The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs have completed a trade that would send Richard Jefferson to the Warriors and newly-acquired Stephen Jackson to San Antonio, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The deal was rumored earlier Thursday. The Warriors will also receive a conditional first-round pick, according to Marcus Thompson of the Contra Coast Times.
The move reunites Jackson with Tim Duncan, with whom he won a championship in 2003. Jackson has one year and just over $10 million remaining on his contract after this season, while Jefferson is owed $10.1 million next season and has a player option for just over $11 million in 2013-14.
