A report says the Milwaukee Bucks are getting a small forward from Detroit in a trade, but giving up one of their young inside players.
Adrian Wojnarowski says that the Bucks will be getting Stanley Johnson on their roster, and trading Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons.
Johnson has averaged 7.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists this season in 48 games for Detroit, including seven starts. He is a four-year veteran.
Maker, in his third year, is averaging 4.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.5 blocks per contest. He has played in 35 games, averaging 11.7 minutes per contest.
Maker-for-Johnson is an ideal change-of-scenery deal for two young former lottery picks. Johnson can work to find a role on a contending team, and Maker will get an opportunity for playing time with Dwane Casey.
