2011 NBA Draft: Bobcats-Kings-Bucks Three-Way Trade - June 24

Charlotte Bobcats Get: SF-Corey Maggette, 7th pick
Sacramento Kings Get: SG-John Salmons, 10th pick
Milwaukee Bucks Get: SG-Stephen Jackson, SG-Shaun Livingston, PG-Beno Udrih, 19th pick

Why this makes sense for Charlotte:

The Bobcats now hold two of the top seven picks in the 2011 NBA Draft which helps their much-needed re-building effort. They do have to take on Corey Maggette, but his contract is a wash with Jackson's, and he's more of a true three, something Charlotte needs since trading Gerald Wallace.

Why this makes sense for Sacramento:

I am not sure about this. I guess Salmons is better than Beno Udrih and can play in the same backcourt with the ball dominant Tyreke Evans. However, Salmons' contract looks rather hideous after a very disappointing 2010-11 season. Moving down three picks and trading Udrih, their only true point guard, likely means Sacramento goes after Kemba Walker or Jimmer Fredette at No. 10.

Why this makes sense for Milwaukee:

Milwaukee dumps the remaining two years of Maggette's deal which is worth more than $21 million, as well as Salmons' remaining four years, $31 million. Jackson is an upgrade over Salmons at the two and gives the Bucks another guard who can create, which is something they need. Udrih provides an upgrade over Keyon Dooling as a backup point guard to Brandon Jennings.
