Bucks general manager Jon Horst has swung a trade deal for the second time in as many days. In a deal that involves the Pistons -- with whom he orchestrated the Thon Maker trade on Wednesday -- the Bucks have acquired forward Nikola Mirotic from the New Orleans Pelicans for Stanley Johnson, Jason Smith and four, second-round draft picks.


Mirotic averaged 16.7 points per game with the Pelicans this season. He is also averaging career highs in three-point attempts (7.2) and rebounds (8.3) per game.
