Also, by jettisoning both Johnson and Smith, the Bucks open up a spot on their 15-man roster, which gives them an opening to peruse the buyout market throughout the rest of the month.

First reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe, the Bucks will be acquiring veteran forward Nikola Mirotic in a three-team deal between the Bucks, the Detroit Pistons and the New Orleans Pelicans.

The New Orleans Pelicans have finally done it, shipping a player in their frontcourt to another team hours before the NBA's trade deadline. According to sources, the Pelicans will receive second-round picks from the Bucks in 2019 (via Denver), two in 2020 (via Washington and Milwaukee) and 2021 (via Washington).

Meanwhile, the Pelicans will add Jason Smith and four second round picks from Milwaukee, along with Johnson from Detroit.

Mia and Kristoff St John later filed a civil lawsuit against the psychiatric facility claiming negligence in their son's death. In September, he shared a photo of the engagement ring on his Instagram account with the photo caption "She said yes".

Maker, 7-1, 221, averaged 4.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in 35 games with the Bucks this season.

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.

Mirotic has, however, missed 21 games this season due to injury. In order to sort out all the details of this revised deal, here are the latest NBA Trade Grades.
