Bucks acquire sharpshooting big man Nikola Mirotic in trade with Pelicans

Bucks acquire sharpshooting big man Nikola Mirotic in trade with Pelicans

He has played in 48 of Detroit's 53 games this season.

On the other hand Thon Maker arrives from league's leader Milwaukee Bucks, and we can say he wasn't really happy there.

ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth reached out to Giannis who reportedly said, "Thon is like my little brother, this one hurts more than any trade that happened that I've been a part of but this is the business we work in".

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.

Maker is 7-1 and was selected 10th overall by the Bucks in 2016. 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.

Obviously, the lesson of Andy is that the show can survive anybody's departure if need be but that's not our goal. AMC is now working on no less than three Walking Dead feature length films, which will star Andrew Lincoln .

The NBA trade deadline is just hours away and teams are working frantically to finalize any deals ahead of the 3:00 p.m. ET deadline.

He was the 76ers' main target, but they also get 221cm giant Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott from the LA side.

Johnson, 22, is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in his fourth National Basketball Association season with Detroit.

Johnson was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2015 draft by Detroit.

In 35 games this season, Maker is averaging 4.7 points on.440 shooting, 2.7 boards and 0.5 blocks a night. He is now averaging just over seven points and three rebounds per game and can become a free agent after this season.
