    Bucks acquire Nikola Mirotic from Pelicans

    The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired Nikola Mirotic from the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Jason Smith, Stanley Johnson and four second-round picks, the teams announced Thursday.
    The Pelicans will receive second-round picks from the Bucks in 2019 (via Denver), 2020 (two, via Washington and Milwaukee) and 2021 (via Washington).

    Mirotic, who is making $12.5 million this season, will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. In 32 games this season, he is averaging career highs in points (16.7) and rebounds (8.3). He's also making 2.7 3-pointers per game, tied for ninth in the NBA.
    Johnson, 22, is averaging 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in his fourth NBA season. He was the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft.

    A first-round pick in 2007, the 32-year-old Smith is averaging 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds this season.
