The Milwaukee Bucks continued their flurry of moves Monday, agreeing to acquire guard Bogdan Bogdanovic in a sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sacramento receives Donte DiVincenzo, Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson in return. Forward Justin James also heads to Milwaukee in the deal.

Bogdanovic posted his third consecutive solid season with the Kings in 2019-20, averaging 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 61 games. The 28-year-old Serbian is a reliable three-point shooter, converting at a 37.4 per cent clip over his NBA career.

James was the Kings' second-round pick in 2019. He appeared in 36 games for Sacramento last season, but received limited minutes.

DiVincenzo, Milwaukee's first-round pick in 2018, had a productive sophomore campaign in 2019-20. The Villanova product averaged better than nine points per game and drew 24 starts in 66 games for the Eastern Conference juggernauts.

Ilyasova has 12 years of NBA experience to his name, averaging 10.3 points and 5.7 rebounds over his career. Wilson was a first-round selection of the Bucks in 2017, but has yet to break out at the NBA level.

Earlier Monday, the Bucks pulled off a blockbuster with the New Orleans Pelicans, acquiring star guard Jrue Holiday in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, George Hill and draft picks.
