The Wizards acquired Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga, and Jemmario Jones, as well as a 2022 second-round pick from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of the blockbuster Anthony Davis trade, according to NBC Sports Washington's Chase Hughes.
The news was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Wizards will send $1.1 million in cash considerations to the New Orleans Pelicans as part of the deal, the minimum for any three-team trade.
By agreeing to this trade, the Wizards have changed the outlook of NBA free agency for the rest of the league.
With this trade, along with Anthony Davis waiving his $4 million trade kicker, Los Angeles now has a slot to sign a max-contract free agent, as they have opened $32 million in cap space.

Now, the Lakers have the ability to go after free agents such as Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler and more, as they seek a third All-Star caliber player to pair with Davis and LeBron James.
The Wizards receive a project in Wagner, a player that will have the ability to grow and develop in Washington. Wagner was the Lakers first-round pick in 2018, and the Wizards had previous draft interest in him at the time, according to Wojnarowski.
