Default BREAKING NEWS: Spurs trade Bowen, Oberto, Thomas to Bucks for Jefferson!

This is being reported by ESPN. The Bucks have reportedly accepted to trade Richard Jefferson to the Spurs in return for the expiring contracts of Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto.

More info will be posted as it comes out.

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.

NBA Rumor Central

ESPN Insider has the updated buzz from the National Basketball Association rumor mill.
Story Insider

The two teams have agreed to the deal in principle. A trade call to make the deal official will happen 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. The Bucks expect to save $6.35 million next season after releasing Bowen (only $2 million guaranteed) and Oberto (only $1.9 million guaranteed), a source told ESPN.com.

That may give the Bucks the wiggle room to sign one or both of their restricted free agents -- Charlie Villanueva or Ramon Sessions -- next year.

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

great trade for the Spurs, you gave up "garbage" and got a player like RJ, that is really going to be a nice addition for your team, he is a player i liked the Suns to try and go after, guess we gotta focus else where now

Awesome trade for the Spurs! I bet there's another big move coming too.

Hopefully the Spurs will wreck the Lakers and take the west next year.

I wouldn't mind a Spurs/Celtics finals.

On a side note, after being traded to the Bucks, Fabricio Oberto was quickly sent to the Detroit Pistons in return for Amir Johnson.

I completely exploded when I heard this. What a great move by the Spurs. We have the best Front Office in the League. Now we have the Big 4.

- Tony Parker
- Manu Ginobili
- Richard Jefferson
- Tim Duncan

That is a Championship Team right there.
