Bulls acquire Otto Porter from Wizards for Bobby Portis, Jabari Parker

The Wizards traded Otto Porter Jr. to the Bulls for what?

Porter is averaging 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, two assists and 1.6 steals this season. He's expected to be out for most of next season. This coming two days after the team learned that Wall may miss the entire 2019-20 season after it was discovered he almost completely ruptured his left Achilles tendon.

The Washington Wizards went from hoping to make some noise again in the Eastern Conference this preseason to owning possibly the worst contract in the National Basketball Association with the John Wall injuries to going into a full salary dump right before the trade deadline.

The Wizards have agreed to send the 25-year-old forward to the Bulls, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

Apex Legends hits 1 million players in under 8 hours, beats Fortnite
Respawn has officially stated though that Titanfall 3 is now not in development and all their resources are working on Apex . Instead, you'll choose from a group of Legends (the heroes of this title), each with their own specific skills and weapons.


For Chicago, the trading of Portis signals the complete passing of the frontcourt torch to second-year forward Lauri Markkanen and rookie big man Wendell Carter Jr. Porter is making just over $26 million this season.

Here's where the Bulls stand entering trade deadline day. He shot 47.4 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from beyond the arc on almost three attempts from deep per game. 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. He will help them and fits with their pieces-it's just that Chicago should be more interested in draft assets and cheaper young talent based on where they're at in the rebuild. Maybe they rehabilitate Porter's value and trade him again. The fifth-year veteran signed a one-year, $20 million deal with the Bulls this summer.

Neither Parker nor Portis may be on the roster for the 2019-20 season, which is fine because at the end of the day this was a salary dump by the Wizards.
