The Los Angeles Clippers are trading guard Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards for center Marcin Gortat, league sources tell ESPN.

John Wall made it clear that the Wizards needed to figure out who wanted to be in DC and he also said Wiz needed more athletic bigs. Gortat and Wall certainly had their bumps in their relationship. It was time for a change.

Gortat has one year and $13.6 million remaining on his contract. News of his arrival in Southern California coincides with DeAndre Jordan’s ability to opt out of his contract and test free agency.
