MILWAUKEE BUCKS SENT ANDREW BOGUT TO GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
Fri, 16 Mar 2012 05:23 PM EDT

The Milwaukee Bucks traded Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors for a 3-player package headed by high-scoring guard Monta Ellis. NFL spreads

The Bucks additionally receive forward Ekpe Udoh and center Kwame Brown in the agreement.

The exchange represents a parting of strategies between the Bucks and Bogut, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft who has struggled with injuries. It also permits the Bucks to lose Jackson, who had fallen out of favor with Coach Scott Skiles and now gets to rejoin his former team. NFL lines

For the Warriors, the trade breaks up the little backcourt of Ellis and Stephen Curry and brings in the type of big man the franchise has been looking for years.

“We’re extremely excited to acquire a player the caliber of Andrew Bogut, who we think is undeniably one of the top centers in the NBA,” GM Larry Riley claimed. “He will add a factor of toughness to our team and will supply us with scoring, rebounding and a defensive presence in the middle. We’ve lacked those elements in recent times and think that Andrew’s addition will be a main element in the growth of our team.”

Bogut fractured his left ankle January 25 against Houston when he landed clumsily, and it’s not clear if he’ll be well placed to return this season. The original timetable for his recovery was 8 to 12 weeks. It’s one of several major injuries that have tormented Bogut throughout his career.

Bogut missed the end of the 2009-10 season when he dislocated his right elbow, sprained his right wrist and broke his right hand in a tough fall to the floor. The injury worried him for most of last season.

When Bogut has played, he has played well. In 408 career games, he’s averaging 12.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots.

Jackson, meanwhile, hasn’t played since February 19, latterly sitting out with what the team has described as a hamstring injury. Skiles benched him for a game in January after he missed a shootaround, he was postponed one game by the NBA for verbally abusing an official and his playing time has been limited ever since then.

Ellis has been the Warriors’ main offensive threat, averaging 21.9 points. But Golden State struggled to win with the backcourt tandem of Ellis and Curry. The contract clears a spot for 6-foot-7 newbie Klay Thompson to take over at shooting guard, adding needed size to the starting backcourt.

Ellis confirmed a 6-year, $66 million agreement in July 2008, and then injured his left ankle in August in a low-speed moped crash — an offseason activity forbidden in his deal as is the standard provision for contracts around the league. It cost him a 30-game suspension with no pay.

Udoh is averaging 5.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in 21.8 minutes for the Warriors. Udoh is an athletic power forward who was Golden State’s 6th pick in the 2010 draft out of Baylor. The Warriors hoped he would become a reliable defender, rebounder and shot blocker.

Brown, a former No. One overall pick by Washington, is likely out for the season with a chest injury and will likely be eligible to be a free agent this summer.
