Otto Porter for Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker and future second rounders
Looks like Wizards in rebuild mode with Wall out till 2020-21 season

Is Beal next ?
Oh Happy Day!

I like Otto...especially being a Grown product, but his contract didn't match his production. I'm not sure of the Portis contract, but Parker's shouldn't be bad. So I like the move.

Sacramento is sending Iman Shumpert to the Rockets, Cavs are trading Alec Burks and a 2nd-Round Pick to the Kings, and Houston is sending Brandon Knight and a Draft Pick to Cleveland, per @ShamsCharania.
Hmm ...

... the last time a Washington team traded for a Portis, they got the short end of the deal.
And wow, you weren't kidding for Wall.

I don't think he plays again and if he does, he's probably just a bit player with a max contract.

The Wizards are the Detroit Lions of the NBA.
Harrison Barnes was traded

To the Kings... in the middle of a game?

If Iím Magic, I start offering pieces for Beal. If they can get him - great. But can also use it as leverage for New Orleans.
Why would Chicago make that deal?

They're taking Porter off of the Wiz's hands. He's a nice player, but not at that salary.
Bulls need a scorer

on the wing.

Porter is young - 25 - and should be a good fit with the young Bulls - Markenen, Wendall Carter, LaVine

Bulls dump Jabari Parker along with his attitude, lack of D and big contract.

Portis will be looking for big $ next year and did not fit with the Bulls

This actually works out pretty well for the Bulls since they are unable to attract any decent FA's and had a big need at SF

Bulls now have a decent young core and should get a nice draft pick to further boost their youth movement and athleticism.
