9. Eric Bledsoe - 19.1

The Eric Bledsoe trade will always be an important landmark in Milwaukee Bucks history, as it came at a time when the team was beginning to flirt with title-contending status.

During his three years with the Bucks, Bledsoe played some of the best ball of his career, averaging a solid 16.3 points, 5.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Like the aforementioned Moncrief, Bledsoe was a hound defensively, earning two All-Defensive selections with the Milwaukee Bucks and helping the team boast one of the league's best defenses.

The addition of Bledsoe helped form a Big 3 alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, giving those two the best point guard either had played with to date. That certainly helped them as they developed and took their games to the next level.

Unfortunately, the Bledsoe era was synonymous with playoff shortcomings. The guard was known to regress in the postseason, and it hurt Milwaukee again and again. Eventually, after their third and final playoff run together ended in an early exit, the Bucks decided it was time for an upgrade, starting a domino effect of moves that led the team to a title.

Fans may not have the fondest memories of how Bledsoe's tenure, but given that he comes in at ninth place on the franchise's all-time PER rankings, he clearly did some good.
