The Nets have long been rumored to be willing to pay up for Porter. The Wizards caught a break when the Mavericks traded for Nerlens Noel, another restricted free agent, because Dallas intends to make him an offer in the max range — the Mavs had intended to pursue Porter. League sources suggest the Magic and Sixers will also consider making offers for Porter.
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.

The Pistons met with Anigbogu and worked out five other prospects Tuesday in their first round of pre-draft workouts at their practice facility. Anigbogu didn’t get on the court, due to soreness in his right knee, tweaked in his previous workout, but talked with Stan Van Gundy and the coaching staff, received treatment and said he gained something from watching others work out.
