Despite what Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis might want us to believe, the team is reportedly looking to move a core piece ahead of Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline. He is on the books for $20 million this season and has another $20 million team option for next season. In return, Washington will take on Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis. And, if the Bulls could land a quality point guard to pair with Zach LaVine this team could conceivably become a playoff contender as early as next season.
Durant, Curry drafted first, second in All-Star draft
TNT's Ernie Johnson asked LeBron if he'd like to have AD as his teammate and LeBron said he definitely would. Following the draft, Antetokounpo traded Simmons to Team LeBron for Westbrook.
Porter has spent his entire six-year career with the Wizards after they selected him with the third overall pick in the 2013 draft.
Porter has averaged 12.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in 29 minutes per game this season. Expect the Wizards to remain active through Thursday's deadline to shed more salary and get out of the tax entirely. Here's how the Wizards and Bulls shake out in this trade.
Oil prices edge lower, tightening supply outlook supports
West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell 70 cents, or 1.27 percent, to settle at $54.56 a barrel. The key story supporting the market and driving the price action is the OPEC-led production cuts.
For Chicago, this move is about bolstering the young core at a position of need. In 221 career games (27 starts) with the Bulls, Portis held averages of 9.7 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.3 minutes and shot.461 from the field, .350 from long range and.743 from the foul line. They already knew he'd be out for the rest of this season following heel surgery, but now they'll have to consider the possibility he might not be the same caliber of player again.
In exchange, the Wizards will receive Parker and Portis.
