Wizards quiet with trade deadline looming

  • John Wall discusses end of Otto Porter and Markieff Morris time with Wizards

Porter stuffs the stat sheet, but has still yet to average more than 15 points per game in a season. He is averaging 14.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 26.7 minutes per game this season and is shooting.474 from the field, .325 from three-point range and.731 from the free-throw line.

Porter was drafted by the Wizards in 2013.

Additionally, Porter's lack of assertiveness, absence of joy, and passive-aggressive relationships with Wall and Beal all contribute to a rather underwhelming tenure.

For that reason, this trade primer serves up where the Bulls stand entering the day but given Bobby Portis was the most logical player for the Thunder to look at I'm not going to dive into picking players just for the sake of making it happen. He averaged 14.1 points in 22 games in a season marred by knee and ankle injuries. Porter makes the Bulls better, and should return to being a 40% three-point shooter when fully healthy, but he is nearly surely not the guy who gets Chicago over the hump, and to find that guy, they probably need to be losing games, not winning them.

Hazard impressed by 'unbelievable' Gonzalo Higuain
He scored his second of the encounter via a thunderous 25-yard shot that flew pass Jonas Lössl into the back of the net. The City match is the first of a hard run, which includes the February 24 Carabao Cup final against the same opponents.

Neither Parker nor Portis may be on the roster for the 2019-20 season, which is fine because at the end of the day this was a salary dump by the Wizards.

Ahead of Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline, it is highly plausible that the Wizards make another move or two. Trading Ariza can help ensure getting under the tax, while maybe Green can be paired with Markieff Morris to further reduce the team's lofty payroll.

It remains to be seen if anyone would want to take on Porter's contract.

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.
