I honestly expected Kevon Looney to get more, interesting the Warriors squeezed him while letting Gary Payton II & Otto Porter Jr walk. Now they need to find equal replacements for their #7 & #8 bench players who contributed huge mins to the championship run. #dubnation4:08 PM

One big silver lining to the departures of JTA, GPII and Otto Porter: Jonathan Kuminga should be playing at least 25 minutes a night next season. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like fun to me. – 1:40 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
Free-agent forward Otto Porter Jr. has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Toronto Raptors. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/07/01/rep…1:31 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
So my understanding is the Raptors did use part of the MLE to sign Otto Porter Jr. to a two-year deal with a player option in year two. How much of the MLE that is left is the question, obviously. Raptors also have their Bi-annual exception (2yrs/$8m) in play. – 12:32 PM
Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Otto Porter is a quality catch-and-shoot three-point shooter. Had a bit of a down year last year at just 35%, but he was at 40% and above in the previous seasons. His short chart from last season 👇 pic.twitter.com/927kSxwApc12:23 PM

NBA free agents: Heat power-forward options Otto Porter (Raptors), Danilo Gallinari (Celtics) off board. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h… Top remaining free agents: Harden, Ayton, Miles Bridges, Looney, Nurkic, T.J. Warren, Sexton, Harrell, DiVencenzo, D. Jones Jr, Cody & Caleb Martin. – 12:13 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Pascal Siakam: 6-9 with a 7-3 wingspan.
OG Anunoby: 6-7, 7-2 wingspan.
Scottie Barnes: 6-9, 7-2 wingspan.
Precious Achiuwa: 6-8, 7-2 wingspan.
Chris Boucher: 6-9, 7-4 wingspan.
Khem Birch: 6-9, 7-1 wingspan.
Thad Young: 6-8, 7-0 wingspan.
Otto Porter Jr: 6-8, 7-2 wingspan. – 11:46 AM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors lose GP2, JTA and Otto Porter Jr. in the first 24 hours of free agency. Bob Myers said there would be a limit to the team’s spending this offseason, and it’s showing. – 11:46 AM
Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Otto Porter, Belly, and JTA were always a long shot to return to the Dubs. GPII is the one that hurts. Genuinely not sure if they win a title without him. – 11:44 AM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
With Otto Porter Jr. off the board, Heat’s remaining forward options in free agency include T.J. Warren and Danilo Gallinari, who is expected to be waived by Spurs.
Martin twins, Cody & Caleb, also among top free-agent forward options still available.
Durant would also work. – 11:39 AM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Never go wrong adding good two-way players. Raptors do that with Otto Porter Jr. that said, obviously still work to be done with little PG (and guard in general) depth, no veteran 7-footer (if they even want/need one). – 11:36 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
This Raptors squad is fun:
Fred VanVleet
Gary Trent Jr.
OG Anunoby
Scottie Barnes
Pascal Siakam
Bench:
Otto Porter Jr.
Chris Boucher

Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Apparently, power forwards are easier to get through customs. Toronto has 4 4s, with Siakam, Boucher, Thaddeus Young and Otto Porter Jr just now. Heat’s PF options – if they don’t get Durant – are diminishing, with TJ Warren (& soon) Gallinari among those available in free agency – 11:31 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Otto Porter Jr. had a veteran minimum offer on the table from the Warriors but is signing in Toronto for a better deal, per @Chris Haynes. Warriors have now lost the #7 and #8 players in their championship rotation in the first 24 hours of free agency. – 11:27 AM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Otto Porter goes to Raptors
A name floated around Heat plugging front-court spots
Most likely more focused on the big fish right now, but there are still some other back-up 4’s to grab late
Just guessing, but Crowder feels inevitable… – 11:26 AM
Chris Haynes @ChrisBHaynes
Free agent Otto Porter Jr. — vital member of Golden State Warriors championship team — reached an agreement with the Toronto Raptors on a two-year deal with a player option, league sources tell @YahooSports. sports.yahoo.com/otto-porter-jr…11:23 AM

Best remaining FAs: James Harden, Deandre Ayton, Zach LaVine, Miles Bridges, Kevon Looney, Jusuf Nurkic, Bruce Brown, TJ Warren, Colin Sexton, Mitchell Robinson, Gary Payton, Otto Porter, M. Harrell, Andre Drummond, D. DiVencenzo, Caleb & Cody Martin. sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…9:16 PM
Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
Gary Harris? Delon Wright? Derrick Jones Jr.? A couple others who might be out of the Jazz’s price range like Bruce Brown? Kyle Anderson? Otto Porter Jr.? – 7:27 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
With Mo Bamba and Malik Monk off the board, my preferred Lakers MLE target becomes Otto Porter. – 6:14 PM
Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Will be interesting to see the fine details of Bradley Beal’s new contract
Presume he gets the same player option in the last season and 15% trade kicker that Otto Porter Jr. and John Wall had – 5:32 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Heat convos went from Otto Porter to Kevin Durant so quick LOL – 3:27 PM

More on this storyline

Chris Haynes: Aside from joining one of the best well-ran franchises, what made committing to Raptors even more enticing for Otto Porter Jr. is that his wife is from Toronto. -via Twitter @ChrisBHaynes / July 1, 2022
