Basically Tyrell Terry plus cap filler from the Bulls perspective. From the Mavs perspective, I think you guys land a starter who has previously excelled playing next to a high usage star. I assume you guys like Terry, but I also feel like that's a reasonable price to pay to land a playoff starter.
That looks pretty good to me.
I would want to keep WCS. Also I honestly don’t see what the fascination with Otto Porter is. Other than his expiring contract. Watching him last night I was really underwhelmed. Not once did I ever think, oh we need that guy!

He's certainly not the sexiest player, and he is overpaid (although it's just a 1 year deal now so whatever).
But he never turns it over, shoots 40%+ from 3 on decent volume, and has defensive value.
Maybe you guys will have more ambitious plans at the trade deadline. But I feel like Otto is a solid plan B to improve your playoff chances if plan A strikes out.
