The Chicago Bulls recently acquired big man Mo Wagner from the Washington Wizards. Now, they have flipped him to the Boston Celtics for centers Daniel Theis and Luke Kornet.

This is a move that makes sense for both sides, albeit more so for the Celtics. The Celtics save roughly $3 million in cap space and get two comparable centers to Theis. Wagner is averaging 7.1 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game in 15 minutes per game. Kornet only averages 13 minutes per game, averaging 2.0 points and 1.2 rebounds.

Theis is 9.5 points per game and 5.2 rebounds per game in 24.5 minutes. Theis gives you more production on the boards and blocks, and Wagner has better per-36 numbers, so he will most likely see an uptick in stats if the Celtics give him more minutes.

The two main players in this trade are on one-year deals and will be unrestricted free agents after this season. Wagner could have had another year of team control, but the Wizards declined his team option for 2021-22. Combined with the trade with the Wizards, the Bulls have now added Troy Brown Jr., Daniel Theis along with the blockbuster for Nikola Vucevic to start off the day, the Bulls will roll out a very different looking team on Saturday when they play the San Antonio Spurs.

Bulls did not get Kornet. They traded him to Boston.
