In exchange for Portis and Jabari, per Shams. There goes our cap space.
Man I've been saying for a while these motherfuckers (GarPax) have no actual plan. This trade proves it.Not sure the Bulls have any idea what direction they are trying to take
I have seen numerous articles saying how well the Bulls did...It doesn't make sense.
Its a heavily protected second round pick in 2023 that will most probably never change hands.Well the good news is we aren't re-signing Bobby. I don't really care about Porter's contract either as we aren't getting any good free agents anytime soon and we could use a small forward.
I don't understand why we gave up a 2nd round pick when we are helping the Wizards out by taking this albatross contract. I also hope Otto doesn't add to our win total this season.
Anything to dump LaVine.Its a heavily protected second round pick in 2023 that will most probably never change hands.
I really liked Otto Porter Jr that draft. Beginning of the year he was the consensus #1 pick. We all know that Bennett never worked out for Cleveland and Olidipo found his game in Indy, but he was the third pick, a guy that was just supposed to spread the floor for two ball needy guards in Washington.
Crazy eyes Portis will not put any more bulls players out of game action on the practice floor anymore. He was expecting to be paid big, Lavine money, and like everyone says, what good is cap space if nobody wants to come here. Porter has been passive, so if he starts taking open shots instead of deferring, we might see what he can really be. He lead the NBA in 3 pt % last year, so when he does eventually shoot, it falls more than average. The bulls also got an actual defender, someone that does not have to be taught to defend.
I would not be surprised if Washington moves either Portis or Jabari, but it will be awkward saturday night if they are there. Expect Jabari to go for 40 if he plays.
The bigger thing that came out of this trade was Lavine asking for a ticket out of town. Traded his best bud, and Jabari had more talent than anyone in that locker room and he got a raw deal. We may have that cap space back everyone wants.
