OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors have traded swingman Stephen Jackson to the San Antonio Spurs for small forward Richard Jefferson and a conditional first-round draft pick this year.

The team announced the deal Thursday. The Warriors also had acquired a second-round pick for this June's draft from the Atlanta Hawks for cash considerations in an earlier deal.

Golden State acquired Jackson — who helped the Warriors reach the second round of the playoffs in 2007 — and center Andrew Bogut from the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown. There was immediate thought that the Warriors would then try to deal Jackson by Thursday's NBA trade deadline.
