No extension for Otto Porter?

Otto Porter appears likely to become a restricted free agent next summer, with no movement towards an extension to his rookie scale contract with the Wizards before starting the 2016-17 season, league sources tell CSNmidatlantic.com. Porter, drafted No. 3 overall in 2013, would end up like Bradley Beal a year ago when he didn’t work out a deal with the Wizards still owning the first right of refusal to retain his services. They acted quickly on Beal by signing him to a $128 million deal over five years this summer that will be made official later today or Wednesday.

Brooks, I’m told, is a strong believer in Porter’s potential. Porter averaged 11.6 points and 5.2 rebounds, and shot 36.7 percent on 3-pointers. And Porter does a lot of little things right, namely he’s a solid defender both individually and in the team concept. But it’s still not what the third pick in the 2013 Draft is expected to provide after three seasons. There’s no reason Brooks can’t take a good look at Porter while the team explores adding another player at that position. If the Wizards succeed, they can move Porter along.
Drew Gooden III (calf) and Otto Porter Jr. (hip) took part in the session, giving Washington 13 available players for practice for the first time since November. Porter’s participation was limited, but it constitutes significant progress for the third-year forward and Wizards Coach Randy Wittman said his playing status would’ve been a game-time decision Saturday against the Jazz.
