Bulls send Daniel Gafford, Chandler Hutchison to Wizards in pre-deadline trade: reporton March 25, 2021 at 5:04 pm

The Bulls kept their trade deadline dealings going Thursday by sending forward Chandler Hutchison and big man Daniel Gafford to the Wizards in exchange for guard Troy Brown and center Mo Wagner, ESPN reports.

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 Brown, the 15th overall pick in 2018, who averaged 10.4 points per game for the Wizards last season. He’s struggled this year, however, averaging just 4.3 points per game on 37% shooting.
