Wizards sending Porter to Bulls

NBA Trade Grades: Wizards sending Otto Porter Jr. to Bulls

Let's break it down. But following a season-ending injury to Wall this year, and with any hopes of making a playoff run quickly dissipating, this was as good of a time as any for Washington to make a move. He also has a $28.4-million player option for 2020-21. With Wall set to miss an entire year and potentially more, there was added incentive for the Wizards to shed Porter's contract.

So far this season, Porter has averaged 12.6 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game, and 2 assists per game.

Looking forward to next season the Bulls could be a top squad if OPJ, Markkanen and Carter Jr. mesh. Portis has certainly shown enough to be worth a trial run, and the future second-rounder definitely sweetens the return.

Porter, 25, has always been one of the Wizards' core pieces to the roster after being drafted with the third overall pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.

He added that he would wait for clarifications from Washington on the numbers and nature of the USA troops' mission in his country.

Now, Parker will look to rebuild his stock in Washington.

The Washington Wizards sure are an interesting National Basketball Association organization.

Owner Ted Leonsis told WTOP last week his team would not trade away their core of Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter.

Chicago was a clear seller entering the trade deadline and their move Wednesday confirmed that information. Without knocking Porter specifically, the ceiling for this move is rather limited. Parker was unhappy anyway, but hanging onto him would have at least created cap space and given Chicago financial flexibility this summer. If Porter were to hit those benchmarks again in a season, he would be the fifth National Basketball Association player ever to post such numbers in at least three seasons. Porter could have more of an opportunity to shine offensively in Chicago. The fact that they had to surrender a second-rounder in a deal that absolves the Wizards of financial dirty laundry feels wholly unnecessary. They already knew he'd be out for the rest of this season following heel surgery, but now they'll have to consider the possibility he might not be the same caliber of player again. Beyond unloading Porter's contract, the Wizards save about $4M this season (accounting for Parker's and Portis' contracts) and lower their luxury tax bill.
