Milwaukee Bucks acquire Nikola Mirotic from New Orleans Pelicans

Nikola Mirotic

Turns out, the Bucks were making a play all along for the Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic, and needed the Pistons involved to make things work. Milwaukee will snag the valuable stretch-4 for New Orleans, the Pistons will still receive Maker.

Since Wednesday's deal was never made official, the Pelicans were able to jump in and alter the trade a bit, giving Milwaukee the ultimate prize but adding a plethora of picks to their cupboard of assets for the inevitable rebuild.

Nikola Mirotic is off the market.

Wojnarowski and Marc Stein of the New York Times also report the deal will also include the Pistons, with the Pelicans netting multiple second-round picks. Originally drafted by the Pistons with the eighth overall pick in 2015, Johnson's entry-level contract expires in 2020.
