Spurs acquire Richard Jefferson from Milwaukee

Spurs get Richard Jefferson in exchange for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas, and Fabricio Oberto. Good deal for Milwaukee to get expiring contracts, and a good deal for the Spurs to get a solid wing player. I assume they'll address their big men depth in the draft and through free agency.

The Bucks intend to waive Fabricio Oberto and Bruce Bowen as soon as the Richard Jefferson trade is finalized, according to Oberto's agent.
Both players could easily re-sign with the Spurs, who suddenly have a dearth of big men with only Tim Duncan, Matt Bonner and Ian Mahinmi under contract.

A high-ranking Bucks official said Tuesday that the team is in the process of trading newly acquired center Fabricio Oberto to Detroit for power forward Amir Johnson.
If this deal goes through, and it sounds like it will, the Bucks will have a power forward to replace Charlie Villanueva, who may be lost to free agency this summer. Then again, the Bucks do have some added flexibility to re-sign CV and Ramon Sessions after today's three-for-one trade with the Spurs. If Johnson starts for the Bucks he should have a breakout season.
First they were gonna release him now they are gonna trade him.
