Milwaukee Acquires Nikola Mirotic From Pelicans In Three Team Trade


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.
