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

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

The Washington Wizards are reportedly sending small forward Otto Porter to the Chicago Bulls for Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker, according to a report from National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania.

Looking forward to next season the Bulls could be a top squad if OPJ, Markkanen and Carter Jr. mesh.

In addition, the Bulls will also send the Wizards a 2023 second-round draft pick as well.

And after Wall's latest injury, NBC insider Tom Haberstroh reported the Wizards plan to "stay the course" in chasing the postseason.

Parker's first and only season with the Bulls was a massive disappointment.

The 25-year-old Porter is averaging 12.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

Cohen begins a three-year prison sentence in March after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress. Cohen, a longtime ally and fixer for Trump, was scheduled to testify at a closed-door hearing before the panel on Friday.

After spending some time in the rumor mill, Otto Porter is officially on his way out of Washington.

One big thing they'll be getting off their hands is Porter's contract, in which they would owe him $27 million next year with a player option for $28.5 million for the 2019-20 season. Prior to Wednesday, the Wizards had said they wanted to keep Porter around.

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.

Additionally, Porter's lack of assertiveness, absence of joy, and passive-aggressive relationships with Wall and Beal all contribute to a rather underwhelming tenure. Parker is averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Whereas, Bobby & Jabari will be restricted free agents this Summer.

Both Portis and Parker can come off the books at year end with their expiring contracts.

Ahead of Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline, it is highly plausible that the Wizards make another move or two.
