Porter has two seasons - which includes a player option in 2020-21 - remaining on the four-year, $104 million contract he signed in July 2017.
Porter undoubtedly improved in his first five seasons in the league, but his sixth season has seen him plateau and struggle to stay healthy.
This season, Porter is averaging 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and a career-high 1.56 steals (tied-14th) in 41 games (28 starts).
This is not the sort of move the Wizards hoped to have to make, but it's a pragmatic one in the wake of Wall's injury. With neither team going anywhere in a hurry, the Bulls racing to the bottom and the Wizards reeling after John Wall's Achilles tear, this is a trade seeking to better position both teams for the next couple seasons.
RBI Policy: MPC Cuts Repo Rate by 25 Basis Points to 6.25%
However, inflation dropping to a 18-month low of 2.19% in December appears to have prompted the MPC to go in for a cut. It was the first policy review by the RBI after appointment of its governor Shaktikanta Das in December past year .
Additionally, Porter's lack of assertiveness, absence of joy, and passive-aggressive relationships with Wall and Beal all contribute to a rather underwhelming tenure.
On the other hand, Parker, 23, has only played in 39 games and is averaging 14.3 points per game.
The Wizards had become aggressive in attempting to move Porter while Parker had been in the doghouse for the Bulls, falling out of the rotation in December before recently regaining a role off of the bench. He has shot 36.9 percent from 3-point range. The 6-11 big will enter restricted free agency this summer along with Tomas Satoransky and Sam Dekker.
With Parker and Portis having expired contracts after this season, the Wizards front office just cleared major cap space moving forward. The move saves Washington almost $9 million including the tax this season. 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.
