Bucks to get Mirotic from Pelicans for two players

Bucks to get Mirotic from Pelicans for two players

The trade will also include four second-round picks, according to the New York Times.

Australian big man Thon Maker is headed to the Detroit Pistons and Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers have added elite Los Angeles Clippers forward Tobias Harris to put themselves in position to claim the National Basketball Association title.

Milwaukee sent center Thon Maker to Detroit in exchange for the 22-year-old forward, according to ESPN.

Maker, 21, was drafted 10th overall by the Bucks in the 2016 NBA Draft but he has not lived up to the hype. Hood is a career 36.8 percent shooter from the 3-point line and is shooting 36.2 percent from deep this season.

Terry Crews Defends Liam Neeson After Controversial Comments
I'm a fairly intelligent guy and that's why it kind of shocked me when it came down to Earth after having these terrible feelings. It was a man? He said: "I had never felt this feeling before, which was a primal urge to lash out". "I did seek help".

Often a source of energy on the court when he did play, Maker's standout performance this year was when he had 15 points and five rebounds in a home win against Utah on January 7. Mirotic was the No. 23 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Even as they try to make a push toward a playoff spot, the Pistons should give themselves a solid a look at Maker before he can sign a rookie contract extension this offseason. He has consistently brought positive value defensively, but he's hitting below 30 percent from beyond the arc for his career (29.2 percent) and sits below 29 percent for the second straight season right now (28.2 percent).

Johnson is joining the league's best defensive team, and in the Bucks' fast-paced offence he may be able to impact the game with his slashing ability.

Maker is averaging 11.7 minutes per game, but has been in and out of the Bucks' lineup this season.

Smith was acquired by the Bucks from the Wizards in a three-team trade on December 7, 2018.
