Wizards coach Scott Brooks praised Otto Porter during Wednesday's press conference, saying, "He does so many little things that the stats don't show."
"I never look at Otto and judge him by the stat sheet," Brooks said. "He dives on the floor for a loose ball, he sets screens. He makes the extra pass to the corner, offensive rebounds." Across-the-board stats are the bedrock of Porter's roto-league fantasy appeal. He was a top-20 player on a cumulative basis in 9-cat leagues last year, averaging 13.4 points (51.5% FGs, 83.2% FTs), 1.9 threes, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 turnovers, with only two missed games all season. He doesn't jump out in any category, however, and is likely to be undervalued in most drafts. Jul 19 - 9:12 PM

The Wizards have matched Otto Porter's max contract offer sheet from the Nets, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

And the Wizards have kept to their word. Porter's contract does have some funky terms with the forward getting half of his money up front to start each season along with a 15 percent trade kicker. The bottom line is Porter will get a whopping $106 million over the next four years and he'll remain Washington's elite 3-and-D guy for the foreseeable future. Also, he probably owes John Wall a nice dinner, a watch, and probably some other stuff, as well.
Jul 8 - 10:01 PM

The Wizards have received the $106 million offer sheet from Brooklyn on Otto Porter.

The deal has a player option on the fourth year and a trade kicker. For over a month, the Wizards have said they will match this four-year deal. Porter's contract will be bigger than John Wall's current one, but Porter has made it clear he's a great fit as a defender and floor spacer. Expect the Wizards to match in the next few days. Also, the Nets may have to wait on this before they potentially send an offer sheet to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

The Wizards will match the four-year, $104 million max offer sheet that Otto Porter agreed to with the Nets, according to multiple sources of Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post.

The Wizards have been saying for months that they would match any offer that Porter received on the open market, so at this point, it would be truly shocking if they reversed course on that front. Porter can't officially sign his contract with Brooklyn until Thursday, and the Wizards will likely wait the full two days before announcing that they'll match, so things likely won't become official until Saturday.
Jul 5 - 12:23 PM

Otto Porter has agreed to a four-year, $104 million max offer sheet from the Brooklyn Nets.

Once Porter signs the offer sheet, the Wizards will have 48 hours to match. Washington has said all along that they will match any offer, so now let's see if they follow through on that promise -- David Aldridge of NBA.com is reporting that they will. Brooklyn would be an ideal landing spot for Porter in terms of fantasy value, so his dynasty owners will be hoping this deal goes through.
Jul 4 - 9:40 PM

The Jazz will pursue restricted free agent Otto Porter according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

This comes on the heels of Gordon Hayward's decision to join Boston, as his departure leaves a void at the small forward position in Utah. It's been widely reported that the Wizards will match any offer for Porter, but the Jazz and Nets aren't going to make things easy for Washington by offering him max deals.
Jul 4 - 8:18 PM

With the Kings awarding contracts to George Hill and Zach Randolph, they will no longer be able to tender a max-offer to Otto Porter.

Porter is still scheduled to meet with two other teams (one of those teams being Brooklyn) before he makes an official decision as to where he'll sign, but Sacramento is now officially out of the running. Porter will very likely receive a max offer sheet from everyone he meets with, so it'll ultimately be up to Washington as to whether or not they will match. For what it's worth, all the reporting thus far has indicated that the Wizards fully intend to match any offer Porter receives on the open market.
Jul 4 - 3:32 PM

Restricted FA Otto Porter is expected to meet with two more teams before deciding which offer-sheet he'll accept.

Whichever teams he meets with will almost certainly make Porter a maximum offer, as the Kings did on Sunday for $106 million over four years. It could all be moot since Washington has vowed to match any offers for their prized RFA, but it looks like Porter is doing his due diligence on the off-chance Washington backs down.
Jul 2 - 8:24 PM

The Kings have reportedly offered Otto Porter a four-year, max-deal worth $106 million.

The Wizards have stated on numerous occasions that they would be willing match any offer Porter received on the open market, so it'll be interesting to see if they stick to their word. Porter still hasn't finished his free agent meetings, so he may have multiple max offer sheets to choose from. Once he signs his name on the dotted line, Washington will have 48 hours to decide whether or not they will match.
Jul 2 - 6:06 PM

The Kings will meet Otto Porter on Sunday according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

While the Wizards are expected to match all offers for Porter, he is seeking a max deal and the Kings and Nets are expected to offer him one. The Wizards were interested in Paul George before his trade to the Thunder, but since they have no shot at someone like Gordon Hayward, bringing back Porter should be a priority for the franchise even if they have to break the bank.
Jul 2 - 9:34 AM

The Kings and Nets are among the likeliest teams to meet with Otto Porter on Sunday, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

The Wizards are fully expected to match any offer, so it'll be interesting to see who gets him to agree to an offer sheet. Sometimes making an offer on a restricted free agent when his team is expected to match can backfire because it locks up the cap money until the offer is matched. If you go back to 2014, Gordon Hayward was a restricted free agent and Charlotte offered him a max deal, but of course the Jazz later matched. With Charlotte's money tied up before Utah matched, they later missed out on some free agents like Chandler Parsons and others. The moral of the story is restricted rights can go a long way. Again, Porter is fully expected to stick with the Wizards.
Jul 1 - 5:53 PM

The meeting between the Wizards and Otto Porter ended and they have not come to an agreement yet, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

Just because a deal hasn't been reached doesn't mean much. The Wizards have vowed to match any offer on the restricted free agent, so the Wizards may just be waiting to see which team offers up the max to one of the league's most improved players.
Jul 1 - 2:00 AM

The Wizards "intend to match any offer" on restricted free agent Otto Porter, according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

This is pretty much a non-update, but you can bet Nets general manager Sean Marks is going to have to make the Wizards pay up to keep the breakout forward. Porter is in close to a perfect spot as a 3-and-D player and still busted out in fantasy as a second-round guy.
Jun 30 - 7:16 PM

The Wizards will get the first shot to sign restricted free agent Otto Porter, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

The Wizards can match any offer on Porter, and there's a very good chance teams like the Nets will be throwing max money at him. Porter had a breakout season last year and has emerged as an excellent fit next to John Wall and Bradley Beal.
Jun 29 - 3:59 PM

The Wizards have reportedly extended a qualifying offer to Otto Porter, making the forward a restricted free agent.

The Wizards have the ability to match any offer he receives, so it's hard to imagine them letting him go even though he could be looking at a max deal. The Nets are expected to make a strong push to pry him away from Washington, but several other teams should surface as we approach July 1. Porter averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 treys on 51.6 percent shooting, returning top-25 value in standard leagues.
