Andrew Bogut and Monta Ellis have each been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks, so it's only fitting that the two are exchanging jerseys.
Bogut will be sent to the Golden State Warriors, along with Stephen Jackson, in exchange for Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown, according to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith.
Bogut, who was Milwaukee's first overall pick in 2005, has averaged 12.7 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in his first six-plus seasons. This season, the 7-footer is averaging 11.3 points and 8.3 rebounds in 30.3 minutes per game in just 12 games.
Ellis, the NBA's Most Improved Player in 2006-07, is averaging 21.9 points and six assists in 36.9 minutes per game this season. The 26-year-old guard averaged 24.1 points per contest last season and a career-high 25.5 points per game in 2009-10.
Jackson, who's heading to Golden State with Bogut, played parts of four seasons with the Warriors from 2007-2009. The 33-year-old swingman is averaging 10.5 in 27.4 minutes per game this season.
Udoh, meanwhile, was in the midst of his second season with Golden State, while Kwame Brown will be joining his seventh different team since getting drafted first overall by Washington in 2001.
