First reported by Dave “Softy” Mahler of Sports Radio 950 KJR-Seattle, the Kings are on the verge of trading undersized power forward Jon Brockman to the Milwaukee Bucks.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings would receive forward Darnell Jackson and a future second-round pick in return.

Brockman, 23, was extended a qualifying offer by the Kings, but he never signed the offer, missing all of the Kings’ summer league action in Las Vegas. He was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers No. 36 overall and traded with Sergio Rodriguez to Sacramento.

Brockman was one of the NBA’s most efficient rebounders last season. At six-feet-seven-inches he grabbed an average of 4.1 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game. He also averaged 2.8 points per game on 53.4 percent shooting.

Given the nickname “The Brockness Monster,” Brockman’s hustle and scrappiness made him a fan favorite in Arco Arena.

Jackson, 24, was drafted No. 56 overall by the Miami Heat in 2008 and was traded on the same day to the Cleveland Cavaliers. After playing 78 games in two season with the Cavs, he was waived. He was claimed off waivers by the Bucks but only played one game.

Jackson is 6-feet-9-inches and has career averages of 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in seven minutes of play per game.
