Richard Jefferson Traded for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons

According to Chad Ford:

The Bucks and Nets have also done a deal that could have a big impact on the draft

The Bucks are sending Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons to New Jersey for Richard Jefferson, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

That means the Bucks may be less likely to take Joe Alexander at No. 8. He's a small forward like Jefferson and they may decide to go with a guard now -- either Russell Westbrook or Jerryd Bayless.

The Nets have the No. 10 and No. 21 picks. It's unclear how this will affect their draft picks. We'll keep digging.

 

If the Bucks are now in the market for a point guard, it may negate any advantage we gained when Indiana acquired T.J. Ford.
