The Milwaukee Bucks are making their push.

In exchange, New Orleans will receive the expiring contract of veteran big man Jason Smith and Stanley Johnson, who was traded to Milwaukee in exchange for Thon Maker on Wednesday.

Another significant component to this move is the draft compensation that will be going the Pelicans' way.

A report says the Milwaukee Bucks will be getting a key member of the New Orleans Pelicans. Nikola Mirotic went to the Bucks for a playoff run, and four second-round picks ended up in the laps of Dell Demps and the Pelicans.

The Portland Trail Blazers were rumored to have interest in Mirotic as of Wednesday.

After all, it looks like the Montenegrin/Spanish forward is joining Giannis Antetokounmpo in the Bucks, while the trade will also include Pistons and send multiple second-road picks to the Pelicans for Mirotic, per the same reports.

Mirotic is averaging 16.7 points-per-game and shoots 37 percent from three-point land, fitting right into Mike Budenholzer's system.

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.
