Bucks trading for Pelicans big man Mirotic

Bucks trading for Pelicans big man Mirotic”

The Bucks will send Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson to New Orleans.

In a largely quiet (so far) final day before the NBA's 3 p.m. trade deadline arrives, the Eastern Conference-leading Bucks have made a deal to acquire Pelicans power forward Nikola Mirotic, according to ESPN.

Another significant component to this move is the draft compensation that will be going the Pelicans' way. With the trade deadline just hours away, the Bucks have decided to make a move that they believe will help them reach this lofty goal.

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

Also, by jettisoning both Johnson and Smith, the Bucks open up a spot on their 15-man roster, which gives them an opening to peruse the buyout market throughout the rest of the month.

The Portland Trail Blazers were rumored to have interest in Mirotic as of Wednesday. It should be noted that Mirotic has been limited throughout the year due to various calf ailments. Johnson, 22, is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in his fourth season and becomes a restricted free agent in 2019. In order to sort out all the details of this revised deal, here are the latest NBA Trade Grades.
