    Love this trade. Mirotic is a legit 3 point sniper averaging 16.7 pts/game...actual NBA games! He even had a 36 point night in October.

    This video sums up how I feel!

    Just heard one detail, that now makes it look like much less of a lopsided trade. Bucks might have given up 4 future 2nd round picks in the deal?

    So if I have this correctly, the deal ends up costing the Bucks:
    • Thon Maker (traded yesterday for Stanley Johnson)
    • Jason Smith (and Stanley Johnson)
    • 4 -2nd Rd Picks: 2019 (via Denver), two in 2020 (via Washington and Milwaukee) and 2021 (via Washington).
    Coming out of that with Mirotic is a win for the Bucks.

    So is Stanley Johnson still with the Bucks? I'm confused as I am seeing other reports that he was not traded and still with the bucks?

    No he is gone.

    4 - 2nd round picks is less of an issue in the NBA. Tough for a 2nd round pick to make this roster.
