The Brooklyn Nets have traded center Tyler Zeller to the Milwaukee Bucks for shooting guard Rashad Vaughn and a 2018 second-round draft pick, according to a report from ESPN.
The Bucks have been looking for help for their frontline for some time and Zeller should provide some relief in that area.
The Bucks will send the 2018 second-round pick to the Nets should it fall between 31 and 47 in the draft. Otherwise, Phoenix will receive the pick as part of the Eric Bledsoe trade. If the Bucks pick doesn’t convey in 2018, Milwaukee will send its unprotected second-round pick in 2020 to Brooklyn, league sources said.
Zeller, 28, is in his seventh NBA season. He is averaging 7.0 points and 4.6 rebounds, having played only limited minutes with the Nets. He has also spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics.
Vaughn, 21, was the 17th overall pick by the Bucks in 2015. They had been looking to move him since the start of the season. He is averaging just 2.7 points in 22 games.
