The Bucks Have Reportedly Traded For Pelicans Forward Nikola Mirotic

The Bucks Have Reportedly Traded For Pelicans Forward Nikola Mirotic”

"He is a skilled, two-way player who fits extremely well into our system".

The Bucks will include center Jason Smith and recently-acquired forward Stanley Johnson, as four first-round picks will make their way to The Big Easy, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times. The team has placed an emphasis on three-point shooting this year with the addition of new head coach Mike Budenholzer, and Mirotic should certainly provide some reinforcements in that regard - he's taking 7.2 per game and knocking down almost 37 percent of them. The Australian has appeared in 35 of Milwaukee's 52 games so far this season, finding himself buried on the bench amongst a crowded and talented Bucks' frontcourt that features the likes of Brook Lopez, Ersan Ilyasova and second-year stand out D.J. Wilson. "Johnson can work to find a role on a contending team, and Maker will get an opportunity for playing time with Dwane Casey". The 7-foot-1 Maker, a 2016 lottery pick by the Bucks, is averaging 4.7 points and 2.7 rebounds.

For his career, the 22-year-old small forward has averaged 7.0 points through four seasons.

Milwaukee will host the Washington Wizards tonight, February 6, while the Pistons prepare for the second game of a home & home against the Knicks in Detroit on Friday night.

Stanley Johnson came to Detroit in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft as the #8 pick, and we all saw how badly SVG placed him on the court plus, never really developed as we fans expected, even when he gave us a sweet defensive match-up against LeBron James in the 2016 Playoffs.

Milwaukee's roster now stands at 16 players.
