Just hours before the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings were set to tip off, the Warriors traded away their star guard Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Ellis has been the subject of rumors during the past few seasons, but this time it's really happening. 

Ellis has been dealt along with big man Ekpe Udoh and injured center Kwame Brown for center Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson.

Bogut has been hampered with an injury this season but is the big man that the Warriors have been looking for. However, it is not likely that he will play at all for the remainder of the season.

Jackson played for the Warriors from 2007-2009 before demanding a trade out of Golden State.
