3. Eric Bledsoe
Despite only being acquired in December, Eric Bledsoe was one of the players who was linked to trade rumors on draft night. That’s quite the turn of events for the Bucks’ starting point guard.

When Milwaukee traded for him, he was supposed to be a huge addition and someone to help take the Bucks to the next level. And although he’s extremely talented, he didn’t seem to be a natural fit for this Bucks team. He’s a career 33.7 percent three-point shooter and has a very slow and long release. This ensures he doesn’t provide very much floor spacing capabilities to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
His lack of consistent effort and concentration on defense are also extremely troublesome. He was never more exposed than against Terry Rozier and the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. Rozier constantly took advantage of Bledsoe on defense and left him embarrassed on more than one occasion.
Overall, he’s an expiring contract, as he only has one year and $15 million left on his contract. Given that, he might be one of the easier player for the Bucks to move on this list. But whether they can actually get something of value for him in return is the bigger question.
