By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES-Kareem Ab-
dul-Jabbar, three times an All-
American at UCLA and three
times the Most Valuable Player
in the National Basketball As-
sociation at Milwaukee, became
a Los Angeles Laker yesterday
in a trade that sent four players
to the Bucks.
Jabbar, 28, signed a five-year,
multi-million d o11 a r contract
with the Lakers in the deal that
sent center Elmore Smith, re-
serve guard Brian Winters and
two 1975 first round - draft
choices, 6-foot-8 Dave Meyers
and 6-5 Junior Bridgeman, to
the Bucks.
Besides Jabbar, Los Angeles
also received his backup at cen-
ter with Milwaukee, 6-1I Walt
Wesley.
Lakers owner Jack Kent
Cooke announced the trade in
a news conference on the floor
of the Forum. Lights were ex-
tinguished and a spotlight
played ontAbdul-Jabbar as he
entered the arena he now
will call home.
He is expected to make at
least $500,000 a year with the
Lakers although no one, includ-
ing the 7-3 center, would divulge
details of the pact except its
length.
"In my opinion, he is the
best basketball player in the
world today and as far as I
know he could be the best bas-

ketball player of all time,"
Cooke said.
Jabbar said, "Everybody has
patted me on the back on com-
ing here, and I hope I can live
up to it. I think I can."
Long-rumored, the t r a d e
has been in the works sev-
eral weeks. A stumbling block
was that Milwaukee demanded
that both All-American Mey-
ers of UCLA and Bridgeman
of Louisville be signed to con-
tracts before the exchange

o LA
deal
could be consumated.
Cooke announced that both
had signed - Bridgeman only
last Saturday. Again, the con-
tract terms were not disclosed,
but it was reliably reported
that Meyers signed a five-year
deal for $1.5 million. Cooke said
Bridgeman also signed a multi-
year contract.
The 7-1 Smith became the
Lakers' regular center two sea-
sons ago when Wilt Chamber-
lain quit to become player-coach
with the San Diego Conquista-
dors of the American Basket-
ball Association. Smith, 26, had
been acquired from Buffalo in
1973 in exchange for Jim Mc-
Millian.
All six of the players involved
were first round draft choices
by the NBA teams, with Smith
Buffalo's top choice in 1971 out
of Kentucky State.
Jabbar, who had asked to
be traded from Milwaukee,
said frankly that his first
preference was the New York
Knicks. "I had a strong de-
sire to return home," said
Jabbar, who grew up as Fer-
dinand Lewis Alcindor in New
York City.
After starring at Powell Me-
morial High School, he decided
on UCLA and led them to three
national collegiate basketball
championships. In his three var-

The' Michigan Daily
S ort s

sity seasons, the Bruins lost
only two games.
Jabbar said the Lakers made
a "sincere effort" to get him,
which was not the case in New
York, and "I don't think it is
smart to go to people who don't
really want you."
The Bucks will build their fu-
ture around the four youtng
players.
The veteran among them is
the 26-year-old Smith, a four-
year pro who starred at Ken-
tucky State and who has spent
two years as a starter for the
Buffalo Braves and the Lakers.
Winters averaged about 11.5
points per game in his 1975
rookie season with the Lakers.
The 64 guard from South Caro-
lina was the Lakers' first pick
in the 1974 college draft.
The 6-8 Meyers, a strong and
aggressive p 1 a y e r, captained
UCLA to the NCAA title and a
28-3 record this last season, his
second as a starter.
Bridgeman, a 6-5 guard with
his strong suit being defense,
scored enough points to be-
come the fifth-highest scorer in
Louisville history as he led the

Cardinals into a thrilling NCAA
semifinal clash against UCLA,
which the Bruins won in over-
time. He was twice named the
Most Valuable Player in the
Missouri Valley Conference.
HOOP NOTE
Well folks, Phil Hubbard
has done it again! The high
school sensation from Can-
ton, Ohio listed by the Roa-
noake Times' annual survey
as one of the top 40 prospects
in the nation has decided .. .
well he hasn't. Again.
But he has called a press
conference for this Wednes-
day to publicly announce
what he said he would an-
nounce a month ago, namely
his school for next fall. Daily
sources say that he will
choose from either Michigan,
Ohio State, Iowa, Louisville,
and now Pitt. Who knows!
But tune in Thursday for an-
other episode of "recruiting
madness."'
