The Mavericks also reportedly included a 2024 first-round pick from the Oklahoma City Thunder as a part of the trade.
The Mavericks acquired the pick by agreeing to a first-round pick swap with the Thunder in 2028.
Gafford has averaged 10.9 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game for the Wizards this season.
The 6'10" 25-year-old is expected to help the Mavericks with defense and rebounding, which have both struggled this season.
The Mavericks are currently 28-23, good for the 8th seed in the West.
