Wizards aggressively looking to trade Otto Porter Jr

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

According to multiple reports, the Bulls have reached an agreement with the Wizards to acquire Porter in exchange for forwards Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker and a future second round pick.

Parker and Portis are the Bulls third and fourth-leading scorers behind Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen.

The Washington Wizards were looking to trade Otto Porter and have found a taker in the Chicago Bulls. Further, ESPN's Zach Lowe and Kevin Arnovitz, both reputable National Basketball Association insiders, said on a podcast Monday that the Wizards have not made Porter available.

ESPN's Bobby Marks reported that the Bulls will have $21 million in cap space this summer after the Porter trade. Porter had been dealing with injuries on and off this season, and though he is still just 25 years old, the upside with his financial setup and the Wizards' immediate trajectory was limited, and he becomes a casualty of the organization's new reality. His production has dipped across the board following a breakout 2017-18 campaign, as he's averaging 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.6 steals on 45.7 percent shooting in 29 minutes per game.

Additionally, Porter's lack of assertiveness, absence of joy, and passive-aggressive relationships with Wall and Beal all contribute to a rather underwhelming tenure. In 39 games, Parker averaged 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

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.

Porter is averaging 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and two assists in his sixth National Basketball Association season out of Georgetown. Teams have until 3:00 p.m. ET to finalize their trades.
