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.

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.

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.
