Report: Spurs land Richard Jefferson from Bucks in four player deal

The San Antonio Spurs just made a case to be considered among the best teams in the Western Conference once again. According to sources, the Spurs have agreed to acquire Richard Jefferson from the Bucks in exchange for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto.

It's not hard to see that this is a great deal for San Antonio as they get a wing presence to join Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, while hardly giving anything up to do so. Bowen is a lockdown defender but his best days are far behind him. Kurt Thomas is not the same player he once was either.

This may be the first in a series of trades to go down before Thursday's NBA Draft, with the Wizards rumored to be shopping their 5th overall pick and the Suns dangling Amare Stoudemire once again.
