Oakland, Calif. • A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Golden State Warriors have agreed to trade Stephen Jackson to the San Antonio Spurs for small forward Richard Jefferson.
Golden State acquired Jackson — who helped the Warriors reach the second round of the playoffs in 2007 — and center Andrew Bogut from the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown. There was immediate thought that the Warriors would then try to deal Jackson by the NBA trade deadline Thursday at 1 p.m. MDT.
The 31-year-old Jefferson is averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this season for the Spurs.
