At the same time though, those were some amazing offers from the Lakers.

Not really. Not an all star in the bunch IMO.  And the draft picks are all going to be late 1st round.

The Pelicans would be crazy to trade him now before anyone knows how the draft will play out. You could be looking at another franchise player (Zion) versus a bunch of crap the Lakers are trying to get rid of.

I would rather get the celtics deal that can be available after the season. Pels should not be held hostage here.

I think the Lakers are just posturing. I think they'll give the pelicans whatever they want by Thursday.  They need to try to capitalize off of Lebron. Waiting to sign AD when Lebron is 36 could be pretty risky.

Bulls just traded Portis and Jabari for Otto Porter

Couldn't figure out why the Wiz would give up a decent player until I looked at the $60 million+ over 2.5 years remaining on his contract.

I guess if no one will ever want your cap space you might as well do moves like that until you get out of the hole.

Porter’s shot went to hell but he has really good upside. I’m not displeased.

Bulls being realistic about their cap space, basically admitting it's not gonna work in 2019 and punting.

He really doesn’t.  Mediocre player making a shit ton of money.  Classic Bulls

I can't believe they had the balls to trade Portis. Fantastic! BUT... would've rather them try and get a 1st rounder.

GarPax always get their man.  Weren't they linked to Otto the last few years?

The Bulls get a slightly better player out of it, and make sure they're not below the minimum salary penalties next season. Although Otto is overpaid, so was Parker, and Portis was up for an extension that would raise his price.

Sad part is he is probably our best player now (depending on what you think of Lauri). Solid 2 way guy.

Really thought you'd need a 1st to absorb Porter...2-way player, but massively overpaid. If the Wiz had thrown in a pick, I'd love this deal.

Now if I'm the Bulls I try to do RoLo to Houston for Knight + 1st

Debatable which of those two is better actually and Portis would have been cheaper next year on a new deal than Porter will be at $26m plus the next two years.  Parker is irrelevant, he sucks and would have been gone.
