Thanks to the Brooklyn Nets, the Washington Wizards are on the clock.
Once again, the Nets have inked a rising restricted free agent to a substantial offer sheet. This time around, it’s former No. 3 pick Otto Porter scoring a four-year, $106 million max offer sheet, as Charania first reported.
Brooklyn previously tried this route with Tyler Johnson, Allen Crabbe and Donatas Motiejunas, but their respective clubs all matched the Nets’ offer sheets. However, the strategy is sound in that Brooklyn has little to lose by tying up cap space, and Porter is worth the gamble.
Porter broke out in 2016-17, posting career marks nearly across the board—13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, a 51.6 field-goal percentage and 43.4 shooting from three-point range. He ranked inside the 97th percentile as a spot-up sniper, had the seventh-highest true shooting percentage of any double-digit scorer (62.8) and finished sixth among small forwards with a 3.56 real plus-minus, per ESPN.com.
