Parker, 23, is making $20 million this season and has a team option for $20 million on the books, too.
Parker, soon to be 24 in March, is a 6-8 power forward in his fifth season in the National Basketball Association out of Duke and on his third team in less than a year. Porter stuffs the stat sheet, but has still yet to average more than 15 points per game in a season.
Clearly, for the Wizards they are looking at clearing salary given where they entered the day (Wall out for a year and looking to be the first non-playoff luxury tax team).
This is not the sort of move the Wizards hoped to have to make, but it's a pragmatic one in the wake of Wall's injury.
So far this season, Porter has averaged 12.6 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game, and 2 assists per game.

Another reason we think that the game won't get a single player campaign anytime soon is that the game is primarily free to play. After a surprise launch on Monday, Apex Legends hit several milestones in its debut week on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC servers.
Additionally, Porter's lack of assertiveness, absence of joy, and passive-aggressive relationships with Wall and Beal all contribute to a rather underwhelming tenure.
Parker (6-8, 250) signed with the Bulls as a free agent on July 14, 2018. The power forward had averaged 14.1 points per game this season but has appeared in just 22 games. He shot 47.4 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from beyond the arc on almost three attempts from deep per game.
With Parker and Portis having expired contracts after this season, the Wizards front office just cleared major cap space moving forward.
Entering trade deadline day the Chicago Bulls have already made a big move which may make them less active today.
The next part of Markkanen's game that I would love to see him improve upon - especially with 28 games remaining - is his post game.
