The Bulls kept their trade deadline dealings going Thursday by sending forward Chandler Hutchison and big man Daniel Gafford to the Wizards, ESPN reports.

What was originally a two-team swap between the Bulls and Wizards emerged as a three-teamer with the Celtics jumping in before the trade deadline, according to NBC Sports Chicago.

At the core of the deal, the Bulls will reportedly walk away with guard Troy Brown and big man Daniel Theis while the Wizards get Hutchison and Gafford and the Celtics receive Mo Wagner and Luke Kornet,

It’s the second deal of the day for President of Basketball Operations Arturas Karnisovas after the team agreed to send a big haul including Wendell Carter Jr. to the Magic for two-time All-Star Nikola Vucevic.

Hutchison, the 22nd overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, missed time this season while dealing with a lower leg injury. He’s also repeatedly not played as a coach’s decision, failing to earn a spot in Billy Donovan’s rotation. In 79 games with the Bulls over three seasons, Hutchison averaged 5.8 points and four rebounds per game.

Gafford, a 2019 second-round pick, has averaged 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in his second NBA season.

The Bulls will hope to get more from Theis, a talented center, and Brown, the 15th overall pick in 2018, who averaged 10.4 points per game for the Wizards last season.
