Another Roster Move - Mirotic for essentially Maker, J. Smith, and 2nd round picks

Figured this deserved its own thread

They got Mirotic for Stanley Johnson, Jason Smith, and some second round picks. Mirotic is basically Ilyasova on steroids - at least on offense. 

Horst managed to turn Dellavadova, their first rounder (which will be about #28-30), John Henson, Thon Maker, and some second round picks into George Hill and Nikola Mirotic without giving up any high level assets. (I know Brogdon and Middleton were second round picks, but those picks are not going to make or break the Bucks and the 29th pick in this draft might as well be a second rounder. 

They also cleared the Delly, Henson, and Maker contracts and replaced them with two good rotation guys on expiring contracts worth about 30 million. This helps now and it helps in July when they have to resign guys.
