"I don't play defense" Jabari Parker and "I'll punch you if you don't play nice" Bobby Portis to the Washington Wizards in order to get back Otto Porter Jr. "While in his sixth pro season, he is only 25 years old and is someone who will be a good fit for our team moving forward", said Gar Forman, General Manager of the Chicago Bulls. With Wall set to miss an entire year and potentially more, there was added incentive for the Wizards to shed Porter's contract.

Here's a look at the Bulls updated roster and projected starting lineup after the trade.

Portis, 23, and the Bulls couldn't come to terms on a contract extension before the season, and he stood to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Parker, soon to be 24 in March, is a 6-8 power forward in his fifth season in the National Basketball Association out of Duke and on his third team in less than a year. Parker, also 23, has averaged 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game in 39 appearances with 17 starts.

Porter is averaging 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and two assists in his sixth National Basketball Association season out of Georgetown.

There are automated tools which help police the very inappropriate comments getting through, but there is also manual moderation. A source close to Mr Barr revealed: " Meghan has been having regular acupuncture sessions to help her unwind and relax".

It was unsure if the Wizards (22-31) would actually go through with breaking up their core three of Porter, John Wall and Bradley Beal. He will help them and fits with their pieces-it's just that Chicago should be more interested in draft assets and cheaper young talent based on where they're at in the rebuild.

6-8, 198) was selected third overall by the Washington Wizards in the 2013 NBA Draft.

After spending some time in the rumor mill, Otto Porter is officially on his way out of Washington.

And after Wall's latest injury, NBC insider Tom Haberstroh reported the Wizards plan to "stay the course" in chasing the postseason.
