National Basketball Association trade deadline starts with Bucks getting Nikola Mirotic

First reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe, the Bucks will be acquiring veteran forward Nikola Mirotic in a three-team deal between the Bucks, the Detroit Pistons and the New Orleans Pelicans.

"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 Milwaukee Bucks are making their push. The Pelicans will also receive four second round picks form the Bucks with two of them coming from the Washington Wizards in 2020 and 2021.

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

Samantha has taken their father's side, claiming Meghan has been ignoring the 74-year-old and her behaviour is harming him. He told Good Morning Britain in December that his daughter had ignored multiple messages and daily texts from him.

It's a big deal for the Bucks as they try to create even more space for their star.

Mirotic has averaged 16.7 points and a career-best 6.8 rebounds per game this season while shooting 36 per cent from three-point range on just over seven attempts per game.

The Pelicans have been determined to deconstruct this team after Anthony Davis requested a trade, no longer seeing the point in keeping support pieces like Mirotic or Julius Randle, since trading their franchise player is only a matter of time.
