The Warriors and Bucks have completed the NBA trade deadline's first blockbuster, swapping Monta Ellis and Andrew Bogut in a five-player deal.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors have dropped the first bombshell two days before the NBA's trade deadline, completing a blockbuster move that will send Andrew Bogut to Golden State and Monta Ellis to Milwaukee, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnaroski. The Bucks will also receive promising young center Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown, while the Warriors will take back Stephen Jackson and his $10 million contract for next year.

Bogut has missed all but 12 games this year due to an ankle injury and is expected to miss more time, but the Warriors have coveted a franchise big man for a while, and Bogut is only two years removed from being that kind of guy for a very good Bucks team. Ellis, meanwhile, has seemingly been involved in trade rumors for forever, but the Warriors had previously resisted to move him unless a major piece was coming back. Evidently, Bogut is that major piece.

Update: The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is also reporting the trade.
