Bobcats Trade Stephen Jackson To Bucks, Land No. 7 From Kings

The Milwaukee Bucks, Charlotte Bobcats and Sacramento Kings have worked out a trade that results in Stephen Jackson, Beno Udrih, Shaun Livingston and the No. 19 pick in Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft being sent to Milwaukee, Corey Maggette and the No. 7 pick being sent to Charlotte and the No. 10 pick and John Salmons going to Sacramento, according to multiple reports. Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the full deal.

With the deal, the Bobcats now have the No. 7 and No. 9 picks in the first round. It's unclear what new GM Rich Cho's aim is here. He could pick up a wing (Kawhi Leonard, Chris Singleton) and a big man (Bismack Biyombo, Tristan Thompson), or package both picks to leap up to grab a higher-profile prospect.

The Bucks, meanwhile, shed quite a bit of salary in Maggette and Salmons, pick up an affordable back-up point guard in Udrih, and only moved from No. 10 to No. 19 to do so. Jackson will be an interesting fit to say the least.

The Kings managed to get older, worse, more expensive and downgrade their draft pick in a single trade.
