The Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards have finalized a trade that will send fourth-year forward Rui Hachimura to Los Angeles in exchange for Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks (in 2023, 2028 and 2029).

Hachimura was the ninth-overall pick out of Gonzaga in the 2019 NBA draft. He played a ton in his first two seasons, starting 105 total games, but in that number fell down a cliff during the 2021-2022 season. He started just 13 games that season, appearing in 42 total. In the current season, he's appeared in 30 and started zero games.
