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

The Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls have just pulled off a major trade.

It looks like the Gar Forman/John Paxson brain trust in the Chicago front office is pretty comfortable with locking up a lot of money.

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

The Washington Wizards were looking to trade Otto Porter and have found a taker in the Chicago Bulls.

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis recently said in an interview with local radio station WTOP that the team wasn't going to be dealing Porter, Bradley Beal, or John Wall ahead of this Thursday's trade deadline, according to NBC Sports' Lisa Redmond. Whereas, Bobby & Jabari will be restricted free agents this Summer.

The Wizards have traded forward Otto Porter Jr.to the Bulls.




They drafted Portis 22nd overall in the 2015 NBA Draft, and had signed Parker, a Chicago-native who had spent his first four seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks, to a two-year deal prior to this season.

Parker, 23, is making $20 million this season and has a team option for $20 million on the books, too.

In return, the Wizards are getting Portis, who is a change-of-scenery candidate, and Parker, who is seeking to prove himself after receiving limited playing time this season.

Portis, 23, is in his fourth year out of Arkansas and is averaging 14.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in 22 games this season.

As far as the game was concerned, the Chicago Bulls lost a close one 125-120 as they couldn't seem to get a stop late losing their ninth straight home game and extending their overall record to 12 wins and 42 losses - good for 4th worst in the National Basketball Association.
