He was originally selected with the second overall pick by the Bucks in the 2014 NBA Draft out of Duke, where he played one season with the Blue Devils and averaged 19.1 points and 8.7 rebounds to earn First Team All-America, First Team All-ACC and ACC Rookie of the Year honors.

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis said in late January the team was "not trading" Porter.

Donald Trump will keep troops in Iraq to 'watch Iran'
Since Trump's announcement, the US military has removed some equipment and supplies from Syria, though no USA troops have left. A variety of Iraqi lawmakers used Trump's visit to the al-Asad base in December to call on US forces to leave the country.

- The Washington Wizards decided they needed to shake things up with All-Star point guard John Wall out for the season. The Wizards held onto Porter in 2017 by matching a $106.5 million, four-year, max-contract offer he had signed with the Brooklyn Nets. He is making $26 million this season, $27.2 million next season, and has a player option for $28.4 million the season after that, which he would likely pick up.

The Bulls, meanwhile, are in the midst of a "tanking" season at just 12-41. It looks like once again the Bulls won't be big-time players in free agency. Confronted Wednesday evening with the reality that wouldn't happen, Portis left the United Center just before the start of the Bulls' game against the Wizards. He's expected to be out for most of next season. Parker is averaging 14.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. He wasn't really a fit for former coach Fred Hoiberg's pace-and-space offense and isn't much of a defensive player - an area current coach Jim Boylen stresses. The 23-year-old Portis is averaging career highs in points (14.1), rebounds (7.3) and 3-point shooting (37.5 percent).
