CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Bobcats have traded top scorer Stephen Jackson to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-way deal involving the Sacramento Kings that gave Charlotte two picks in the top nine of the NBA draft.
The Bobcats also sent the 19th pick, Tennessee's Tobias Harris, and backup point guard Shaun Livingston to the Bucks. Milwaukee, in desperate need of added scoring, also was to receive guard Beno Udrih from the Kings.
Charlotte got the No. 7 overall pick from Sacramento -- Bismack Biyombo of Congo -- and forward Corey Maggette from Milwaukee.
Guard John Salmons went from Milwaukee to Sacramento. And the Kings also got the 10th pick from the Bucks, BYU guard Jimmer Jimmer Fredette.
