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

09 February, 2019, 05:28 | Author: Isabel Grant
  • The Wizards traded Otto Porter Jr. to the Bulls for what?

In the 2018 offseason, Parker signed a two-year $40 million contract with the Bulls, but the second year of the deal is a team option. The 23-year-old averaged 14.3 points and 6.2 boards per game in 39 games and 17 starts this season.

Despite what Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis might want us to believe, the team is reportedly looking to move a core piece ahead of Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Parker has averaged 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in 26.7 minutes per game this season.

And after Wall's latest injury, NBC insider Tom Haberstroh reported the Wizards plan to "stay the course" in chasing the postseason. Over his six seasons in the league, he has put up career averages of 10.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.18 steals in 384 games (271 starts) while shooting.483 from the field, .399 from three (17th among active players) and.786 from the free throw line. Porter makes the Bulls better, and should return to being a 40% three-point shooter when fully healthy, but he is nearly surely not the guy who gets Chicago over the hump, and to find that guy, they probably need to be losing games, not winning them.

The Wizards were content to keep Otto Porter Jr.as recent as earlier this week.

Both Portis and Parker can come off the books at year end with their expiring contracts. Teams have until 3:00 p.m. ET to finalize their trades. Trading Ariza can help ensure getting under the tax, while maybe Green can be paired with Markieff Morris to further reduce the team's lofty payroll.

The Wizards play in D.C. on Friday against the Cavaliers on the first game of a back-to-back before they quickly visit Porter in Chicago on Saturday.
