Golden State Warriors' star guard Monta Ellis was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson according to ESPN's report:

The Milwaukee Bucks agreed to trade Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors, a source confirmed to ESPN.com.

"The Bucks will receive guard Monta Ellis, forward Ekpe Udoh and center Kwame Brown, the person confirmed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the deal on its website Tuesday night. NBA Rumor Central ESPN Insider can help you keep up with the latest info as the NBA trade deadline approaches. Check back often for the latest buzz. Rumor Central Speaking before Golden State's game at Sacramento, Ellis said he and Udoh were headed back to Oakland.

'It's not a bad thing, man,' Ellis said. 'Not at all. We are going to another team to do the same thing we love to do. I'm riding back home with him 'Ellis, whose future has been subject to trade speculation, was reminded that he recently said he wanted to stay with the Warriors long-term. 'Well, everybody says that,' Ellis said. 'But sometimes it [doesn't] always work out like that.'"

This trade makes sense for both teams in my opinion. Golden State was in desperate need of an experimented front-court player and Bogut will give them a lift. Stephen Jackson was unhappy in Milwaukee and is coming back to a team where he was a leader several years ago.

The Milwaukee Bucks needed a legitimate threat from the perimeter, Monta Ellis is a proven prolific scorer in the NBA. The Jennings/Ellis  should be pretty explosive.
