The Milwaukee Bucks were able to acquire Jae Crowder in a massive trade with the Brooklyn Nets. To complete the deal, the Bucks sent five second round draft picks to the Nets. A further development of the trade is that Milwaukee is also sending Jordan Nwora to the Indiana Pacers. Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news on social media.
Indiana is acquiring Bucks' Jordan Nwora and two second-rounders in this Nets/Bucks three-way deal, sources said.

As noted above, two of the five second round draft picks that the Bucks are sending in exchange for Crowder will go to Indiana.
Jordan Nwora with the Milwaukee Bucks
Jordan Nwora was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round (45th overall pick) of the 2020 NBA Draft. As a rookie, Nwora appeared in 30 games and averaged 5.7 points in 9.1 minutes per game. That year, he shot a blazing 45.3% from three, which is still the best mark of his career.
Last season, Nwora saw his role increase as he became a regular fixture in the Bucks’ lineup (often to the disappointment of fans). In 19.1 minutes per game, Nwora averaged 7.9 points and shot 40.3% from three.
So far this season, the third-year forward saw his role decrease. In 15.7 minutes per game, he is averaging 6.0 points and shooting 39.2% from three.
