The Milwaukee Bucks have traded point guards Eric Bledsoe and George Hill to the New Orleans Pelicans, along with draft compensation, for combo guard Jrue Holiday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Milwaukee will also send three future first-round picks to the Pelicans along with two pick swaps.

Holiday, age 30, has spent 11 seasons in the league, seven of them with the Pelicans. He averaged just over 19 points per game in 2019-'20 to go along with 6.7 assists per game and 4.8 rebounds per game. He's in the last year of a five-year, $131.8 million deal.

Bledsoe spent three seasons in Milwaukee. He averaged 14.6 points per game, 4.6 rebounds per game and 5.4 assists per game during the 2019-'20 season. Bledsoe struggled in the playoffs after the season restarted, shooting just 38.8 percent from the field and 25 percent from beyond the three-point arc.

Hill spent two seasons with the Bucks, emerging as a key rotational piece after former backup point guard Malcolm Brogdon was traded to the Pacers. Milwaukee signed Hill to a three-year, $29 million contract after the conclusion of the 2018-'19 season.
