Jefferson to San Antonio

With a lot of moves expected in the next few days and the rest of the off season, the Spurs may have hit a home run. The Spurs have agreed to trade Bruce Bowen, Fabricio Oberto, and Kurt Thomas to Milwaukee for Richard Jefferson.

This move is great for the Spurs who are looking to get a little younger, but also get someone that can create their own offense if Tony Parker or Manu Ginobili aren't on the floor. Udoka can become a new version of Bruce Bowen, but now the Spurs will need to find some toughness in the paint to back up Tim Duncan.

The Bucks get parts that allow them to play more defense, and I think Kurt Thomas has an expiring contract that may be useful later in the season. I just see the Bucks got older in this deal but may have gotten some salary cap relief in the future.

Great deal for the Spurs, maybe a good deal for the Bucks. Who do you think won out on this deal? Does either team get that much better?
