Nets Could Target Otto Porter In Free Agency

Otto Porter will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season and the feeling within the Wizards’ organization is that he will draw interest from the Nets, Brian Lewis of the New York Post writes.

GM Sean Marks has attempted to land restricted free agents in the past, but he failed on all three of his attempts. The Nets signed Donatas Motiejunas to an offer sheet earlier in the month, but the Rockets decided to match before they released the big man. Allen Crabbe signed an offer sheet with Brooklyn during the offseason, but Portland decided to match the offer and retain its play-maker. The same situation occurred with Tyler Johnson and the Heat over the summer.

Porter is enjoying an excellent fourth season in the league and he reportedly could command a maximum-salary offer in restricted free agency. The small forward is averaging 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game while sporting an 18.1 player efficiency rating.

    A Lin, Bogdanovic, Porter, Booker, and Lopez lineup would be interesting

    Max player? Id rather wait for players that will really get them out of the cellar. Stick with guys like joe Harris playing well on minimum deal, give him 30m a night and his numbers would be great. But I guess if you don’t have your draft picks and have cap space you gotta use then you have to pay someone eventually.

    The Brooklyn GM is going to get black balled fast if he keeps offer sheeting everyone. He’s done it with three players so far.
