MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Bucks official with knowledge of the deal says the team plans to send Richard Jefferson to the San Antonio Spurs for Bruce Bowen, Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto.

The person confirmed the pending trade to the The Associated Press and requested anonymity because the deal is not official until a call later Tuesday.

The Bucks are sending Jefferson away less than a year after acquiring the scoring forward in a draft day trade last season for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons. Jefferson's contract has two years and $29.2 million remaining on it.

Bowen, Thomas and Oberto give the Bucks a veteran group and financial flexibility. None are signed beyond the upcoming season.

ESPN.com first reported details of the deal.
