As Thursday’s 3pm ET trade deadline approaches, a real trade has finally emerged.

UPDATE: Trade became official. Read full details here

According to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to trade Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown.

The trade, assuming it becomes official, gives the Bucks a very interesting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. Both players are talented scorers who are not necessarily the best decision-makers. They are dynamic and fun to watch, but the chemistry development will be interesting to watch. The upside between the two is pretty big.

Bogut, once he’s finally healthy, will provide much-needed defense for Golden State. Jackson provides scoring, versatility and intense play.
