Three-way deal highlights NBA draft day trades
A three-way deal between the Charlotte Bobcats, Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings that featured the draft rights to BYU All-America Jimmer Fredette was the biggest of Thursday’s NBA draft day trades.
The Bobcats traded leading scorer Stephen Jackson, the rights to No. 19 pick Tobias Harris of Tennessee and backup point guard Shaun Livingston to the Bucks, who will also receive guard Beno Udrih from the Kings.
Fredette couldn’t meet with the media until the deal was final.
“Took a little while waiting back there,” said Fredette, obviously the favorite with the crowd at draft held at the Prudential Center. “But it’s a great moment for me and for my family and for the Sacramento Kings organization. Hopefully their fan base is excited because I’m really excited to get out there and start the season with them and have a great year.”
