While much of the NBA is in Las Vegas taking in Summer League, three teams decided to further tinker with their rosters on Saturday. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported a three-team trade that puts Timofey Mozgov on the move for the second time this summer as part of a deal between the Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets.

Wojnarowski reported that Mozgov is on the move again, headed from Charlotte to Orlando, while Bismack Biyombo will return to Charlotte and Julyan Stone is now a member of the Bulls.

Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania reported shortly after news of the trade broke that Chicago would move Jerian Grant to the Magic as part of the deal, which Wojnarowski also confirmed shortly thereafter. Wojnarowski also confirmed that the teams agreed to the deal in principle.

Mozogv, of course, was traded to the Magic in June from Brooklyn, making it the third team he’s been with this summer. Mozgov was the return as part of the Dwight Howard trade, though Howard was bought out by the Nets and Mozgov and his $16 million for the next two seasons didn’t last very long in Charlotte.

These’s no telling whether any of these players will be on the move again, or even if they’ll play for those teams this fall. We’ve still got a long way to go before the summer’s over.
