Nikola Vucevic traded for Otto Porter

Otto Porter trade

The Orlando Magic have traded center Nikola Vucevic and forward Al-Farouq Aminu to the Chicago Bulls for two forwards, Otto Porter, Jr. and Wendell Carter. These moves developed hours before the NBA’s trade deadline.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the news via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.

Porter was drafted by the Washington Wizards in 2013, where he played about 5.5 seasons before being traded to the Chicago Bulls. Now, he will be introduced to a third team during the ninth year of his NBA tenure. He will be joined in Orlando by third-year forward and Bulls teammate Wendell Carter, Jr. who was drafted near the top of the first round in 2018.

Although he was drafted by (and played a season for) Philadelphia, Vucevic is mostly seen as the latest in the Orlando Magic’s long lineage of great centers. In nine seasons with the Magic, he has made two All Star games and averaged 17.6 points. Joining him in Chicago will be NBA veteran and journeyman Al-Farouq Aminu, who will be playing for his sixth team in 11 seasons.
