If you subscribe to the conspiracy theory of the NBA Draft Lottery; either the Charlotte Bobcats, Brooklyn Nets, or New Orleans Hornets will win the number one overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.  All three franchises sorely need a boost which expected top overall prospect, Anthony Davis of Kentucky will certainly provide to whichever franchise selects him.

Milwaukee Bucks Make a Splash for Stephen Jackson


The Milwaukee Bucks took part in a three-way deal with the Charlotte Bobcats and Sacramento Kings in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft which was highlighted by Stephen Jackson becoming a Buck.

Jackson is joined by Charlotte’s Shaun Livingston, Sacramento’s Beno Udrih and the 19th overall pick Tobias Harris of Tennessee. The Bucks sent Corey Maggette to Charlotte and John Salmon/10th overall pick Jimmer Fredette to the Kings.

Overall, I would have to say the Bucks made an upgrade as well did the Bobcats while the Kings took the brunt of the deal.
