The Bucks dealt Richard Jefferson to the Spurs for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas, and Fabricio Oberto reports say.

A little suprised the Spurs would let Bowen go.

Only 2 million of Bowen's deal is guaranteed, so he will be cut soon. A hell of a steal for the Spurs though who can now ease up on minutes for the Big 3. This could be the year that the "haves" really pull away from the "have nots".

Jefferson spent one year in Milwaukee after being traded for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons. Yi Jianlian spent one year in Milwaukee after his people initally told the Bucks to not bother drafting him.

In other words, I don't think Milwaukee knows what it's doing. I always vote against Herb Kohl because I know there's no chance of him selling them team while he's still a US Senator, and there's no chance of the team being good while he's the owner.

I think the Spurs made an excellent move here. Jefferson is an excellent fit. He is one of the more intelligent players out there. While RJ may not be the physical presence on defense that Bowen is, he more than makes up for that with his quickness and scoring ability. Jefferson is a capable defender in his own right, although not as physical. As far as experience goes, dont forget that the man was in two NBA finals so far in his career. Overall, the Spurs get more athletic and dangerous on the offensive end, while sacrificing their power position depth. I'm sure they have more tricks up their sleeves to replace Thomas and Oberto's presence. Plus, I hear at least one of the three will be waived by Milwaukee. I'm sure they'll get scooped up by SA if they do get waived. The Spurs are now back in contender land.

Looks like the Spurs are lining up for one last run in the Duncan era. Looks like the Bucks are trying to fade further into obscurity.

Bowen will be back. He will be bought of of his contract by the Bucks and resign with the Spurs. If the Lakers lose Ariza and/or Odom, I would say the Spurs have the be the favorites out of the west then.



Life is hilariously cruel.

I actually read somewhere that he had a falling out of sorts with Popovich.

An interesting side note to the Bucks they passed on resigning Charlie Villanueva and their first round pick sounds like trouble ... Click Here (sports.espn.go.com)

So, is the order of poorly run teams now Clips, Bucks, Kings, Grizz?

I'm not a Bucks fan, im a Warriors fan. Not much difference there but, I hope this leads to more playing time for Joe Alexander. I fallow the Bucks because he is a Mountaineer. So go eers. Plus Detroit is falling appart as well. If the King leaves next year the Central will be a horrible division.

I might put the Grizz up to 2 off of the Gasol trade. None of the other teams have been ripped off as badly, they've just had their core fade away (Kings), had one good year and then faded (Bucks) and have sucked for pretty much 30 years (Clippers). And, to round out the Bottom 5 (since it is tough to judge the Knicks when factoring out Isiah), I'd give a slight nod to the Bullets/Wizards over the Warriors, as at least the Warriors have the historic win over the #1 seed Mavericks from a few years ago to hang their hats on.
