The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired Jrue Holiday from the New Orleans Pelicans and Bogdan Bogdanovic from the Sacramento Kings via trade late Monday night.

The first trade of the night was for the Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday. Eric Bledsoe, George Hill and three first round draft picks were sent to New Orleans for the 30-year-old Holiday. In the 2019-20 season, Holiday averaged 19.1 points, 6.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game.

Shortly after the announcement of the Holiday deal, Bucks GM Jon Horst made another move to shake up the roster. The Bucks send Donte DiVincenzo, DJ Wilson and Ersan Illyasova to the Sacramento Kings in a sign-and-trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic.

The 28 year-old Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game for the Kings last season. He managed to do so while shooting 44% from the floor and 37.2 % from behind the 3-point line.
