Bucks Send Two to Pelicans for Mirotic

"Mirotic made a major impact on the Pelicans push to the Western Conference semifinals upon arriving in New Orleans prior to last year's trade deadline".

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times the Pelicans will receive four draft selections in the deal.

Turns out, the Bucks were making a play all along for the Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic, and needed the Pistons involved to make things work.

Anthony Davis' dad doesn't want him in Boston
The Celtics have to wait to acquire the man of their dreams, Anthony Davis . Guy gives his heart and soul and they traded him. They're not interested in any of it.

The Bucks had been linked to Mirotic as well Wednesday afternoon, thanks to a report by Sporting News' Mitch Lawrence.

Mirotic has averaged 16.7 points and a career-best 6.8 rebounds per game this season while shooting 36 per cent from three-point range on just over seven attempts per game.

While there's still some time left between now and the deadline, the message is simple with this trade: the best team in the National Basketball Association has their sights set on this year to make some real waves come playoff time.
