  • Nikola Mitotic

Anthony Davis's impending trade isn't really going anywhere, with the Pelicans not ready to give into the "stupendous offer" given by the Lakers.

Nikola Mirotic #3 of the New Orleans Pelicans looks on against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Smoothie King Center on January 09, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Milwaukee will snag the valuable stretch-4 for New Orleans, the Pistons will still receive Maker.

As Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe of ESPN report, the New Orleans Pelicans are trading Nikola Mirotic to Milwaukee Bucks, in exchange for Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson.

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 excerpts of her speech, Abrams will argue that all Americans should have economic opportunity and voting access. Abrams spoke about how her family knew that opportunity is possible in the nation, but not guaranteed.

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. He was the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft.

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. The trade will also include four second-round picks, according to the New York Times.

Let's grade the trade for all three teams.
