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

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

The Washington Wizards traded Otto Porter to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis, the team announced.

As a Wednesday full of moves wore on the day before the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline, the Washington Wizards made a decision to shift their previous "off limits" stance on Otto Porter Jr. This deal saves them about $3.5 million in salary for this season (Porter is owed $26 million, Parker is making $20 million and Portis about $2.5 million as he heads into restricted free agency). This is essentially the Bulls spending a few months earlier, acquiring a player in Porter who is one year removed from a terrific shooting season (.503/.441/.828) and at 25 years old still has room for improvement. Thus, it can be expected that the front office views Porter a solution at small forward. Chicago entered Wednesday's game against New Orleans with a 12-41 record and 15 losses in 17 games.

Pour certains Gilets Jaunes , c'est un gage d'organisation et de meilleure force de frappe que de se joindre à l'action syndicale. Ainsi, toutes les grandes villes de France sont concernées par cette grève, d'après L'Internaute .

For Chicago, this move is about bolstering the young core at a position of need. Did the Bulls make a smart move taking on Porter's bloated contract? Confronted Wednesday evening with the reality that wouldn't happen, Portis left the United Center just before the start of the Bulls' game against the Wizards.

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. With the Parker SF experiment failing, the only threes on the Chicago Bulls roster was rookie Chandler Hutchison and newly-acquired Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Aujourd'hui, le Paris Saint-Germain s'est difficilement imposé face au club de National Villefranche-Beaujolais (3-0). Mais l'entraîneur allemand a dû se résoudre à faire entrer ses stars Kylian Mbappé et Edinson Cavani en cours de jeu.

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. They initially planned for him to start at small forward, but former coach Fred Hoiberg shelved that quest in the preseason. Not long after Hoiberg was sacked and the newly promoted Jim Boylen took over on December 3, Parker fell out of the rotation altogether.
