UPDATE at 2:11 p.m: CSN Bay Area contacted the Kings, who said they cannot comment on the report due to the NBA-imposed "dead period" which doesn't allow teams to comment on reported trades until the NBA Draft begins at 4 p.m. PT today. From NBC's Pro Basketball Talk:
The Milwaukee Bucks have been actively shopping their No. 10 pick for a while. The Kings have actively been shopping the No. 7 pick. They may have found a partner with each other and the Charlotte Bobcats thrown in for a three way.The sides are close to a deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.
Partial of deal: The Bucks get Stephen Jackson, Shaun Livingston, sources say. Charlotte gets the 7th pick and Corey Maggette.Milwaukees 10th overall pick goes to the Kings, source saysThe Bobcats will have the 7th and 9th picks in the draft tonight as part of the deal, source says.
The Kings also would get John Salmons in the deal. It doesnt make a lot of sense for the Kings to move down three spots to get Salmons back, there may be another trade there to follow. That or it was about saving money, although Salmons is owed 31 million over the next four seasons. They also get the No. 19 pick.
The Bucks also would get Beno Udrih, but mostly they get a guy in Jackson who can create his own shot and score in a way they lacked last season.READ MORE
