According to multiple reports from various sources, the Golden State Warriors have pulled the trigger on the deal that sends Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and the injured Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for the injured Andrew Bogut and the disgruntled Stephen Jackson. Neither team has made official confirmation, but based on the number of media sources citing the same deal, including Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel, this trade appears done.

Stephen Jackson will make his return to the Warriors after being traded to the Charlotte Bobcats during the 2009-10 season. Bogut suffered a ankle fracture earlier this season but is reportedly on his way to making a return and could potentially be available for the playoffs.

In trading away Ellis, the Warriors seem to have made a clear choice about their future back court after having seen Ellis and Stephen Curry play together over the past few years.

More analysis and discussion of this deal to come.
