Milwaukee Bucks: Grades and reactions for the Stanley Johnson trade (read here): I then took a deeper dive into the deal, offering up a detailed look at what Johnson will bring, what the Bucks gave up in Maker, and more.

Johnson was reportedly traded to Milwaukee yesterday for Thon Baker, and now will come to New Orleans to join the Pelicans. Maker has shown that he can be a viable rotation player at times this season, but he's still only 21 years old. In last year's first-round playoff loss to Boston, Maker had 14 points, five rebounds and five blocks in a Game 3 win and eight points and five blocks in a Game 4 victory. Johnson was the eighth overall pick in the 2015 draft. Head coach Mike Budenholzer hadn't played him in a game since, making it clear he was unhappy with his young player.

The Bucks lose depth in their frontcourt and will probably try to find a way to replace Maker.

The Bucks are trying to get more shooting around superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rodney Hood would have helped them in that aspect. He is averaging 12.1 points per game and hitting 38.8 percent of his 3-point attempts this season for the Pistons. Maker was not happy with his situation in Milwaukee, as they've risen to the best record in the National Basketball Association right now, and he's got an opportunity in front of him.

Maker is in his third season with the Bucks.
