Bucks' forward Richard Jefferson admitted recently that he was in fact frustrated by the trade that sent him from New Jersey to Milwaukee.

"You know, I was frustrated," said Jefferson. "But now I'm excited. People misconstrued that I was unhappy going to Milwaukee. Man, I was unhappy about leaving the only team I had been a part of. I was the last one standing from the team that went to the Finals, the guys that won three straight division championships, the guys that made the Nets respectable -- and respectable for a long time. I didn't want to go. But it wasn't about Milwaukee."

Jefferson also claims that he understands why the Nets decided to trade him.

"The organization is trying to cut costs," said Jefferson. "When you are a part of an organization for seven years, you hear about things on the business side. You hear that they might want to go in a different direction."

The Bucks are one of the most irrelevant teams in the NBA, no one would want to play for them. Jefferson really deserves better than the Bucks, but it looks like he's stuck there for at least a season.

I wonder if they'll be getting anywhere anyway. Playoffs? Anything is possible in the East. :lol:

Redd, Jefferson, Villanueva, Bogut.

If they don't make the playoffs, that's sad.

An injury to one of those players and they are in trouble.

charlie v isnt that great but he can shoot, jefferson and redd are both 20+ ppg scorers so offense shouldnt be an issue, bogut is a decent bigman, he had improved his shotblocking and rebounding considerebly but is still only decent and i see a lot of talent in ramon sessions, they need more inside scoring than just bogut tho, i say they can make the playoffs in the east but itll still be competition against teams like

boston
detroit (no one is traded yet)
cleveland
atlanta
washintgton
orlando
philly
toronto

also possibly miami and chicago
