The Pelicans have officially launched their rebuild, sending one of their cornerstone players, Nikola Mirotic, to the Bucks for several second-round picks, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal includes Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson, but also the Pistons, who will help in sending a number of second-round picks to New Orleans.

With Mirotic, the Bucks take another step towards cementing a long post-season run. As a knockdown shooting big man, he’ll have plenty of value to a team that could use some additional shooting.
