The Bucks Have Reportedly Traded For Pelicans Forward Nikola Mirotic

The Bucks Have Reportedly Traded For Pelicans Forward Nikola Mirotic

It was reported on Wednesday that Detroit traded Johnson to Milwaukee for Thon Maker, but neither team ever formally announced the deal - despite the news making the rounds on Twitter.

In return, the Bucks will reportedly send Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson to New Orleans.

Another significant component to this move is the draft compensation that will be going the Pelicans' way.

"We are thrilled to add such a talented player in Nikola Mirotic to our roster", said Bucks General Manager Jon Horst.

"Mirotic made a major impact on the Pelicans push to the Western Conference semifinals upon arriving in New Orleans prior to last year's trade deadline". The Bucks will also be sending the Pelicans four second-round picks.

The Portland Trail Blazers were rumored to have interest in Mirotic as of Wednesday. 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. In order to sort out all the details of this revised deal, here are the latest NBA Trade Grades.
