The Los Angeles Clippers have traded Austin Rivers to the Washington Wizards for center Marcin Gortat

The trade makes sense. Both players make about the same amount for the 2018-2019 season and are free agents after that. The Wizards needed a good third guard to play behind John Wall and Bradley Beal and the Clippers need a big man, now that they are likely trading DeAndre Jordan.

Here's how Twitter is reacting to the deal.
