Last night the Pelicans power forward, Nikola Mirotic, tweeted out something vague:

He was then held out of the game. Now we know why. It appears that Nikola Mirotic is headed to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks appear to be pushing all their chips to the center of the table to be an NBA Finals team.

In addition, the Pelicans will be receiving FOUR 2nd round draft picks. Quite the haul for the soon to be rebuilding New Orleans Pelicans. Meanwhile, Utah is still hot on the heels of Mike Conley.
