The Bulls have acquired Tomas Satoransky from the Wizards in a sign-and-trade agreement.
Chicago sent a 2020 second-round pick — which will be the higher of either the Bulls' or the Grizzlies' selections — to Washington for the point guard and also agreed to the rights to swap 2022 second-round picks and remove the protection on a 2023 second-round pick owed to the Wizards after a previous trade.
Satoransky signed a three-year deal worth $30 million with the Bulls, according to ESPN.
"We wish Tomas and his family the very best as he starts a new chapter in his career and we're pleased to acquire draft picks that will allow us to continue to build for the future," said Wizards senior vice-president of basketball operations Tommy Sheppard.
