Wizards acquire Marvin Bagley III from Pistons in four-player trade

The Pistons traded forward/center Marvin Bagley III and forward Isaiah Livers to the Wizards for big men Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Marvin Bagley III

Washington also received two second-rounders in the deal.

Bagley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, has not lived up to the hype. For the Pistons, moving him means moving his $12.5 million salary, and that’s a bonus. That’s probably why the Pistons threw in the two seconds (2025 and ’26, per Woj).

Gallinari ($6.8 million), Muscala ($3.5 million) and Livers ($1.8 million) are all on expiring contracts, a valuable trade tool in today’s NBA. So all stand a chance to be moved again.

There are probably more deals on the way for both teams before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. They’re both at the bottom of the standings and expected to reshape the rosters.
