The 2020–21 season was a logistical nightmare for the league. With empty arenas, games getting rescheduled, and players missing time in droves because of positive COVID tests, it resembled a bad indie flick more than professional sports. 21 players stepped on the court in a Celtics uniform due to the chaos, but no one had a more forgettable stint than Mo Wagner. 

The six-foot-11 Wagner showed flashes of being a stretch big across his few seasons with the Washington Wizards. In March of 2021, in dire need of spacing, the Celtics acquired Wagner in a three-team trade that netted them current fan favorite Luke Kornet. Like everything else during that campaign, it was an utter disaster. 

Wagner shot under 30% from the field during his nine games in Boston and sported a negative assist-to-turnover ratio. It felt like he spent more time on the floor than impacting the game. Defensively, he was clunky at best, and the total package led to one of the worst players in the franchise in recent memory.

The trade proved short-lived, as he was released just weeks later. He has since breathed new life into his career with the Orlando Magic, finding success as a valuable "glue guy" alongside his brother Franz.
