It’s been 2 weeks since Bobby Portis was traded to the Washington Wizards, but the dude is clearly still upset with the Chicago Bulls … telling TMZ Sports how the team straight “blindsided” him.
“I was very disappointed,” Porter tells us … “I was getting ready for a game, not knowing it was gonna happen … you know, getting blindsided.”
“But, I’m just happy to be with a team now that really wants me. I can’t wait to get back started.”
The 24-year-old was drafted by the Bulls in the 1st round of the 2015 NBA Draft — and obviously felt he would be a Bull for a long time.
But, Chicago sent him packing in a deal for Otto Porter Jr. — and now Portis is focused on settling in with his new team in his new city.
“They have a good basketball culture here,” Portis said … “I’m just happy to be a part of it.”
By the way, the Wizards are only 2 games out of the playoff race — and Portis is optimistic they can make a serious run.
In fact, Portis says he likes his new team so much … he’s down to help recruit free agents this offseason — even giving a little D.C. pitch to Kevin Durant!!
