The Washington Wizards Have Traded SF Otto Porter

The sharpshooter entered Wednesday averaging a career-high 24.8 points per game while shooting 46.9 percent from the field, 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free-throw line.

Washington traded Porter to the struggling Chicago Bulls on Wednesday for Parker and Portis.

The Philadelphia 76ers made somewhat of a splash by acquiring Tobias Harris from the Los Angeles Clippers to boost their already loaded starting five, and now the Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls have gotten into the trade action as well.

Porter has two seasons - which includes a player option in 2020-21 - remaining on the four-year, $104 million contract he signed in July 2017. Thus, it can be expected that the front office views Porter Jr.as a solution at small forward. 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.

Parker has been in and out of the Bulls' rotation recently and the team had reportedly been looking to move him. Parker landed on the second unit but didn't showcase much defensive effort early in the season. The fifth-year veteran signed a one-year, $20 million deal with the Bulls this summer.

In exchange, the Wizards will receive Parker and Portis. Washington was set to be repeat offenders of the luxury tax, but this trade now moves them closer out of it. He contributed 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds across 39 appearances. Not long after Hoiberg was sacked and the newly promoted Jim Boylen took over on December 3, Parker fell out of the rotation altogether.

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.
