Default Richard Jefferson traded for Oberto, Bowen and Thomas.

Source: Spurs acquire Jefferson for 3 players - ESPN

Quote:
The Milwaukee Bucks agreed to trade Richard Jefferson to the San Antonio Spurs for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto a Bucks source told ESPN.com.

The two teams have agreed to the deal in principle. A trade call to make the deal official is coming later Tuesday.

The move gives the Spurs a dynamic wing scorer to play alongside Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. The Spurs had promised to make their team better this summer and adding Jefferson for role players should give them a huge shot in the arm.

The Bucks incentive to make the trade is largely financial. Bowen, Oberto and Thomas are all in the last year of their contracts. The deal will clear $15 million off the books for the Bucks next season and give Milwaukee more flexibility for next year. It also saves them roughly $3 million this year. That may give the Bucks the wiggle room to sign one of their restricted free agents -- either Charlie Villanueva or Ramon Sessions -- next year.

The move also opens up some playing time for the Bucks lottery pick last year, Joe Alexander.

Bowen has a partially guaranteed contract for next season, so the Bucks could release him, further saving about $4 million next season and giving them a better chance of retaining Sessions and Villanueva. In that case, Bowen might return to San Antonio later this summer.

gives the spurs more scoring but i think their defense will be more suspect without having bowen and a still learning oberto.

Great trade for the Spurs. Gives them a solid threat on the wing,and it adds new blood to that offense

Spurs definitely back in the hunt now. Very nice pickup especially if Bowen ends up back in S.A.

What? Bowen hasn't been a good defender in 3 years. The guy is over the hill. This is a great move and now puts them back in the top 3 of the West easy.

Great, and I though Bucks game were unwatchable already...Now I dont have to worry about checking the schedule, unless I want to see Michael Redd play Horse by himself.
