Bucks’ Bledsoe gets contract extension
Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe reportedly received a $ 70 million, four-year extension on Friday, the same day Bledsoe score 31 points in Milwaukee’s 131-120 win over the host Lost Angeles Lakers.
“We’ve got a talented young team, we’re growing together,” said Bledsoe. “We compete for something bigger than ourselves. I just wanted to be part of it.”
The Bucks won their eighth in a row — fourth straight against the Lakers — and 10th consecutive game on the road.
Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo played 32 minutes without restriction after sitting out with right knee soreness this past Monday at Chicago and being limited to 24 minutes on Wednesday at Sacramento.
