The Chicago Bulls have pulled off a second deal before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, according to ESPN.

Shortly after it was reported that the Bulls had landed star center Nikola Vucevic in a multi-player deal with the Orlando Magic, the Bulls swung another four-player deal with the Washington Wizards.

Chicago will send center Daniel Gafford and forward Chandler Hutchison to the Wizards in exchange for Troy Brown Jr. and Moritz Wagner.

Gafford, 22, was a second-round pick by Chicago in 2019. He is averaging 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 31 games (11 starts) this season.

The 24-year-old Hutchison, who the Bulls selected 22nd overall a year earlier, averaged 1.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in seven games off the bench.

Wagner, 23, was the 25th overall pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018. The Wizards took Brown 10 spots earlier that same year.

Wagner started 13 of 25 games this season and averaged 7.1 points and 2.9 rebounds. Brown, 21, averaged 4.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 21 games off the bench.

The NBA trade deadline is 3 p.m. ET.
