Theis arrived in Boston in 2017 as a role player and quickly emerged as a key part of the team's rotation. He started 37 of the 42 games he played for the Celtics this season. Theis is averaging a career-high 9.5 points per game, too.

His departure opens the door for third-year center Robert Williams to start and see a minutes increase, both of which should further his development. The Celtics also acquired big men Moritz Wagner and Luke Kornet in the three-team trade involving the Bulls and Wizards.
