Trade seems super fair to me.

Porter is the better defender and rebounder-- two things we need desperately. Other than that, talent level is about on par.

Both guys earn about 25mill a year.

Barnes has this year and a player option for next year which he'd be dumb to turn down.
Porter has basically the same contract but with one more year (player option after NEXT season)

Wiz may be able to talk Barnes into opting out so he would be expiring or maybe he'd hate DC as much as the rest of America does. Wiz need to blow it up anyway and saving 25mill is a good start. Otherwise they save a year of Porter. Mavs get a player that better fits what we're in need of (defense, rebounding, while still spreading the floor). Plus Barnes has been red hot from three and is currently shooting 42% from three (43.4% in December and 44.1% in November)
