Timberwolves trade former Sixers guard Shake Milton to Pistons

It’s trade deadline week in the NBA and now is the time for teams to make moves in order to gear up for the playoff run. Thursday at 3 p.m. EST will be the final buzzer for teams in the league to make deals around the league.

The Minnesota Timberwolves pulled the trigger on a deal on Wednesday when they sent former Philadelphia 76ers guard Shake Milton to the Detroit Pistons in a deal that brought in Monte Morris. After five seasons with the Sixers, Milton signed a 2-year deal with the Timberwolves in the offseason.

In 38 games for Minnesota, Milton averaged 4.7 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. He will now look to get back to playing consistently for the Pistons who have the worst record in the NBA at 6-43.

In five seasons with the Sixers, Milton averaged 9.3 points, 2.7 assists, and 2.4 rebounds. He fell out of favor with the Timberwolves and will look to revive his career a bit with the Pistons.
