The New Jersey Nets and Milwaukee Bucks have come to terms on a proposed deal that would send Richard Jefferso to Milwaukee for forwards Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons.
This trade would clear up over $10 million in the future for a team that's goal is to get under the cap at the 2009 offseason. Bobby Simmons has 2 years left on his $9.28 million contract.
This will be a great move for Yi, considering he has wanted to play for a large market organization since he entered the league with Milwaukee.
This Bucks team could be a playoff contender with a new coach in Scott Skiles and a veteran star to fill a need position at the SF.
Of course, New Jersey isn't looking to contend right away, and right now, it looks like a player like Danilo Gallinari or Joe Alexander could be New Jersey's pick at No. 10.
As for the Bucks, they now have a very talented starting five with Mo Williams, Micheal Redd, Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueva, and Andrew Bogut. Their only problem now is their depth up front.
Overall, this trade will improve the Bucks now, and the Nets in the future.
