The star guard is joining the Milwaukee Bucks as part of a three-team deal that also involves the Phoenix Suns, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In the trade, the Trail Blazers reportedly will get Jrue Holiday, Deandre Ayton, Toumani Camara, an unprotected 2029 Bucks first-round pick and unprotected first-round swap rights with Bucks in 2028 and 2030. The Suns will reportedly receive Jusuf Nurkic, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little and Keon Johnson.
