K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago fully expects Otto Porter to exercise his player option and return to the Bulls next season.
No surprises here, as Porter has been hurt pretty much all year and would be a fool to pass up the $28.4 million he's set to earn next year. Even a healthy Porter might not get that much on the open market with teams trying to save space for the summer of 2021. Porter was great in his first half-season with Chicago but has been limited to nine lackluster games this year. Formerly a top-50 lock, he's lost a lot of luster this campaign. He recently returned to practice and should be back in action soon, though expectations need to be tempered. Porter's a fine flier in most formats but he isn't a must-stash player unless you have IR spots free.
