As​ the Kings​ try​ to put​ the issues between​ coach Dave​ Joerger​ and assistant general manager​ Brandon Williams behind​​ them, the front office continues to look at options to improve the roster. League sources said the Kings are closely monitoring the Washington Wizards with an eye on making a play for forward Otto Porter Jr.

More on Otto Porter to Kings?

The Kings have liked Porter for some time. A contingent from the front office traveled to the East Coast to meet with Porter when he was a restricted free agent in 2017. Porter opted to sign an offer sheet with Brooklyn instead of the Kings. That four-year, $106 million deal was matched by Washington. The Kings still haven’t filled their need for a small forward since missing out on Porter. Joerger has started guard Iman Shumpert at small forward most of the season.
The Kings met with Washington Wizards restricted free agent Otto Porter on Sunday and offered him a four-year deal worth approximately $100 million, league sources confirmed to The Bee. That is the maximum the Kings could offer Porter in an offer sheet. If Porter signs the offer sheet prior to July 6, the Wizards would have until 11:59 p.m. EST on July 8 to match the offer.
