According to Charania, Milwaukee is sending a whopping three first-round picks to New Orleans to go with two future draft pick swaps in exchange for Holiday.
Bledsoe, who is set to make $17 million next season and $18.1 million in 2021-22, averaged 14.9 points and 5.4 assists per contest during the 2019-20 regular season before being limited to 11.7 PPG on 38.8% shooting during the playoffs.
The former Wildcat will now join a Pelicans team headlined by former Duke stars Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram.
