Wait, I didn't think Stanley Johnson could be aggregated with another player like this after just getting dealt to the Bucks??

New Orleans-Milwaukee trade will include Pistons and send multiple second-road picks to the Pelicans for Mirotic, league sources tell ESPN.

Wild that Milwaukee might be the scrappy deep East team that goes toe-to-toe with the Warriors this year. That's supposed to be us!

"Dominant MVP in his prime + solid role players and a good coach" is a tried and true formula.

Hard to beat that without a MVP type guy on your team, no matter how deep you are.


Of course, we have to wait and see how they do in the playoffs.

They don't have anybody on their team that really scares me other than Giannis, and his lack of shooting limits how dangerous he can be.

Lowe - Mirotic to Bucks.

TP For Stanley Johnson and Jason Smith according to Woj.

The bucks were over the cap when they received Johnson. He canít be aggregated with another salary. This canít be right
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

Houston trades James Ennis to the Sixers for 2021 2nd round pick swap rights.  Sixers release Malachai Richardson to free up a roster spot.

Middleton was plenty scary last year. I don't think he'll be quite that hot but then again he won't need to be with this level of help.

Man, Bucks are going to be really tough. Already a matchup nightmare for the Cs, adding Mirotic to the mix too. They can make it rain 3s.

They are the best team in the East right now and the team to beat.

Well, I had said before that the Bucks scared me more than any other team in the East.

Still hasn't changed.  Nice trade for the Bucks.

Considering the Rockets have been pretty desperate for 3 and D guys all season and are willing to give up on him, this is not a good endorsement for Ennis. i am actually pretty pleased to see the 76ers use a roster spot on him because I was worried they were going to get someone really good from buyouts and he is pretty meh (doubt they will cut him now and pay twice).
