Maybe the Spurs will be the even year champs now

FILE - In this May 8, 2008 file photo, San Antonio Spurs' Kurt Thomas(notes) (40) looks to pass against the New Orleans Hornets during the first quarter in Game 3 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals basketball game in San Antonio. A Bucks official, who requested anonymity, with knowledge of the deal said Tuesday June 23, 2009, that Milwaukee plans to trade scoring forward Richard Jefferson(notes) to the San Antonio Spurs for Bruce Bowen(notes), Thomas and Fabricio Oberto(notes), giving them a veteran cast and financial flexibility.
The Spurs finally got some scoring punch. The Spurs needed to make this move and RJ needed to get out of Milwaukee.  The man pictured is Kurt Thomas, dead weight to make the deal work. Thomas is a mean hooper but he's gettin up in age and the last thing the Spurs need is more experience.

Jefferson, 29, averaged 19.6 points in his one season with the Bucks. The trade gave both sides what they were after: Milwaukee needed to cut its payroll, and the Spurs needed and a young and healthy offensive threat after a long distinction as the NBA’s oldest team.

Exactly.  It's a youth movement in San Antonio.  Another player Stank-0 is glad to see leave SA is Bruce Bowen, the dirtiest player in the NBA.  Stank-0 might actually start cheering for the Spurs now.  RJ is still owed $29.2M over the final two years of his deal.
