    Otto Porter Jr. #22 of the Washington Wizards dribbles the ball against Amir Johnson #90 of the Boston Celtics in the first quarter in Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at Verizon Center on May 7, 2017 in Washington, DC.

    A person familiar with the situation says the Washington Wizards have traded Otto Porter Jr. for the Chicago Bulls' Jabari Parker and Bobby Portis.

    The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced. The Athletic first reported the deal.

    The move signals Washington's intent to change things up in the aftermath of news that All-Star point guard John Wall needs surgery for a ruptured left Achilles tendon. Wall is expected to miss much — if not all — of next season. He already was sidelined for the rest of this season because of an operation on his left heel.

    It also ends a failed experiment for Chicago after Parker signed with his hometown team.
