Smith, 30, spent the last three seasons with the Pistons and is heading into his tenth NBA season. He has career averages of 7.4 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.4 rebounds per game. The Wizards needed a playmaking guard with John Wall set to miss most, if not all, the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury
Satoransky spent the last three seasons with Washington after the Wizards drafted him in 2012. The Czech guard will now reunite with fellow ex-Wizard Otto Porter in Chicago.

First of all, thank you #DCFamily, my teammates, fans and all supporters for the last 3 years in the capital city. I appreciate it a lot ❤ But a new chapter is here and I am so excited and proud to be a part of #chicagobulls. Can't wait to be on a court at United Center!
