In his first public comments after getting traded to Milwaukee, Eric Bledsoe defended his own character.

Bledsoe referenced his infamous “I don’t wanna be here” tweet, which fast-tracked his exit from Phoenix, and appeared to address Suns GM Ryan McDonough’s decision to banish him from the team and call the the 27-year-old a liar.

“I’ve never been a liar,” Bledsoe said. “I haven’t lied to anybody when it comes to serious things.”

The Bucks gave up Greg Monroe and two draft picks to acquire Bledsoe.
