The Boston Celtics made multiple moves during the trade deadline with hopes to improve their rotation ahead of the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Celtics have traded center Daniel Theis to the Chicago Bulls for Mo Wagner.

Details of the Celtics/Wizards/Bulls deal, per league sources:— Ryan McDonough (@McDNBA) March 25, 2021
Wizards get D. Gafford, C. Hutchinson
Celtics get L. Kornet, M. Wagner
Bulls get D. Theis, J. Green, T. Brown Jr. , $1.3m (from BOS) $250k (from WAS)
This was a three-way deal, considering the Washington Wizards were involved too.
Javonte Green also will go from the Celtics to the Bulls, and Luke Kornet will arrive to Boston from Chicago.
These moves would get the Celtics under the luxury tax line and open up a roster spot for a potential buyout market addition.
In 3.5 seasons with the Celtics, Daniel Theis averaged 7.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and shot 55.2% from the field. This year, he’s averaging a career-high 9.5 points in 24.5 minutes.
