Report Bucks send Thon Maker to Pistons for Stanley Johnson

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

According to Wojnarowski, the Pistons are also involved in the trade but their return is not immediately clear.

The New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to send Nikola Mirotic to the Milwaukee Bucks, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sources told ESPN in January that Maker, who is averaging 4.7 points and 2.7 rebounds while averaging 11.7 minutes in 35 games this season, had told Bucks management that he would prefer to be traded to a team that would provide a larger role. The Milwaukee Bucks made a decision to go all-in this season and make a play for Mirotic, who is averaging a career-high 16.7 points per game in the Big Easy this season. He played in six games for the Bucks this year, totaling 13 points.

Maker has been pushing for a trade from the Milwaukee Bucks despite the team holding the best record in the National Basketball Association. 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.

Speaking of Johnson, his former squad, the Detroit Pistons, will reportedly get in on the fun, sending second-round picks to New Orleans.
