The former No. 2 overall pick heads to Detroit, while the defending champs add a veteran big man.

The Detroit Pistons, LA Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Sacramento Kings have reportedly agreed to a four-team deal involving seven players, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Detroit receives:
* Marvin Bagley III (via Sacramento)

LA receives:
* Rodney Hood (via Milwaukee)
* Semi Ojeleye (via Milwaukee)

Milwaukee receives:
* Serge Ibaka (via LA)
* Two future second-round picks
* Cash considerations

Sacramento receives:
* Donte DiVincenzo (via Milwaukee)
* Josh Jackson (via Detroit)
* Trey Lyles (via Detroit)

The Pistons land Bagley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-11 center has dealt with injuries and limited playing time to begin his NBA career. Over three-plus seasons in Sacramento, Bagley has career averages of 13.5 points and 7.4 rebounds.

In exchange for Bagley, the Kings add DiVincenzo. The fourth-year swingman started 66 games with the Bucks last season before an ankle injury derailed his 2020-21 campaign and sidelined him to begin this season. He’s averaging 7.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists over 17 games this season. The move comes two days after Sacramento added former All-Star forward Domantas Sabonis in a trade with Indiana.

Ibaka bolsters the defending champion Bucks’ frontline. The 32-year-old forward/center has Finals experience with the Raptors and Thunder. In 35 games with LA this season, Ibaka is averaging 6.6 points and 4.3 rebounds over 15.4 minutes. The Bucks (35-21) are currently No. 2 in the East standings.

The Clippers add more wing depth to their roster after adding Norman Powell and Robert Covington over the weekend. Hood and Ojeleye have both played sparingly with Milwaukee this season.

Sacramento also adds Lyles, who is in the midst of a career-best scoring year with an average of 10.4 points, and Jackson, who joins his fourth team in five seasons after being selected by Phoenix with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
