Chicago Bulls Vs. Washington Wizards: Rashard Lewis To Make Wizards Debut Against Bulls

The Bulls handled the Washington Wizards handily in the Wizards' visit to the United Center on Nov. 13.

But it's a new-look Wizards team that the Bulls will face in Washington tonight, after their blockbuster three-way trade on Saturday that sent Washington's Gilbert Arenas and Phoenix's Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark to the Orlando Magic; in return, the Wizards got Rashard Lewis and the Suns got Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat and Mickael Pietrus.

Got all that? OK, the only player from that deal the Bulls will see tonight is Lewis, who will be making his Wizards debut. Meanwhile, the Bulls are fresh off their 45-point demolition of the 76ers last night, and are just making a quick detour to Washington before their Christmas morning meetup with the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

It'll also be a chance to renew acquaintances with former Bull Kirk Hinrich, who has two consecutive double-doubles. Also, Taj Gibson is expected to play tonight.

Tonight's game begins at 6 p.m. CST and will be on WCIU. If you are not among those who can get WCIU, the game is available nationally on NBA-TV.
