Detroit Pistons Acquire Thon Maker as Part of Three-Team Deal

Piston swingman Stanley Johnson is reportedly headed to the Bucks in a swap of two former lottery picks

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.

A report says the Milwaukee Bucks will be getting a key member of the New Orleans Pelicans. Milwaukee will snag the valuable stretch-4 for New Orleans, the Pistons will still receive Maker.

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.

Nikola Mirotic is off the market.

The Pelicans are also receiving several draft picks in the the deal, according to Tim Bontemps, but none are coming from the Pistons.

Milwaukee has as good a chance as any squad in the East of making it to the NBA Finals behind the MVP-caliber play of Giannis Antetokounmpo. With the trade deadline just hours away, the Bucks have decided to make a move that they believe will help them reach this lofty goal.
