Bulls complete Otto Porter Jr. trade with Wizards

In a trade with the Chicago Bulls that materialized quickly, the Wizards received Jabari Parker, Bobby Portis, and a protected 2023 second round draft pick.

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

Every trade needs to be graded and judged, and that's exactly what we're going to do here. Parker is averaging 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 26.7 minutes per game.

PF- Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr. 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 US in December gave Moscow a 60-day deadline to dismantle missiles it said breached the agreement. He said the military must reconfigure the existing defence budget to find money for the new weapons.

And just like that, news of All-Star point guard John Wall's ruptured left Achilles' tendon initiated a new era for the Wizards as Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline nears.

Parker was not playing much in Chicago and will likely not have his $20M team option for next season picked up in Washington.

Portis, turning 24 on February 10, was passed over in the 2015 NBA Draft when Washington moved up to take Kelly Oubre Jr. despite liking the Arkansas product.

For that reason, this trade primer serves up where the Bulls stand entering the day but given Bobby Portis was the most logical player for the Thunder to look at I'm not going to dive into picking players just for the sake of making it happen. If they received the right offer, they could deal Porter, who has three years and $82 million remaining on his contract, but proposals that offer only salary relief for a 25-year-old who is one of the best players on the roster aren't up the Wizards' alley. He averaged 14.1 points in 22 games in a season marred by knee and ankle injuries. He has shot 36.9 percent from 3-point range.
