Milwaukee Bucks: Grading the Stanley Johnson trade

Milwaukee Bucks: Grading the Stanley Johnson trade Milwaukee Bucks: Grading the Stanley Johnson trade

In exchange, New Orleans will receive the expiring contract of veteran big man Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson, who was traded to Milwaukee in exchange for Thon Maker on Wednesday.

This season, Mirotic is averaging 16.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists for New Orleans.

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

With the Pistons acquiring Maker, they're getting a player who reportedly wants to have more playing time, per an ESPN report from late January.

Johnson is joining the league's best defensive team, and in the Bucks' fast-paced offence he may be able to impact the game with his slashing ability. He has consistently brought positive value defensively, but he's hitting below 30 percent from beyond the arc for his career (29.2 percent) and sits below 29 percent for the second straight season right now (28.2 percent).

It will mean Maker misses out on a potentially deep play-off run as the Bucks are in the frame to win the eastern conference although they face stiff opposition from Toronto, Philadelphia and Boston.

His best season with the Pistons may well have come when he was a rookie. He averaged 4.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 166 games.

Maker has shown flashes of his huge skill this season with the limited opportunities given to him, but he needs regular court time if he is to fulfil his potential.

Milwaukee has as good a chance as any squad in the East of making it to the NBA Finals behind the MVP-caliber play of Giannis Antetokounmpo.

He is a free agent this offseason.
