A person familiar with the situation says the Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to trade center Thon Maker to the Detroit Pistons for forward Stanley Johnson. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been publicly announced. Johnson and Maker are both recent lottery picks who have struggled to make a consistent impact. Now, they’ll both have a change of scenery. The Pistons took Johnson with the No. 8 pick in the 2015 draft. He’s averaged 7.5 points a game this season, playing mostly in a backup role. The 7-foot-1 Maker was the 10th pick in 2016. He started 34 games as a rookie in 2016-17 but has mostly come off the bench since then.
Major League Baseball and its players are discussing major changes, including a three-batter minimum before a pitching change except at the start of an inning, a single trade deadline set before the All-Star break and expanded rosters. The players’ union once again proposed adding the DH rule to the NL, but management considers that a labor issue to be discussed curing CBA negotiations in 2022. A limitation on mound visits – a rule implemented last year – could get even stricter, possibly limiting trips to the bump to four per game by 2020.
