Milwaukee Bucks trade John Salmons, Corey Maggette and number 10 pick

He’s the latest chunk of Milwaukee Bucks information floating in the sea of trade rumors.

Chad Ford with the apparently final information on a crazy deal:

Bucks get Beno, Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston & 19. Bobcats get pick 7 & Maggette. Kings get 10 & John Salmons.

Whoa … again.

Minutes after Gery Woelfel’s tweet on the Bucks and the Kings, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! tweeted the Bobcats would be involved in a three way deal. He’s now updated involving players:

Partial of deal: The Bucks get Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston, sources say. Charlotte gets the 7th pick and Corey Maggette.

Whoa.

First the Observer, and then this. Gery Woelfel has Tweeted a rather big piece of news:

Bucks appear to have deal with Sacamento for No. 7

No word yet on who is involved or the specifics.

Here’s an old one (and by old, I mean I added this and started this page roughly two minutes ago and it’s already irrelevant). This one’s from the Charlotte Observer:

There are definitely serious talks going on between the Charlotte Bobcats and Milwaukee Bucks. Don’t know all the particulars yet, but it sounds like the Bobcats could end with the 10th pick and maybe send No. 19 to Milwaukee.

The article goes on to mention the similarities in the contracts of Corey Maggette and Stephen Jackson. Do with that what you will.

  1. Whoa indeed. Love Jackson. Beno’s contract is a surprise but at least it’s shorter than Salmons’. Salaries are pretty much a wash but we get a little younger and shorter contracts (2 years each).

    Priorities are still the same though, SG and PF. We now have our backup pg.

  2. I simply cannot fathom how this trade makes the Bucks better in any shape or form. Charlotte clearly won this trade and I’m pretty much fed up with Hammond/Skiles/Kohl.

  3. @Aaron
    It’s tough to have too many feelings about it right now. Jackson is better than Maggette and Udrih is probably a better fit than Salmons.

  4. @Jeremy – I can understand that part of it, but we dropped 10 spots for those small differences while Charlotte was compensated with Corey Maggette for a 2 spot drop?
