The Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards have completed a three-team trade involving seven players.
The full details of the trade:
- Bulls receive Celtics’ Daniel Theis, Javonte Green, Wizards’ Troy Brown Jr., $1.3 million in cash from the Celtics and $250K in cash from the Wizards
- Celtics receive Bulls’ Luke Kornet, Wizards’ Moe Wagner
- Wizards receive Bulls’ Daniel Gafford, Chandler Hutchison
The Celtics were added into the previously-reported deal between the Bulls and Wizards that originally saw the teams trade Gafford and Hutchison for Brown and Wagner, respectively.
With Theis, the Bulls get a solid backup center to Nikola Vucevic who they acquired from the Orlando Magic in a blockbuster deal.
Theis, 28, is averaging 9.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 block per game in 24.5 minutes per game.
The Celtics are high on big man Robert Williams, 23, who is averaging 7.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.7 blocks per game in 17.2 minutes per game.
He will likely now have a path to more minutes without Theis.
