President Ernie Grunfeld sat down with CSN’s Chris Miller on Monday to discuss, confirming a report from two weeks ago that they’re committed to the small forward who was drafted No. 3 overll in 2013. “We want to keep Otto. We’ve said that. He’s a very valuable piece for us. He fits the puzzle very well,” Grunfeld said.”At the appropriate time we’ll sit with his representative and work it out.”
The Wizards have no intention of letting Porter walk, but they’ll have to overpay to keep him. Even if Porter accepts a deal in the range of what Beal makes over five seasons (the Wizards can give him one more year than other teams, so he would make five years and about $115-120 million in that case), the team will be setting itself up to pay its top three players $65-70 million per year. That number will spike when Wall gets an extension.
