Feb 08, 03:08 AM

The Bucks made a big splash at the trade deadline Thursday, acquiring Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic, with Thon Maker heading to Detroit and Stanley Johnson and Jason Smith en route to New Orleans. Bucks beat reporter Matt Velazquez joins host JR Radcliffe and breaks it all down. How does it help the Bucks? Whose minutes will Mirotic get? Was this as big of a steal as it looks? Who else might the Bucks add to fill the final available roster spot? What other trades before Thursday's NBA trade deadline could impact Milwaukee and its chief competition?

Matt also chats about the NBA all-star draft Thursday, with Giannis making his picks for the big showcase (including teammate Khris Middleton). And what about that 50-point first quarter and 148-point showing against the Wizards on Wednesday?
