The Boston Celtics traded veteran center Daniel Theis to the Chicago Bulls as a salary dump and quietly returned two unknown big men in Mo Wagner and Luke Kornet.

At least for now, it’s unknown if Kornet will stick with the team after a hot start for Boston, hitting two 3-pointers against the Oklahoma City Thunder that separated the Celtics late in Saturday’s 111 – 94 road win. The two new arrivals will be insurance if Boston falls short up front, but Yahoo Sports’ Keith Smith tells the CLNS podcast “Celtics Beat” there’s some potential left with Wagner despite bad runs with the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Lakers early in his career.

Get the lowdown on how the two bigs figure into the Celtics’ plans moving forward, and what they may have to offer a younger, taller Boston roster.
