Two former Boston big men on the move from Washington to Detroit

Former Boston Celtics big men Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala are on the move again, headed to join the Detroit Pistons according to new reporting from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Per Woj, the Pistons “have traded forwards Marvin Bagley III and Isaiah Livers and two future second-round draft picks” to the Washington Wizards.

The move was made on Detroit’s end because that franchise has “been determined to add some veteran shooting to the roster, and Gallinari and Muscala can help Detroit spread the floor in limited roles this season,” writes the ESPN senior reporter. The pair of bigs were dealt from Boston to the Wizards in the deal that brought star center Kristaps Porzingis to the team this past offseason.

Muscala had joined Boston at the prior trade deadline, a backup center option who never quite fit into what the Celtics were doing. Gallinari had signed with Boston in the 2022 NBA offseason, but tore his ACL in international play that summer and never actually suited up for the Celtics.
