The Washington Wizards are reportedly sending small forward Otto Porter to the Chicago Bulls for Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker, according to a report from National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania.
Looking forward to next season the Bulls could be a top squad if OPJ, Markkanen and Carter Jr. mesh.
For Chicago, this move is about bolstering the young core at a position of need. This trade was an acknowledgement by the Bulls of that league-wide belief, as big-market teams rarely give up a maximum-salary slot in a strong free-agent class to acquire a good player who nonetheless doesn't much move the needle much in their long-term championship aspirations.
Portis is averaging 14.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in 24.1 minutes this season. In return, Washington will take on Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. However, just two years later, Portis was making headlines again, but for all the wrong reasons. He declined an interview request and appeared emotional, observers said.

Parker had signed a one-year, $20 million deal with his hometown Bulls prior to the start of the season, but quickly fell in new head coach Jim Boylan's doghouse. The experiment failed miserably. It was expected by many, including myself, that the team would look to address this hole in the upcoming draft, as there are many phenomenal prospects at small forward this year.
He worked his way back into the rotation with more consistent effort, but his production often felt as empty as the Bulls' lost season.
Parker (6-8, 245) has averaged 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds (tying his career high) and 2.2 assists in 39 games with the Bulls this season, posting five double-doubles while recording 20+ points nine times.
