The Wizards have made the trade sending Rui Hachimura to the Lakers official. In return they got Kendrick Nunn and three second round picks. More soon @NBCSWashington6:38 PM

Sounds like Rui Hachimura will be able to play on Wednesday against the Spurs *at the earliest* as he goes through travel to LA, a physical and other logistics of changing teams. – 6:35 PM

What the Lakers’ acquisition of Rui Hachimura means for Los Angeles’ offseason accounting, Washington’s plans for Kyle Kuzma, and how it may set the table for the rest of a quiet trade market to this point.

I’m guessing that the Wizards brought Kendrick Nunn into the traded player exception they had from the Montrezl Harrell deal last trade deadline.
If so, Washington created a new TPE for Rui Hachimura of $6,263,188. – 6:21 PM

Including Rui Hachimura here was absolutely, definitely, totally the impetus for the Lakers’ trade a couple hours later.

Days after LeBron James lamented the Lakers’ lack of size, the front office makes a trade for Rui Hachimura, a former top-10 pick who saw his role sapped this season and had recently said he wanted to be somewhere where he is appreciated: ocregister.com/2023/01/23/lak…2:00 PM

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
One of the reasons the Lakers traded for Russell Westbrook was the season he had in Washington. Instead of parting ways with Westbrook, the Lakers surrounded him with three of his former Wizards teammates — Rui Hachimura, Troy Brown Jr. and Thomas Bryant — off the bench. – 1:30 PM
David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Early headline on the Wizards trading Rui Hachimura to the Lakers for Kendrick Nunn and three future second-round picks, in @TheAthletic:
theathletic.com/4118424/2023/0…1:29 PM
Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers
Working in LA’s favor (and Hachimura’s, too): W/ the Lakers, he doesn’t need to be “9th pick in the Draft” good. He needs to be “gave up 3 2nds good,” and then in theory “reasonable $ in an extension good.” Context is really important. Can come here and just play a role. BK – 1:28 PM

Can confirm that Lakers have acquired Rui Hachimura from Wizards for Kendrick Nunn and 3 second round picks, sources said. Lakers need wing players with size, source said – 1:16 PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Rui Hachimura has made 39.3% of his catch-and-shoot 3s since his 2nd year. By season:
2022-23: 36.6%
2021-22: 46.6%
2020-21: 34.1%
Streaky on a low volume of 2.6 per game (359 total shots), per @SecondSpectrum. But he’s solid and should get plenty of open looks with the Lakers. – 1:15 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Lakers got Rui Hachimura for a surprisingly low price, and that may mean Kyle Kuzma is off the table now. Truly weird stuff from the Wizards unless they’re convinced Kuz will re-sign, and he sounded pretty ready to test UFA last we heard… – 1:09 PM
Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
Sources: Lakers are sending the 2023 Chicago second-rounder, their own 2029 second-rounder and the Wizards/Lakers less favorable second-rounder in 2028 in the Kendrick Nunn-for-Rui Hachimura trade. – 1:07 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Finalized deal: Rui Hachimura for Kendrick Nunn, 2023 second via Chicago, 2029 LA second and and less favorable of 2028 Washington/LA seconds, sources tell ESPN. – 1:07 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Rui Hachimura’s cap hold (per spotrac) is around $18.8 million. If the Lakers plan to keep him long-term, they basically can’t create real cap space.
Plenty can change between now and July, but if the Lakers do operate above the cap, I’d expect Russell Westbrook back next year. – 1:06 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk

Wizards save a little more than $1 million on the 2022-23 payroll swapping Rui Hachimura for Kendrick Nunn – 1:00 PM
Yossi Gozlan @YossiGozlan
If the Lakers re-sign Hachimura that would significantly cut into their $30M cap space projection for this coming offseason.
Last week I wrote about why I think the Lakers should trade for role players now instead of taking the cap space route.

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The Wizards’ increasing determination to trade Rui Hachimura, who is now headed to the Lakers, is a reflection of their increasing confidence in being able to re-sign Kyle Kuzma this summer, league sources.

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
In the latest installment of second round picks are meaningless, the Lakers just traded three of them for Rui Hachimura. – 12:45 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Hachimura and the Wizards were unable to agree on a rookie extension prior to the season and trade became more likely as Kyle Kuzma solidified himself as a priority to sign to a long-term deal in the Wizards front court. – 12:44 PM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
As of Friday, the Lakers offered Kendrick Nunn and two second-round picks to Washington for Rui Hachimura, sources said. Wizards were holding out for first-round value for their former lottery selection. A third second-rounder gets it done on Monday. – 12:43 PM

Wes Unseld, Jr., says Rui Hachimura was excused from practice today for personal reasons. No reason to doubt that, but personal reasons can cover a lot of things, of course. – 12:31 PM

Rui Hachimura missed today’s Wizards practice due to personal reasons, per Wes Unseld Jr. – 12:31 PM
