NBA Trade Deadline 2012: Richard Jefferson Traded To Warriors For Stephen Jackson, According to Report

The Golden State Warriors are keeping themselves busy at the trade deadline this year as it was reported by Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports that the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs have come to a decision to trade Richard Jefferson to the W's and Jackson to the Spurs.

Per Marc Spears on Twitter:

Furthermore, Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson is reporting that the deal also includes a conditional first round pick for Golden State as well.

Jackson was a mainstay of the Warriors back from 2006-2010 including a short stint in Indiana in between. Jackson was acquired as part of the Monta Ellis trade to Milwuakee for Andrew Bogut, and will not even join the W's at all, heading straight to San Antonio instead.

Jefferson has averaged 9.2 points in 28.5 minutes off the bench this season, and comes to a Golden State squad in need of a steady veteran presence like Jefferson on their locker room of youth. He'll be another nice role player to add to Mark Jackson's bag of tricks the rest of the season.
