Maker made his desire to be traded clear to management in January, and according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski Maker is now set to be on his way to the Detroit Pistons for forward Stanley Johnson.

But there is action happening elsewhere, and Pelicans are involved in it, as they have chose to send Nikola Mirotic to the Milwaukee Bucks.

"We thank Thon and Jason for their contributions to the Bucks and wish them well".

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.

His numbers after being picked 10th on the 2016 NBA Draft, are 4.7 points, 0.5 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game.

Thon Maker #7 of the Milwaukee Bucks looks on prior to the game against the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena on December 22, 2018 in Miami, Florida. The Australian has appeared in 35 of Milwaukee's 52 games so far this season, finding himself buried on the bench amongst a crowded and talented Bucks' frontcourt that features the likes of Brook Lopez, Ersan Ilyasova and second-year stand out D.J. Wilson.

While there's still some time left between now and the deadline, the message is simple with this trade: the best team in the National Basketball Association has their sights set on this year to make some real waves come playoff time.

This season, Johnson had been playing with the second unit.

Maker, 21, was a member of the World Select Team which participated in the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit and was also voted to the All American team at the 2014 NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp.

Smith was acquired by the Bucks from the Wizards in a three-team trade on December 7, 2018. Mirotic was the No. 23 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.
