoring, rebounding and assists averages since the 2012-13 season when he was a member of the Clippers.
