Wizards match Otto Porter’s max offer sheet from Nets
The Wizards showed they were serious about keeping Otto Porter by matching the offer sheet from the Nets.
Earlier in the week, Porter agreed to a $106 million max deal with the Nets. It had been reported Washington would match any offers Porter received and, as Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports, the Wizards did just that on Saturday.
