Bledsoe is in the final year of a five-year, $70 million contract he signed with the Suns in 2014.
He was traded to the Bucks after playing just three games last season in Phoenix and declaring publicly on Twitter “I Dont wanna be here.”
Bledsoe has averaged 16.8 points and 5.3 assists in the better part of two seasons with the Bucks.
He is averaging 15.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds in 60 games in Milwaukee this season.
The Bucks currently sport the best record in the NBA at 47-14. They lead the Raptors by 2 1/2 games for the top spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
