The Chicago Bulls have acquired guard Tomas Satoransky on a three-year deal via a sign-and-trade with the Washington Wizards, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The 27-year-old will reportedly receive $30 million over the three years.
Washington improved the stock of a trio of future second-round picks in the trade, sources told Wojnarowski. The Wizards will receive the higher selection between the Bulls' and Memphis Grizzlies' 2020 second-round pick, and hold the right to swap the Los Angeles Lakers' 2022 second-round pick for the higher slot between the Bulls' and Detroit Pistons' second-round selections in that year's draft. Additionally, the protections previously imposed on the 2023 second-rounder that Washington received from Chicago as part of last season's Jabari Parker deal have been removed.
Satoransky started 54 of 80 games last season due to John Wall's year-long struggles with injury. Since emerging as a rotation player two seasons ago, the Czech Republic native has averaged 8.1 points on strong shooting splits - 50.1 percent from the field overall and 42.2 percent on 3-pointers - with 4.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.
He joins a backcourt rotation featuring incumbent starters Zach LaVine and Kris Dunn plus 2019 No. 7 pick Coby White out of North Carolina. Guards Denzel Valentine, Antonio Blakeney, Shaquille Harrison, and Walt Lemon Jr. also remain under contract, while 32-game starter Ryan Arcidiacono is a restricted free agent.
