Although the trade might not jump out on paper, it gives Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty another viable option in the frontcourt as the team looks to improve on the glass. Zeller provides the Bucks valuable playoff experience as his previous two stops were with Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.
The 6-6 Vaughn, who was the No. 17 overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft, was included in the deal largely for salary-cap purposes.
He was named Mr. Basketball in IN following the 2008 season. Let's assume the minutes go up for Zeller moving forward.
He earned ACC Player of the Year honors during the 2012 season.
Vaughn appeared in just 22 games for the Bucks this season, after appearing in 70 as a rookie and 41 during the 2016-17 campaign. According to a report from ESPN, he's headed to Milwaukee.
The Brooklyn Nets have traded 7-foot center Tyler Zeller to Milwaukee for guard Rashad Vaughn and a second-round pick.
Tyler is the brother of Charlotte Hornets big man Cody Zeller and former Phoenix Suns center Luke Zeller, along with being the nephew of Al Eberhard, who played four seasons with the Pistons in the 1970s. He (Zeller) started 33 games and played an average of 16.7 minutes per contest.
Dellavedova has appeared in 37 games and is averaging 4.4 points and 3.8 assists while shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc.
