Three-team trade takes two possible Pistons targets off the market

JJ Redick and Jared Dudley to Clippers, Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler to Suns, picks go to Bucks.

The Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks have reached an agreement on a deal that will send JJ Redick and Jared Dudley to the Clippers, Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe to the Suns and two second-round draft picks to the Bucks.

Adrian Wojnarowski, of course, has the details.

The Pistons inquired about the availability of Bledsoe but were never made a firm offer for the young point guard. Redick, meanwhile, has never been officially associated with the Pistons but he was a player that made a lot of sense for them to add in the wake of their interest in light-shooting forwards Josh Smith and Andre Iguodala.

At least that's what I keep telling myself.

The Bucks get basically nothing for what turned out to be a rental of Redick, who cost them Tobias Harris at the trade deadline last season. But they weren't interested in retaining his services and something is better than basically nothing, right?

Redick gets a new deal as part of the Clippers, reportedly for four years and $27 million dollars. That is a surprisingly cheap deal and I'm hoping (in vain probably) that this helps set the market for free agent wings.
