Kevin O’Conner of The Ringer reported that the Golden State Warriors have interest in Otto Porter Jr. Porter has only appeared in 45 games since being acquired by the Chicago Bulls. Porter came to Chicago via the 2019 trade that sent Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis to the Washington Wizards in exchange for his services.

In Porter’s 45 games across three seasons, he’s started 30 games, averaging 13.7 PPG, 2.2 APG, 6.3 RPG, while shooting 44% from the field and 40% from three-point range. After the Chicago Bulls selected rookie forward Patrick Williams with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Porter transitioned to a bench role, leaving the starting role to Williams.

There are rumors that the Bulls were shopping Porter and now he’s rumored to be a potential buy-out candidate. His chronic back issues and injury history, along with his $28 million dollar contract, may add difficulty to a trade scenario.

If he is bought out and the Warrior’s interest is real, Porter could be a help to them if he’s able to stay on the court. His consistent three-point shooting can help the Warrior’s push to get into the NBA Playoffs. Golden State’s record is currently 19-18, good enough for ninth place in a very competitive Western Conference.
