Milwaukee Bucks have satisfied Thon Makers trade request and got him out of town before the Trade Deadline. The Bucks have shipped him to Detroit and in return the Pistons are sending back athletic wing and solid defender Stanley Johnson. Johnson was scoring 7.5 ppg and grabbing 3.6 rpg in 20 mins of action per night.
Stanley was drafted 8th overall out of Arizona in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons. Johnson is in the last year of his rookie deal and scheduled to become a Restricted Free Agent at seasons end. Thon Maker leaves Milwaukee after just 2 and a half seasons and hopes to gain quality mins in Detroit to establish himself in the league.
