Eric Bledsoe

Eric Bledsoe has been on the move a lot in the last year. The Portland Trail Blazers are his fourth team in three seasons and he is very likely going to have a fifth team in the coming weeks.

Bledsoe has yet to step on the floor with Portland. Upon being traded, he sat out with an Achilles injury. There is a strong chance that he never gets on the floor for the Trail Blazers, as they have made their intentions clear that they are looking to clear cap space and play the young guys down the stretch.

Portland is on a three-game winning streak without Bledsoe, which could speed up the buyout process. They are playing well without him and he doesn’t fit the timeline the team is seemingly working on.

If he does reach the buyout market, he will also be a popular name among contending teams. The team that will ultimately land him is the Milwaukee Bucks. Bledsoe played with the Bucks for parts of three seasons before he was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans.
