OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors agreed Thursday to trade swingman Stephen Jackson to the San Antonio Spurs for small forward Richard Jefferson and a conditional first-round draft pick this year, a person with knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press.
Also Thursday, the Warriors announced they had acquired a second-round pick for this June's draft from the Atlanta Hawks for cash considerations.
Golden State acquired Jackson -- who helped the Warriors reach the second round of the playoffs in 2007 -- and center Andrew Bogut from the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown. There was immediate thought that the Warriors would then try to deal Jackson by Thursday's NBA trade deadline.
The 31-year-old Jefferson is averaging 9.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this season for the Spurs.
