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."
