Richard Jefferson to the Spurs for Bowen, KT, and Oberto.

Rumor or fact?

per Chad Ford

A rumor or fact per Chad Ford? (it's a deal that makes sense for both teams)

Oh snap.

Welcome back, San Antonio.
Bye, bye, 2010 plan.

I'm happy, though. The Spurs took advantage of a salary dump. Who's to say the Spurs could have gotten one of the big FAs anyway?
so Spurs are looking at

Parker
Jefferson
Finley
Duncan
Bonner

with Manu off the bench, or does this mean that Manu is gone

This is a much smarter move than 2010. You get an excellent wing scorer who is effective on both ends of the court (exactly what you needed), and you don't wait another year for Manu & Duncan to get older. I think that you should try to keep Gooden, and if you do that, you're now right up there with the Lakers in the West and legitimate contenders for the championship.

Great move for the Spurs, and Milwaukee got what they wanted, which is money to pay Villanueva with.
YEA WE GOT JEFFERSON! WOOO!
i really like this move for the Spurs

thats a pretty good team

Wow, good move for SA. Bowen is clearly declining, I wouldn't be surprised if he retired. Jefferson gets out of the hell that is Milwuakee that he never wanted to be in. At 29 he should be in his prime and fit very well with the Spurs. They need another big man though in the worst way. I don't think they're done making moves.

Wow. If they waste the money they saved on Charlie Villanueva then I take back what I said about this being a good trade for the Bucks.

Projected starting lineup (Spurs aren't done, though):

Parker
Mason/Ginobili
Jefferson
Duncan
Bonner

Spurs need a big. Bonner is garbage.

I agree with this statement.
Now I'm mad because it looked like Houston would become div. fave next year now its different.
good trade for the spurs, they desperately needed an athletic perimeter player at the 3
Bowen will get cut. He's coming back.

Even worse is that they are competing for the same guy now. If you were a big man, would you rather back up Yao or start in SA? That Gortat guy is loving this.
LA and I had an interesting discussion on RJ on April 29. Nice prediction, man.
