There hasn't been a ton of trades in the NBA this offseason, but we have one being finalized tonight, according to multiple reports. A three-team trade is reportedly on the verge of being finalized.

According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski and Yahoo! Sports' NBA insider Shams Charania, the Chicago Bulls, Charlotte Hornets and Orlando Magic are finalizing a three-team trade that includes a couple of highly-paid big men being moved.

The Hornets are reportedly trading Timofey Mosgov to the Magic, the Magic are reportedly sending Bismack Biyombo to the Hornets and the Bulls are reportedly getting Julyan Stone.

"Sources: Charlotte, Chicago and Orlando finalizing trade that includes Mozgov to Magic, Biyombo to Charlotte and Julyan Stone to Bulls," Woj reports.

ESPN NBA analyst Zach Lowe points out that Bismack and Timofey basically make the same amount of money. Their contracts are also the same length.

Chicago guard Jerian Grant is reportedly being included in the deal, per Charania. He will be going to Orlando.

It's unclear if anyone else is involved in the three-team trade. Stay tuned for more details.
