Eric Bledsoe will finally get his first chance to suit up in a Milwaukee Bucks uniform. As a result, head coach Jason Kidd formally announced on Friday that the newly acquired point guard will get the starting start when Milwaukee travels to take on the San Antonio Spurs.

The 27-year-old Bledsoe was acquired from the Phoenix Suns earlier in the week in exchange for veteran center Greg Monroe and a protected first and second-round draft pick. There had been a storm brewing in Phoenix with Bledsoe, who issued a cryptic tweet only a handful of games into the season. After speculation that Bledsoe wanted out of the Suns organization, he met with the team a day later and was promptly sent home. Bledsoe generated 15.7 points and three assists over the course of 27.7 minutes through the first three games of the season with Phoenix.
