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.
You mentioned people are wondering if you are going to be here next season. I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? Rudy Gay: I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it. I think it just goes to, I don’t know, I think there’s always ways to do things and in this situation I don’t think it’s going about the right way. No matter what your intentions to do with your players, I would think the first thing you want to do is make sure people are happy with what you are doing. That hasn’t been the case.
Rudy Gay: During the exit interview it was just how the season go, we should have done this, we should have done that. Those things weren’t really discussed at that point. I think it’s pretty obvious what situation is going on here. At this point in my career, I think I want some kind of consistency and we don’t have that here, at all. If you had your ideal communication situation, what would you like to hear from the franchise? Rudy Gay: You don’t want to hear things on the internet, on Twitter. You would like to hear it from out of the horse’s mouth. Just be upfront with people, that’s all you have to do.
