It appears that Washington Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr. could be on the move.

According to multiple reports, the Bulls have reached an agreement with the Wizards to acquire Porter in exchange for forwards Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker and a future second round pick.

The 25-year-old Porter was selected third overall by the Wizards in the 2013 NBA Draft. This season, the Georgetown product has averaged 12.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists through 41 games.

Portis, 23, is in his fourth year out of Arkansas and is averaging 14.1 points and 7.3 rebounds in 22 games this season. Parker, the No. 2 overall pick in 2014, has appeared in 39 games this season and is averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in under 27 minutes per game.

In the 2018 offseason, Parker signed a two-year $40 million contract with the Bulls, but the second year of the deal is a team option.

Washington and Chicago are both set to take the floor soon - the Wizards host Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks while the Bulls host the New Orleans Pelicans. Washington and Chicago will meet on Saturday, Feb. 9
