Eric Bledsoe will no longer be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the 29-year-old has agreed to a four-year, $70 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Bledsoe is in the midst of the best season of his NBA career. Through 60 games with the Bucks, he's averaging 15.7 points, 5.5 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals on 49.2 percent shooting from the field and 32.2 percent from 3-point range.

The Bucks have been a significantly better team with him on the court, outscoring opponents by a margin of 11.0 points per 100 possessions with him in the lineup.
