In the 2019 draft, the Chicago Bulls picked point guard Coby White to be their playmaker of the future. As he learns the NBA trade, it seems they might be turning the keys to the offense over to a more tested veteran for the time being.
Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls are acquiring former Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky via a sign-and-trade deal with Washington. The Bulls are expecting Satoransky to sign a three-year deal. The move was also confirmed by David Aldridge of The Athletic, who notes the Wizards are meanwhile talking with Isaiah Thomas.

Satoransky was drafted by the Wizards with the No. 32 pick in the 2012 draft and made his NBA debut in the 2016-17 season. He spent his entire career with the Wizards, averaging 6.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. He had a breakout season in 2018-19, averaging 8.9 ppg, 3.5 rpg and 5.0 apg as he took on a bigger role, starting 54 games as star guard John Wall was lost for the season in February.
