SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs received Chandler Hutchison and a 2022 second-round pick in a trade involving five teams that was reported on Wednesday afternoon.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that a sign-and-trade of Spencer Dinwiddie from the Brooklyn Nets to the Washington Wizards would send Hutchison and the pick to San Antonio, and that the trade would be expanded to include the Indiana Pacers and the Los Angeles Lakers, and their deals with Washington on draft night.
According to ESPN's Bobby Marks, the Wizards offloaded Hutchison in order to avoid the luxury tax. The 24-year-old Hutchison is a 6'6" small forward who averaged about 8 points and 4 rebounds in 2019-20, which was his best NBA season. He was taken with pick number 22 in the 2018 draft.
Marks sent out details of the mega trade, which won't be finalized until August 6, and it appears that the Spurs are not sending any players out in the deal. That puts the roster at 18 players, adding fuel to the idea that the Spurs are not done making trades.
