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.

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.

Surprises the hell out of me but it makes the team a lot better than they were before.

I miss Jefferson, he was one of my favorite players and the Nets got rid of him for basically nothing as Yi is not very good.

Spurs window is closed. They're too old and there is too much young talent in the west in their way. I think this was a good trade for them but in the long run i can't see it elevating them past the Lakers.

Bucks just wanted Cap space as Larry Harris made some bad moves to get them in cap hell/ just weren't good moves (signing Gadzuric and Bobby Simmons to huge deals, drafting Yi when he didn't want to go to the Bucks and wasn't very good anyways, trading Magloire for Steve Blake and some other big Asian dude).

Plus, the Bucks need veteran leaders that will play defense, KT and Bowen give them that.

Nice move!..Now we need a decent PF/C to play alongside Timmy.

Go Spurs Go!!

Bowen will likely be bought out and back to the Spurs IMO.

Not a bad move at all for the Spurs....I can't believe they finally got rid of Bowen though.

There’s no chance Bowen returns to the Spurs if the Bucks buy him out as well. His relationship with Gregg Popovich deteriorated with his dwindling role a year ago, and that partnership is over

Im hoping he returns..but his play last yr deteriorated last yr too>but hey hes 38.RC Buford still has a couple of moves to make in the bigs department,I hope they arent ignoring the fact that the Spurs could still use a defensive specialist.

that was true before the trade. getting jefferson was HUGE for san antonio. the only thing that's too old is duncan - and this bought them a little more time. if they can find someone decent to spell and eventually replace duncan (they're out there) san antonio will be right back in the thick of things.

i see the days of western conference domination being over though. the east has the youth and the talent.

Duncan is 32..And yes the ship has sailed and he'll be done in 2012..The addition of Jefferson helps immensely as Manu can be fresher for the playoffs.The Spurs aren't done yet,at least until Pop and Duncan leave.

"only Duncan" is kind of an understatement considering he's the best player they've ever had and the key cog in their Championship dynasty. It's not like he's replaceable. With him being on the decline i can't see them winning anymore Championships any time soon. The West is too tough.

You realize how long the Spurs and their fans have been listening to this crap?The Spurs have just added a huge piece to their puzzle,and I do mean HUGE..It was definitely something they were lacking,and all that is needed is C/PF and maybe another big along the line somewhere that can possibly be found in the draft or FA...The Spurs have a big 4 now, something they haven't had the whole time Duncan and Pop have been there.Should be interesting to see what happens.

A healthy Spurs team will only get tougher.

he's not ancient - but he has been on a noticeable decline of late. parker and ginobili can't make up for the points that duncan is no longer putting up - jefferson can. that's why i think duncan on the downswing isn't the end of the world just yet - they just need a decent back up before his days are officially numbered. look what shaq did with mourning (i know - finding someone like mourning to spell duncan won't be easy).

:lol:Michael Redd is who I thought they were talking about when this whole trade thing came up..Think of it this way at least you clear cap,and keep your main bigs.And you still own the Spurs.

Jefferson helps because it gives the Spurs another wing player that can create his own shot.
