Warriors Acquire Andrew Bogut In Five-Player Trade
Golden State has been looking for a big man and they may finally get it in Andrew Bogut. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Bucks traded Bogut and Stephen Jackson to Milwaukee for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown.
Tim Kawakami reported earlier today that Ellis and the Warriors have discussed whether it’s time for the shooting guard to be traded. He has grown frustrated with the team’s inability to construct a contending roster and wanted a fresh start.
Jackson would play a similar role to Ellis, but the interesting thing would be what the Bucks would do with Brandon Jennings? Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Jennings won’t be traded and the Ellis deal was completed to create a dynamic backcourt. Bogut had asked for a trade and got his wish.
Chad Ford reports that the Warriors have to send its first round pick to Utah if the pick isn’t in the top seven. With Bogut out for the season, Golden State may end up keeping that pick.
