The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as we round up the reactions to the Bucks’ high profile addition of Nikola Mirotic ahead of this year’s trade deadline Thursday afternoon.
In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, the Bucks send a message of intent with their acquisition of Nikola Mirotic, superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo forms his team for this year All-Star Game with Thursday night’s All-Star Draft, and much more.
While their Eastern Conference foes like the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors all got richer ahead of this year’s trade deadline, respectively, the Bucks got an equally noteworthy reinforcement in Mirotic Thursday afternoon. In doing so, the Bucks have fortified an already deep roster and a player that fits their “let it fly” philosophy to a capital T (with an “itch” to add some flair at the end of it).
