Pistons Finalizing Trade to Send Stanley Johnson to Bucks for Thon Maker

Report Bucks send Thon Maker to Pistons for Stanley Johnson

But there is action happening elsewhere, and Pelicans are involved in it, as they have made a decision to send Nikola Mirotic to the Milwaukee Bucks. 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.

Thon Maker #7 of the Milwaukee Bucks looks on prior to the game against the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena on December 22, 2018 in Miami, Florida. He played in six games for the Bucks this year, totaling 13 points. The Montenegro native has averaged at least 10.0 points per game in each of his five seasons and earned All-Rookie honors following his rookie season in 2014-15.

There, new Pistons senior adviser Ed Stefanski left with two second-round players, Bruce Brown and Khyri Thomas, who may have seemed to some to be mirror images of one another. He then moved to Canada where he played at Athlete Institute Academy in Mono, Ontario and was named the 2016 League MVP of the Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association.

The Pistons also reportedly traded Reggie Bullock to the Lakers last night for Svi Mykhailiuk and a 2021 second round draft pick. In 267 career games, he's averaged 7.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steals. The 6-foot-10 forward said he would prefer to land with a team that could give him a shot to start, and that could very well be the case in Milwaukee, giving them the floor stretch they have sought out throughout the season.

"All three players bring high character to our locker room and we are excited about their fit alongside Joel, Ben, Jimmy and our entire roster".
