Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler to Suns, Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to Los Angeles Clippers, and two second-rounders to Milwaukee Bucks
Eric Bledsoe would be a viable starting point guard option for any team, and even at 33 years old, Caron Butler still has a little juice left. While J.J. Redick can still contribute as a floor-spacing long-range threat, Jared Dudley is almost spare parts at this stage in his career. As for Milwaukee’s two second-rounders, while some second-rounders make it to the NBA, the vast majority of second-round picks do not, and it’s not like the Milwaukee Bucks are the second coming of the San Antonio Spurs. The clear winners in this trade are the Suns.

The interesting thing will be what happens next year, when Paul George’s rookie contract will expire (George will probably ask for a max contract) and when Danny Granger’s $14 million per year deal expires. The Pacers will probably let Granger leave as a free agent (or sign-and-trade him) and keep Paul George.
