Bledsoe is in the final year of a five-year, $70 million contract he signed with the Suns in 2014.

Literally, hours removed from signing a four-year, $70 million contract extension, Bledsoe played the hero last night as the Milwaukee Bucks overcame the fledgling Los Angeles Lakers to clinch a berth, this early in the NBA Season.

Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.4 steals, and 32.8 FanDuel points per game this season.

Bledsoe had intimated he wanted to remain with the Bucks long-term, and by extending him now, the Bucks can focus on other pending free agents of theirs, such as Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Malcolm Brogdon.

He has pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of kidnapping, rape and other charges related to those accusations. Winslow, a 2007 Pro Bowler with Cleveland, last played in the National Football League in 2013 with the Jets.

In addition to Phoenix and Milwaukee, Bledsoe also spent the first three seasons of his National Basketball Association career with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Bledsoe, 29, is having his best season in the National Basketball Association for the Eastern Conference-leading Bucks, averaging 15.7 points, 5.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound point guard has earned more than $76 million in his National Basketball Association career.
