Bucks get Ellis in deal for injured Bogut
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A person with direct knowledge of the deal says the Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to trade center Andrew Bogut and forward Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors.
The Bucks will receive guard Monta Ellis, forward Ekpe Udoh and center Kwame Brown, the person confirmed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the deal on its website Tuesday night.
The trade represents a parting of the ways between the Bucks and Bogut, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft who has struggled with injuries. It also allows the Bucks to rid themselves of Jackson, who had fallen out of favor with coach Scott Skiles.
