  • Detroit Pistons agree to trade Stanley Johnson to Milwaukee Bucks for Thon Maker

As first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski, the New Orleans Pelicans are sending Nikola Mirotić to the Milwaukee Bucks for 2 players and multiple draft picks.

Johnson, 22, was Detroit's first-round draft pick (eighth overall) in 2015.

Due to the emergence of Brook Lopez and the NBA's transition to a "position-less" type of basketball, Maker's role has diminished significantly this season. He is averaging 12.1 points per game and hitting 38.8 percent of his 3-point attempts this season for the Pistons.

While the wide-held expectation was that Mirotic would be traded by the deadline, Milwaukee was a bit of a surprise destination. They have also both been something between letdowns and a busts, depending on which Pistons or Bucks fans you ask.

In Detroit, Maker could establish himself as a solid option off the bench behind Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond - especially with his ability to shoot the three. "We thank Thon and Jason for their contributions to the Bucks and wish them well". The Pistons' two biggest weaknesses as a team are their outside shooting and defense.

The Thon Maker experiment in Milwaukee has come to an end. By comparison, a lot of Pistons fans had already given up on the idea of Johnson making any significant improvement.

Both Harris and star Sixers guard Jimmy Butler, acquired from Minnesota earlier this season, are free agents this off-season while Simmons is in line for a contract extension in the near future.
