Pelicans trade forward Nikola Mirotic to Bucks


He was averaging 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds for Milwaukee this season, but hadn't been used in the last six Bucks games, even when head coach Mike Budenholzer emptied the bench in blowouts. He then moved to Canada where he played at Athlete Institute Academy in Mono, Ontario and was named the 2016 League MVP of the Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association.

Johnson, selected No. 8 by the Pistons in the 2015 draft, has produced mixed results through parts of four seasons. He is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds, shooting 38 percent from the field.

His best season with the Pistons may well have come when he was a rookie.

A third-year pro, Maker has seen a dramatic decrease in minutes this season, going from 16.7 a night last year to 11.7 this year, despite maintaining an nearly equal level of production. He is now averaging just over seven points and three rebounds per game and can become a free agent after this season.

Turns out, the Bucks were making a play all along for the Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic, and needed the Pistons involved to make things work.
