In some unsurprising NBA contractual news, Bulls' small forward Otto Porter Jr. will opt into his $28.4 million player option for the 2020-21 season. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported the news on Sunday night.

Otto Porter Jr.'s time in Chicago has been tumultuous so far. The Bulls acquired him from the Washington Wizards during the 2018-19 season and he has battled injury issues ever since arriving in Chicago. Porter Jr. has only appeared in 29 games for the Bulls.
