Bucks and Warriors have agreed in principle on trade to send Bogut and Jackson to Warriors for Ellis, Udoh and Brown, league source tells Y!

The Bucks were willing to do anything to get rid of Stephen Jackson after all.
This doesn’t look like much now, but if the rumors are to be believed, this could possibly be part of a process to get Monta Ellis to the Orlando Magic. Kwame Brown could have been thrown in the deal to make the numbers work. He is coming off the books at the end of the season. And Ekpe Udoh is an interesting case in the plus/minus stat: every time he enters the floor, his team goes on a run. His adjusted plus/minus for the year is 10.78 which is pretty impressive for a team as bad as the Warriors.
And so ends the Andrew Bogut era in Milwaukee. It was an era fraught with promising starts and rampant stops. Good luck to him, but the organization had to move away from a centerpiece that could never stay on the court.
The deal will be completed later tonight.
