Bulls reportedly acquire Otto Porter Jr. from Wizards for Parker and Portis

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks flexed on the Wizards early Wednesday. More

Parker's situation is a bit more complicated, but his deal is essentially an expiring one as the Wizards would be foolish to pick up his $20 million option for next season. The Bulls project to have $21M (including their first round pick) in cap space for 2019-20. In his fourth season in the National Basketball Association, mainly coming off of the bench, Portis is averaging 14.1 points on 45 percent shooting including 37.5 percent from deep and 7.3 rebounds in 22 games. Further, ESPN's Zach Lowe and Kevin Arnovitz, both reputable National Basketball Association insiders, said on a podcast Monday that the Wizards have not made Porter available.

There was little doubt Wall's most recent injury would change the calculus of D.C.'s future plans, despite owner Ted Leonsis' message of not wanting to trade any of his core (Wall, Porter, and All-Star Bradley Beal). Parker is averaging 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 26.7 minutes per game. Parker is averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. He shot 47.4 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from beyond the arc on almost three attempts from deep per game.

In exchange, the Wizards will receive Parker and Portis. The move saves Washington almost $9 million including the tax this season. Teams have until 3:00 p.m. ET to finalize their trades. Trevor Ariza and Jeff Green will be sought after by playoff teams looking to add veteran depth.

Washington's on-court return is also not for nothing: Portis has had some good moments with Chicago (apart from punching Nikola Mirotic) and becomes a player they can extend the qualifying offer, then try to re-sign this summer if they choose.

The next part of Markkanen's game that I would love to see him improve upon - especially with 28 games remaining - is his post game.
