Re: 2012 Trade Deadline Deal: GS trade SJax To Spurs for Richard Jefferson + 1st
Good trade for GS. Jefferson is a pro's pro, although he is in decline. Got a first round pick to help rebuild the roster. Jefferson at least will make an effort on defense and has size.
And he is under contract, so he has to stay in GS.
Good trade for the Spurs - better scorer in Jax; he should be happy competing with a winning team. And he is an expirer next year, so they can trade him next season if he is a problem.
And the Spurs can save their amnesty on another player.
