The Milwaukee Bucks completed a trade deadline deal on Thursday to make them better both now and into the future (assuming they can re-sign Nikola Mirotic). The Dallas Mavericks made a move that gained headlines across the league in picking up Kristaps Porzingis, but while this deal is also aimed at the future, he won’t be playing this season, officially putting the Mavs in the tank race.
Milwaukee enters this game having yet to see what Mirotic in its system looks like, but all indications are that it’s going to be a brilliant fit.
So far this season, the Bucks are second in both three-pointers made and three-pointers attempted, behind only the triple-happy Houston Rockets. And yet, Milwaukee is just 12th in completion percentage.
Enter Mirotic, a stretch-4 who can spread the floor and is also shooting nearly 37 percent from deep. He’s the perfect player to put around Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Mirotic should get some of the best looks of his career in this system, and the Bucks get another weapon in their chase to win the wide-open Eastern Conference.
The Mavericks were among the busiest teams around the trade deadline this season. Most notably, DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews are out in favor of a non-playing Kristaps Porzingis, but Harrison Barnes is also out of Dallas. He was traded (mid-game) to the Sacramento Kings.
Simply put: The Mavs are shorthanded coming into this one. That means two things.
For starters, it’s going to be the Luka Doncic show. Although we’re not going to make a bold stats prediction for a single contest out of 82 games, Doncic is becoming a triple-double machine (because what can’t thins wunderkind do?) and there could be another big night in his future against the Bucks.
