This is a trade nearly big enough to steal the spotlight from the draft.

ESPN - Sources: Nets agree to trade Jefferson to Bucks for Yi, Simmons


    The New Jersey Nets and Milwaukee Bucks are on the verge of a trade that will send Richard Jefferson to the Bucks for forwards Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons, according to NBA front-office sources.

    Sources told ESPN.com that the deal has been agreed to and submitted for league approval in advance of Thursday night's draft. No draft picks are involved in the trade, sources said.


I like this trade for Jersey, because it's way past time for Jefferson to move on and get a fresh start. Simmons can capably fill the void left by Jason Kidd and Yi still has a lot of potential. I just feel bad for the Chinese that now have to sit through overseas broadcasts of every Vince Carter game.

Bucks fans are happy to be rid of Yi (and Bobby Simmons' contract), and are glad to have a proven player like Jefferson. Of course then the draft goes all wonky and they end up drafting Joe Alexander, another forward. Most fans were looking for a pure PG, someone who passes the ball more than Mo Williams does.

All the Brooklyn Nets are missing now is those guys on the runways with the sticks to guide Air Lebron on in.

Totally what this trade is about. All the Nets cared about was Simmons' contract expiring after 2009. Hello, Bron.

Having construction on the arena in Brooklyn begin would also be helpful.

WTF was I thinking? Well, if the Pistons win out tonight...I'll be very glad I was wrong.
