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.

Corey Maggette

If there’s one positive thing you should take from the Milwaukee Bucks preseason finale loss to the Luke Ridnours Minnesota Timberwolves, it should be this: Corey Maggette, even playing at less than 80 percent, will carry this team to the charity stripe.
