AP sources: Kings, Bucks close to trade
Both people spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks had not been completed. The deal would send forward Darnell Jackson and a second-round pick to Sacramento as part of a sign-and-trade arrangement for Brockman, a power forward who started four games and appeared in 52 overall for the Kings last year as a rookie. He averaged 2.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in limited minutes.
The 23-year-old Brockman was a second-round pick by the Kings who impressed the coaches with his rugged play down low. He did not participate in Sacramento’s NBA Summer League schedule that ended Sunday.
Jackson began last year with Cleveland and appeared in 28 games before moving to Milwaukee when the Cavs waived him to bring back Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
Jackson, a second-year forward, played in one game with the Bucks. The 24-year-old former second-round pick most recently played in two summer league games in Las Vegas with the Bucks, averaging 9.5 points and 3.5 rebounds.
Milwaukee appears close to completing its busy summer filling a roster that will include only seven players from last season’s 46-36 run that ended with the franchise’s first playoff berth in four years.
Milwaukee traded Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell for small forward Corey Maggette in the days leading up to the draft, then selected forward Larry Sanders, guard Darington Hobson and forward Tiny Gallon.
The Bucks also struck two major deals in free agency, signing shooting guard John Salmons and power forward Drew Gooden to five-year contracts to add them to a core that includes center Andrew Bogut and point guard Brandon Jennings.
